Heartfelt singer-songwriter (and college dropout) James Quick emerged in 2015 with not much more than a handful of tracks recorded in his dorm room and an insatiable will to succeed.
With a style that evokes James Bay, Ed Sheeran, Jon Bellion and John Mayer, James achieves a balance of unforgettable hooks and honest, relatable storytelling about his relationships, fears and ambitions. The style came to fruition shortly after a move to New Orleans where James recorded his debut EP "Leftovers", which earned James quite an unexpected organic following (5 million streams on Spotify to date).
Born in 1996 in Marin just outside San Francisco, James honed his skills playing guitar in his high school jazz band, along with a jazz trio he formed shortly after - the influence of which is still clear in James' exploratory guitar work today. James' live set incorporates sampled and electronic elements, bringing a renewed energy to his tracks.
James' just released an EP "Oceanside" that will serve as the culmination of a whirlwind period which gave James his first taste of industry attention, but also found him dropping out of school to pursue music full time and working through "girl problems" - all of which has served as inspiration for his songwriting. <br>
