James Robinson

New Beginnings (Independent)

James Robinson gives a high energy and charismatic performance that explores instrumental improvisation to the deepest level. James is greatly inspired by the unique sounds of the multi-cultural influences of the San Fransisco Bay Area home. He blends these inspirations into a virtuosic exhibition, leaving the listeners in awe of his talents. Robinson grew up the twelfth of thirteen, with eight brothers playing guitar. He learned from his siblings how to play blues, funk, jazz, classical, and all manner of styles. His four studio albums are diverse and carefully crafted to showcase his mastery of technique and skill.
