Benjamin James

Boone, NC
For fans of:Steve Reich, Sufjan Stevens, Gungor, Josh Garrels

The organic folk of Benjamin James is drastically heightened by his use of dramatics. His brand of orchestral pop is extremely emotive and uplifting, complete with gorgeous string arrangements and gangs of voices reaching for the heavens. There's an innovative uniqueness to his sound that seems consistent across his material. He may be nodding to other folk-pop influencers before him, but always with a firm and unyielding tendency to just be himself.
