Brief bio

 US singer James Everett blends a history of cultural experiences from the villages of jazz, blues, soul and gospel to create a vocal performance fusion of R&B/Neo-soul, reminiscent to times past with the passion to inspire others with songs riding on the edge of that timeless vibe. 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, looking up at his big sister amid the sound of jubilant tambourines in syncopation to hands clapping. Inspired by a number of musical influences (Frank Sinatra, Luther Vandross, Smokey Robinson, Peabo Bryson, Al Jarreau, Gospel, Jazz, Soul and Johann Sebastian Bach), James found his baritone-tenor (falsetto eclectic) vocal style. 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.
