Boney James

Saturday, June 8, 2019, 5:00 AM


By the time he entered his teens, James was gigging with bands, and he turned pro at 19. He apprenticed as a sideman for artists like Morris Day and the Isley Brothers, picking up pointers on how to present himself onstage and off, and didnt cut his first album under his own name until he was 30. The independently released Trust led immediately to a major label deal and a string of increasingly successful recordings and live dates. His skill as a performer as well as a recording artist garnered this notice from the Boston Globe, James swaggered across the stage like a blacktop hero draining treys on an overmatched opponent. He even weaved his way through the audience, never missing a beat and all but daring the crowd not to have a good time."Over the years, James has racked up sales of more than three million records, four RIAA gold albums, four GRAMMY nominations, a Soul Train Award, nominations for two NAACP Image Awards and 10 CDs atop Billboards Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. In 2009, Billboard named him one of the Top 3 Contemporary Jazz Artists Of The Decade along with Kenny G and Norah Jones. With Honestly, as with futuresoul and the GRAMMY-nominated The Beat before it, Boney James is making some of the most stellar, wholly realized music of his career. Ive just grown up, personally and musically, he says. Im a lot calmer now when I approach making music and have more confidence. Im a give-110 percent kind of person and Im enjoying the process more now. I think that comes out in the music. Maybe thats why this new record is so much fun to listen to. There are parts on the record that still make me smile.James lives in Los Angeles with his wife of 32 years, Actress/Director Lily Mariye and has written scores for her film projects.
