Eddie Owen Presents: Kristopher James (full band)
GENERAL ADMISSION: $25 in advance ($30 at the door)
A Florida born Americana/Soul songwriter and performer, Kristopher James, can synchronously transition from crooningly elegant falsetto to soaring soulful bellows – as his vocals and melody shine in the spotlight of the stage.
In 2019, Kristopher released his genre-arching full length, “Kindness Never Quits”, that rooted him as one of the most soulful voices in the South East – ushering him into position, to support acts, such as Marc Broussard, David Ryan Harris, Laura Reed, Kyshona Armstrong and so many more.
Through 2020 & 2021, with humble allure, capacity and persistence, the Tampa Bay native put the communal angst and uncertainty, into supporting furloughed musicians and recording – releasing 2 lauded singles “Never Had To Find Our Way” (Ft. Max Brown of The War & Treaty & Kyshona Armstrong) & “Feelings” (Ft. Mike Hicks of Rascal Flatts), independently.
James takes perhaps his most profound steps, recognizing the fragility of life, in making this year one of intention and attention – Solidifying his path in a courteous stride of soulful southern R&B impressions, on stage: with rousing guitars, swoonful keys and in-pocket rhythms – as well as off stage: with sincere stories, and recognition of how important community is to our continued growth.
