Michael James is a rising star in the country music scene, hailing from Long Island, New York. Growing up near the beach, Michael’s love for country music was sparked when he attended a Kenny Chesney concert with his father at the age of 13. From that moment on, Michael knew that music was his calling. Soon after, Michael’s athletic background playing football and basketball came to an end due to multiple concussions. However, it was country music that helped him find himself again. Determined to pursue his passion for music, Michael saved up money from part-time jobs and bought a guitar at the age of 19, teaching himself how to play through YouTube tutorials. As Michael started playing covers and posting them online, he quickly found his own unique voice in the music industry. The positive response he received from his audience encouraged him to start writing his own songs, discovering a newfound love for country music and the ability to tell his own stories. While attending college at SUNY Old Westbury, Michael booked a trip down to Nashville with his brother, cousin, and best friend to go record his first two songs “Without a Roof On” and “Fake ID”. Michael’s hard work and dedication continued to pay off, and in January 2022, he made the move to Nashville, Tennessee. Since then, Michael has opened up for country acts like LOCASH, Restless Road and Carolyn Miller. His natural ability to connect with his audience is undeniable, and his music tells his own stories in a way that is relatable to everyone who listens. Along with country music, Michael is also zealous about Christian music which can be heard in the lyrics on his upcoming project. His love for Jesus is a significant factor that inspires him to create music that uplifts and encourages his listeners. Michael’s passion for mixing country and Christian music is evident in every note he sings, as he seamlessly blends the two genres together. With his unique style and strong faith, Michael James is on his way to becoming a household name in country music. Keep your eyes on this rising star as his journey to the top is just beginning.
