Having travelled to Nashville to learn the ins & outs of recording with multiple recording artist such as the late Tammy Wynette. Growing in the Martinsburg, WV area he became friends with many of the area artist that have went on to make it big at some point in thier career. James began his musical journey when his mother who played alongside the great Patsy Cline in the local pubs handed down her "Red & White" Fender Stratocaster "Signature" guitar at the age of 16, he picked up a classic Ludwig Drum kit from a friend in a trade deal so to speak and so began the love of percussion, becoming bored with that scene he then began playing an old Magnus Organ that his grandmother had sitting around at the ripe age of 18 beginning the new love of the keyboards !
