At just 20 years old, Justin James stared down his own mortality when a life changing encounter with a tiger shark left him bleeding to death on a remote South American beach. Multiple blood transfusions and 250 stitches later, James found himself depleted, bedridden and bewildered for what was to become an agonizing year of recovery. It was during this harrowing stretch that an unlikely gift from his grandmother, a new acoustic guitar, revived his longing for life and unveiled a songwriter whose voice today has him rising the charts and captivating the world with his performance.
Known for his bliss-induced songs of love and living, James spends most of his days basking in the rays of his new lease on life: surfing and writing songs on the sun-baked shores of California and Hawaii; ultimately to share his music with his fans across the world.
James’ songs have been exposed to millions of listeners. In 2010, Delta Airlines, McDonalds and Hollister Co. have all placed his music. His songs have also made a huge splash on network TV scoring several hit shows including among others:
The Hills, Laguna Beach, Las Vegas, The Ghost Whisperer
The independent success which James has cultivated, honored him a Best Male Vocalist nod at the LA Music Awards & led him to sign with Sony International. It also landed him in the studio with famed producers Mikal Blue and Andrew Williams. The first single off James’ album “Perfect Sometimes” features Hawaiian ukulele virtuoso & Sony label mate Jake Shimabukuro. The two gifted artists have not only collaborated on recordings but also toured Japan together.
The “Summertime” single is already climbing the charts in Hawaii where it just broke the top 20 on Clear Channel 101.9.
Together with song and stage, James is striving to ensure that the sun will never set on the ocean of opportunities that life presents.
