About Me

This born and raised native Detroiter grew up on the stylings of Motown music. However, having grown up in the church, James began singing and playing at an early age. His love for ensembles and directing choirs fostered a great love of film music. James later went on to take up Theory, Composition, Conducting, Computer Music, Voice, Jazz Piano, and Organ at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor.

This multitalented singer/songwriter/composer excels in sound design, sound engineering, and arranging. While piano/keyboard is his main instrument, James has the ability to play percussion, guitar, organ, and bass. Last but not least, James is the owner of J IV Media LLC—a Metro Detroit based company that provides music for advertising, television, and film.

I have been in the industry since 2002.
