Samuel James is in a class by himself. Among the most creative guitar players performing today, this blues-based singer/songwriter has dazzled audiences around the world for the better part of a decade.
A mixture of Charlie Patton, Preston Reed, Bill Withers and Townes Van Zandt , Samuel James will have you stomping your feet, wondering how he's getting all those sounds out of one one guitar, remembering old heartbreaks and falling in love all over again.
James was born the last in a long line of performers including dancers, story tellers, choir singers, porch-stomping guitar thumpers, and a session-jazz pianist dating back to the 1890s.
His critically acclaimed trilogy of albums, Songs Famed for Sorrow and Joy (2008) For Rosa, Maeve and Noreen (2009) And for the Dark Road Ahead (2012) for Toronto's Northern Blues label has gained Samuel praise not only for carrying on great traditions, but being an innovator as well.
Samuel James has received standing ovations for his performances from Maine to California as well as Canada, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland Germany, France, Portugal, Spain, Norway, Belgium, Poland, Romania, Russia and Turkey.
