If there’s anything James Taylor, Jr., brings to the stage, it’s passion.
Voted Flame Magazine’s Best of 2012: Best Live Singer!
James has been writing poems, lyrics, and songs since the tender age of 6. However, his joy of singing far exceeds that of writing. Bringing lyrics to life is what this vocal prodigy loves best. His first album, “Unknown”, can currently be found on Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby and other online retailers. He's currently busy working on his second solo album.
Besides being an accomplished singer and performer, James was featured in the film “Magic Mentah“, filmed in 2006, currently awaiting release. He also worked on "Love Conquers All" (Under The Poppy), "An Alchemy of Desire" (Under The Poppy), "Legally Blonde" (DAG), "Drop Dead" (DAG), and "Much Ado About Nothing" (Big Girl Productions).
