Andrew James was born in the Detroit Metro area (which has a rich culture and history of many music genres). He experienced the musical excellence of a master guitarist while just a toddler. That musician was Phil Keaggy, who still performs and tours today. Andrew grew up in a Christian family and became a Christian at a young age. He now resides in Music City - Nashville, Tennessee.
In October of 2011, the journey began with his first guitar purchase. Working quickly, he was able to get his first video up on YouTube in July of 2012 (which you can view here). November of that year, he bought his first recording equipment, which he then went to make a 4 song CD with that December. While Andrew has enjoyed performing cover music of great guitarists such as Phil Keaggy and Trace Bundy, he has also done many original songs. The next summer, Andrew produced some more original songs, and was able to actually sell some of his music though his NoiseTrade account.
He is currently working on writing and recording his first ”real” album which will consist of 10 or so completely original songs. Andrew’s focus is mainly upon acoustic guitar instrumental pieces, but he can play a wide variety of instruments and musical genres. He enjoys recording in a home studio which he built himself. His goal is to produce interesting original music and to operate a professional music studio. Simply put, Andrew is very excited about making wonderful music.
