Michael James

I was born on July 19, 1967, in South Africa. I learned to play the guitar at age ten and have never had formal lessons. Over the years I learned to play drums, bass, a little keyboard, and some harmonica. I regret never being bold enough to pursue music as a career. In recent years as I try to get better at improvisation I have begun to realize the importance of music theory, and how much I missed out on. At one point I held "self-taught" up as a badge of honor, but realize that what it really means is that I did not have the best teacher.

Expression through music is a very personal thing and I am thankful for the privilege of sharing something from my heart and soul. I am so excited to present my music. I hope that everyone will find something they like in each of the songs. Recording my music is a welcome escape from my life as a geek to do something that has been my passion for many years. I hope you will let me know if you enjoy these songs. I am thankful to all my friends who inspire me to grow musically and in my faith, and for allowing me to be the worst guy on stage. I thank God for His grace on my life especially when I deserved it least, and His continued work in my life as I strive to be the man He wants me to be. "Not that have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me." - Philippians 3:12. I am and continue to be a work in progress.
