Andrew St. James burnishes precise, eloquent pop songs to a high sheen with a sonic cloth woven of dizzy psychedelia. Born of a stranger-than-fiction life filled with intrigue and truly prodigious creative output, St. James is already barreling along at escape velocity.
“Reminds me of a very young Bob Dylan and Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes.” – Aaron Axelsen, Live 105
Seemingly destined for the arts (St. James was conceived during the 1994 Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge tour by birth parents working in the live music realm), his first job was singing in the San Francisco Opera as a ten year old. He discovered late 1960’s rock, taught himself how to play piano, and started writing songs.
“Heir to the indie-folk troubadours of yore, St James somehow always seems to top himself.” – The Wild Honey Pie
Doldrums was released in September 2013, and his sophomore album The Shakes was released that October. Then it got complicated. With one Veronica as a girlfriend and another as a manager, St. James found himself stuck; mired in a life of outrageous partying and constant waiting. Then, suddenly, St. James found himself Veronica-less. “I never got a chance to apologize to the Veronica’s for my part in our falling out. I decided I would make a record to serve that purpose.”
“Fans of Ryan Adams and the Flaming Lips alikewill find a kindred spirit in St. James.” – Amazon Music
