Bio

“A passionate observer,
emotionally invested in the lives of the
everyday, desperate characters around him.”
[Slap Magazine]

Pennsylvania-via-Baltimore singer/songwriter Anthony St. James writes soulful story songs and folk ballads with the vibe of a worn acoustic guitar rescued from the floor of CBGB’s.

Since 2008 he’s performed in cafes, clubs, bars, theaters, festivals, book stores, record shops and radio stations throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. He’s shared the stage with acclaimed troubadours Joe Crookston, Vikesh Kapoor, Bill Scorzari, and Svavar Knutur, and played legendary venues the Sidewalk Cafe (NYC), Bush Hall (London), the Castle Hotel (Manchester), Bruxelles (Dublin) and Cafe Rosenberg (Reykjavik).

His debut album Songs of Anthony St. James was released October 15, 2021 on Crotalus Records (US) and Aldora-Britain Records (UK). 

Press:

“Vivid storytelling and a strong, soulful voice.”
[Evolution of Folk]

“Lyrics that brim with color, sharp insights and telling details.
Certainly he’s a young man worth watching.”
[Jazziz Magazine]

“Anthony tells great stories.  His writing style is pure storyteller.
And his between-song crowd interaction?  His introductions?  Perfect.”
[Oystermouth Radio]

“A captivating live presence… he balances warm anecdotes with a wry sense of humor,
like a stripped-down Springsteen on a small stage in a dark bar.”
[The Buffalo Dispatch]
