Biography

Singer-songwriter José James who grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States 1978 and later settled in New York. Before his fame he trained at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City, his first album was The Dreamer released in 2008.

José James has always been on the quest for new musical horizons; constantly evolving and blurring the lines between genres in the process. Now on the heels of his critically acclaimed Blue Note Records debut “No Beginning No End,” José returns with his dynamic and daring fifth album “While You Were Sleeping.” While keeping his trademark soulful baritone at the forefront, José adeptly weaves elements of indie rock, folk, funk, blues, hip hop and R&B into an experience journeying from desire to introspection and spiritual epiphany. “As an artist, I’m going to keep evolving,” he says resolutely. “I think my fans have now come to expect this from me. They want to know what I’m going to do next.”
