At an early age, David James was heavily influenced by the sounds of rock music. Bands like Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Tom Petty, The Beatles, and Black Sabbath, just to name a few, helped fuel the artist David is today. Music has always been a part of his home life and his fondest childhood memories. Whether he was staying up late to hear his parents play guitar and sing together, stealing his sister's CD's to share with friends, or just listening to records from his father's collection, music was, and is, in his blood. It is his passion.
His first professional recording experience began when he was just a teenager in the Los Angeles alternative rock band Wooden Circus. They recorded one album for Mercury/Little Dog Records. Since then, David has decided to take on everything there is involving creating new music by himself... his own "situation," if you will. This includes playing all the instruments, songwriting, and vocalizing.
David James is currently working on his solo project, David James Situation, which can be described as classic rock for today's listeners. Whether he is performing his original songs locally with his live band or playing an intimate solo acoustic show, his unique sound is appreciated by all. You can reach David James Situation on all social media platforms and listen to his music (including his newest album, Aquarian Comedown) on all streaming services. Physical CD's and limited edition merchandise can be purchased on his website. Be sure to sign up for his email list as well to get all the latest info regarding shows, tours, and new music.
