Originally from the south side of Chicago, Chris James has been making music for most of his life. After studying music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Chris spent several years collaborating with talented musicians in a few different bands from Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Nashville. He has toured the U.S. and Europe, has been the opening act for artists such as Blackberry Smoke, Marshall Tucker, and Miranda Lambert, and has been a part of the Kid Rock Chillin’ the Most Cruise. Chris got his start as a drummer, but spends most of his time these days as a solo act playing the guitar and singing. He now calls Chicago home again and plays gigs all over the city.
