Brendan James is an American singer-songwriter in the pop/folk genre, akin to David Gray, Jason Mraz, and Elton John.  Signed to Capitol Records at age 25 and Universal Records at 28, James has reached the #1 spot on iTunes multiple times, accrued more than one million fans in 65 countries on Spotify, and has been played on multiple formats of American and European radio. He has collaborated or toured with the likes of John Mayer, John Legend, Cat Stevens, Carly Simon, Keb Mo, and Andy Grammar, and his songs have been placed in over 15 major television shows and films worldwide. 

Truly summing Brendan James up is a difficult task, though. You’d have to meet him, talk with him, hear him sing his songs to understand his shocking talent and unique purpose in today’s oversaturated music scene. As he puts it: ”What I hope to do is calm, strengthen, and transport my listeners to a better self, and in turn maybe I get there too.”  And he means it. Penning songs on the topics of love, optimism, political enlightenment, simplifying, self empowerment, marriage equality, wanderlust, raising a family, aging, and adventuring aimlessly through the natural world, James has left no stone unturned in his six studio albums to date; and in his words, “I’ve only just begun.”
