James Struthers


Band Pop Acoustic




"James Struthers Press"

"Yes, his intricate musicianship and clear understanding of instant hooks and pop songwriting totally defy his fresh face. But it’s James' casual, smooth delivery and natural playfulness in songs like 'You, Me, and O.P' (an ode to never growing up) that connect immediately. Pretty sure my mom, my girlfriend, and my neighbor’s 13 yr old daughter would all put his picture on the wall and his disc in the player."

~ Bobby Kimberley, The Musebox

"[Struthers] has something special, he has this charisma... [he] plays in a room, a bar or a restaurant, and people would be reading, or doing something else, and [he] has the ability to hypnotize the audience... I think integrity should be affiliated with [Struthers' music]. A strong voice with lyrics that have smarts -- a hook that puts a smile on my face."

~ Howard Mandshein (92 Citi FM)

“The twenty-one-year-old writes songs that are fun and playful like new love, with melt-your-heart lyrics filled with devotion, sung in his laid back, relaxing style. The music gets attention too.”

~ Sandbox Magazine

“Don’t let James Struthers fool you – the local songwriter may sing about Transformers and Easy-Bake Ovens, but he has a sound and style beyond his years.”

~ The Uniter

“[A] very soulful voice… This is what you hope for when an artist combines pop, jazz and blues.”

~ Chris Burke-Gaffney (Chantal Kreviasuk, McMaster & James, Sierra Noble) - Various

With his deep blue eyes, disarming smile and cool, calm demeanor, James Struthers may be a 22 year old heartthrob; but his allure goes far beyond the sightlines. He's also an incredibly gifted songwriter and guitarist with a soulful voice and a young, aspiring business man with relentless, DIY work ethic.

"Nothing worth doing in life comes easy, but it doesn't feel like work to me," says Struthers "...I feel very lucky that I've found what I love to do, and even more lucky that I wake up every morning and get to do it."

He's toured the country 5 times, released 2 EPs, 4 music videos, and has cracked the Canadian AC charts with his festive single 'Blue Christmas' in under 2 years.

And there are no signs of stopping anytime soon. He and WCMA award winning 'Producer Of The Year' Arun Chaturvedi are working on a full length album to be released in the spring, which will be accompanied by North American tour dates.

"He's prolific.. Every time I get together with him in the studio, or have a phone call, he has new ideas in the works," says his producer/manager Arun. "He has everything you need to be successful in this industry…talent, creativity, a keen business sense and a relentless work ethic….and he's the nicest guy you'll ever meet!"
