Ambassadors of Humanity

     People always ask me how I do it, and I shy away from the truth. My road to success as an independent musician began five years ago. I gave up drinking and smoking and quit my promising career with Vail Resorts to chase after a dream that had no guaranteed outcome. Friends still…

The Jeffrey James Show’s Top 5 Performances of 2017

#1 California WorldFest was a dream. I’m still at a loss for words after being featured on the same page as my favorite artist of all time, Michael Franti. We rocked two sets with our band from Hawaii, featuring Tianna Malone Jennings, Erik Avery, Christopher McNinch, EmiLove, and Riconeckt. I also had a blast performing…

There is something in the air here. I felt it the second I stepped off the train. The creativity seeps through the cracks and rolls off the skateboards. Paint sprays out of a graffiti can, turning a swastica into a piece of art. This city is haunting. The silhouette of a steeple on a dark…

Early Morning Reflections in Berlin

This is it Cherish it Life is so fragile & fleeting I think of those who’ve left us McKinley, Trevor, & Reid They send whispers on the wind to Keep Going Left the ego behind Now I’m just wide eyed In a land of graffiti and concrete A familiar friend In a foreign land Music…
