Originally from Killeen, Texas, Bryan James is a songwriter with a passion for the older style of country music played by legends like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Hank Williams Jr. Having always been captivated by the story-telling aspect of a song, he takes his own experiences and weaves them into the stories in his music. Growing up a military brat, Bryan’s seen many things having lived in 7 different states and two countries. It’s those experiences, everyday life, and the people he’s met that he writes about in his songs. You can instantly feel a very real and genuine quality to his songs that remind you of the true roots of country music.
With the goal of always making music that reminds the listener of a memory or allows them to create a new one, it’s easy to see why Bryan has created such a buzz in a short amount of time. Bottom line, his music connects with people because it’s about every day life. That connection is obvious by the thousands of shares and comments his songs have received on his Facebook page. For Bryan, music is a passion and he doesn’t look at it as a road to riches or fame. He sums up his journey by saying “All I do is try and tell my own story through the songs that I write. If even one of those songs can connect with someone and take them somewhere, it’s all I could ever ask for. Everything else that may happen is just a bonus.”
