David James with Kassandra Clark
Restless spirit and fearless determination, coupled with a ferocious belief in loyalty and a hint of a hopeless romantic, are all qualities that manifest in David James.
With his debut performance at Boots and Hearts, a new EP, and two 2016 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Award™ nominations in the Rising Star and Recording Package of the Year (for album Songs About A Girl) categories, David has been busy mapping out his musical trajectory. Showing no signs of slowing down, he was recently back in the studio, recording new music.
Known for his charming sense of humour, like many artists, music and songwriting has always been in his soul. He jokes his career path was clearly defined, “when at age 14, following my impassioned performance of Aerosmith’s ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing’, I came in almost dead last and lost my junior high school Canadian Idol. I knew then that music must be my destiny!!” Signed to award-winning Canadian country music label MDM Recordings Inc., David describes his sound as melodic pop-rock influenced country.
