Kristopher James is one of those artists whose songwriting is sometimes overshadowed by his own show-stopping vocals. And that is most definitely a compliment. The dude can write, and man can he sing.
Through well received EP's and a brand new full length album, Kindness Never Quits, Kris's songs have morphed from folky, sometimes ethereal, americana-pop tunes into a sultry soul style Americana that gives us visions of an Amos Lee and Barry White collaboration–– which if you know Kris, is par for the course. He's a pleasant mix of styles and inspirations. His black framed glasses give him a look of intelligent innocence, while his colorfully tattooed arms tell a story of vibrant expression.
His long hair was in pig tails the day he visited us. Pair that with his western denim shirt, and he was almost channeling a young Willie Nelson.
We were glad to get a meaningful window of time with him away from the greenrooms of the southeast concert circuit where we usually––and always happily–– cross paths. We hope you enjoy getting to know Kristopher James.
