Brief bio

US singer James Everett comes from the villages of Jazz, Blues, Soul, Funk and Gospel, creating a vocal performance fusion of R&B/Neo-soul with a passion to inspire others with songs riding on the vibration of a timeless vibe. 

James is a classically trained singer, known for his charismatic appeal and baritone-tenor (falsetto eclectic) vocal style. As one fan puts it “This is what we’re missing, romance, respect and the ability to weave through the genres with style. James is magnetic and charming.” 

A native of San Francisco, James musical journey began at the age of 4 while sitting on a church pew with his feet dangling amid the sound of jubilant tambourines in syncopation to hands clapping. Growing up, some of James' musical influences include: Frank Sinatra, Luther Vandross, Smokey Robinson, Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett, Al Jarreau and Johann Sebastian Bach to name a few. It was not just men who inspired James to sing, he particularly paid close attention to the likes of Sarah Vaughn, Nancy Wilson, Minnie Riperton, Roberta Flack and Aretha Franklin’s revived soul.
