MARK JAMES - SONGPAINTER

ALOHA!

I GREW UP IN ARIZONA ON FOLK AND ROCK MUSIC...AND, OF COURSE, COUNTRY MUSIC WAS ALSO AROUND. I TAUGHT MYSELF TO PLAY GUITAR WHEN I WAS IN 8TH GRADE AND STARTED WRITING SONGS AND PERFORMING IN HIGH SCHOOL.THE PHOENIX AREA PRODUCED A LOT OF GREAT AND DIVERSE MUSIC AT THIS TIME, INCLUDING STEVIE NICKS AND ALICE COOPER. WAYLON JENNINGS PLAYED EVERY WEEKEND AT JD'S.

I HAVE BEEN WRITING AND PERFORMING ALL MY LIFE. I HAVE WON SOME NATIONAL SONGWRITING AWARDS AND RECORDED IN PHOENIX, NASHVILLE AND IN HAWAII.

I MOVED TO KAUA'I IN 2001, BUT HAVE BEEN PLAYING HAWAIIAN MUSIC SINCE MY FIRST VISIT IN THE LATE 80'S. NOW, I PERFORM ALL OVER THE ISLAND AS A SOLO ACT, A DUO AND AS BACKUP FOR THE LEGENDERY LARRY RIVERA, WHO BECAME MY FRIEND RIGHT AFTER I MOVED THERE.

NOW...I AM BACK IN ARIZONA, STILLING PICKING AND SINGING MY LITTLE HEART OUT.
