James was recently awarded the prestigious “People's Choice” award for his album “Dream of Inspiration.” He has also been internationally acclaimed as 'Instrumentalist of the Year' by the World-Wide Booksellers Organization. He was honored by President George Bush in a special reception for the National Veterans Convention in Salt Lake City in 2006.


“…..I'm just a farm boy from Utah with a love of music, the piano and the opportunity to share the wonderful sounds and power of music wherever I go,” quips James.


His piano artistry spans a wide scope of time and his repertoire includes the Classics, Broadway, Spiritual, Country, Patriotic and Movie Themes.
