SHORT BIO & PRESS RELEASE INFORMATION

 

Originally from Memphis, TN, James Robinson is an old-school crooner on the order of his musical predecessors Smokey Robinson, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway. But his musical influences don't end there. From jazz heavy-weights like Abbey Lincoln, to Blues greats like Johhny Guitar Watson, to Alt-Rock phenoms like Radiohead, to Southern Hip-hop legendary duo 8 Ball & MJG -- James draws inspiration from their music and performances to create a style that is completely his own.

James is not only an accomplished singer and performer, he is a talented songwriter and music producer who has written extensively for other artists including Bobby Sparks, Jaron Marshall, and Temple Underground, among many others. He is currently working on his own project which is due to be released in 2021.

 

James is currently touring with jazz drummer Brannen Temple of Temple Underground, and with Bobby Sparks, the master jazz/soul keyboardist of Grammy Award winning jazz group Snarky Puppy and late jazz trumpeter, Roy Hargrove’s band RH Factor.
