Nathan James

Nathan James


In walks 24 year old Bob Dylan, dressed like Eddie Vedder with Tom Petty's hair, he swaggers towards the stage with Ryan Adams' brash persona (but with a politeness that would impress Damien Rice) and Matt Nathanson's quirky audience appeal. "Hello everyone, I'm Nathan James..."


Singer/Songwriter Nathan James packed up his 1995 Buick Park Avenue just under one year ago and moved from Iowa to Southern California in pursuit of his musical aspirations. Since arriving, James has steadily played shows, pieced together a killer band and truly discovered his sound after completing his first album in the summer of 2008. Blending sounds of Damien Rice's vocals with the melodies of Ryan Adams' love lamented and heartache filled songwriting, one would surely find James' Music soothing and relatable to anyone who has ever been in a relationship, good or bad...
