Feeling a bit camera shy


James Linton is a multi-talented artist, a gifted singer-songwriter and an amazing guitarist. I can't believe that's one guy playing," is a common quote from spectators at his shows as he dazzles them with brilliant guitar instrumentals.

James is one of Phoenix' premiere performers performing for the NY Giants pre-Super Bowl Celebration, Wayne Newton's Make A Wish Event, and several other VIP engagements. Newton says "James is a Real Class Act." Arizona event coordinators know James' well and call upon him when the event calls for Class and extreme versatility.

James has a unique vocal quality that some say falls between the sounds of James Blunt and Rob Thomas. He recently teamed up with producer Billy Smiley of former chart topping Christian Rock group, White Heart to release the I Will Fly adult contemporary EP. Smiley has recorded and produced over 20 #1 hits. These songs and many of James' guitar instrumental are currently being considered for film and television placement. James has written several songs for corporate promotions with Pinnacle Premiums and is working with Rockin Kat Productions for upcoming films.

Performing since a teen, he has opened for names like Peter Frampton and was rocking on stages in Detroit to crowds of thousands at venues like Harpo's and State Theatre. In 2006, CSN Radio aired a live concert of his to over 1 million listeners and in 2007 his latest Latin Jazz guitar release, Song of The King, debuted for radio air play on Phoenix' KJZZ.

James' undeniable package of talents as a writer, singer, and instrumentalist; have placed him at the top of many industry insiders "Who to Watch " list.
