Born with music in his blood, singer-guitarist Paris James started playing at 7. His influences can be traced to his 2 grandfathers, one headed the largest Baptist church in Georgia, the other a notorious bootlegger who battled the police. Paris lived the Blues firsthand throughout his turbulent childhood in the American South. However, music taught him there was more to life than simple survival, and Paris imparts this life lesson with mojo working on overdrive. Paris James’ authentic voice has landed him a spot in the National Heritage Foundation Blues Hall of Fame.
