Brockton James

Brockton James has been a multi-instrumentalist since childhood, playing guitar, bass, keyboards, saxophone, harmonica and percussion. He recorded his first record, a three-song E.P. in Sacramento, California, in 1983. Since then, he has been involved with numerous recording projects, and has released four CDs, including the highly-acclaimed 2009 Holiday album, “A Vision of the Season.” But James also has the gift of comedy! He has composed, produced and performed on songs featured on the nationally-syndicated radio program, “The Dr. Demento Show,” one of which, a Christmas novelty tune, appeared on the CD, “Holidays in Dementia,” released by Rhino Records in 1995. It continues to be a popular comedy CD to this day!

James is well versed in “behind-the-scenes” activities as well. Possessing a thorough knowledge of audio equipment, he co-owned a concert sound reinforcement company while still in High School, and received a degree in Electronic Technology in 1984. Since then, he has worked at (and set up) recording studios, engineered live events and has worked in radio-broadcasting, advertising and theatrical sound-design. He has also produced and engineered projects for other artists, and has assisted them in their promotional efforts. Presently, James operates a private recording studio, concentrating on his own compositions and sound effects for use in film, TV, advertising, multimedia projects, etc.

James is a writer affiliate of Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI).
