Timothy James is an American singer, songwriter, and country music recording artist. Born and raised in Lincoln, California, James grew up engulfing himself in the works of classical and country music icons like Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, George Strait, Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw. After being awarded a scholarship to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in Hollywood CA, James moved to Los Angeles where he studied the arts of singing and theatrical performance from 2009 to 2012. Following his time at AMDA, Timothy James honed his skills as a performing artist touring clubs and music venues across the West Coast with fellow California natives and writing partners, Jeff Matej and Josh Misko.
In 2015 Timothy James signed a publishing and artist development deal with Cutcraft Music Group in Los Angeles, CA. Shortly afterwards, James relocated to Nashville, TN where he recorded his first studio records as a performing artist with Jason Aldean band members, Rich Redmond, Tully Kennedy, and Kurt Allison of New Voice Entertainment.
In 2017 Josh Misko left California to join Tim in Tennessee, and they began to develop their signature sound while continuing to write with Jeff remotely. The two California transplants would go on to record their debut EP “It Don’t Live Here” at Nashville’s Starstruck Studios, produced by Nick Bearden of Jamestown Revival and co-written by Jeff Matej, in 2019. “It Don’t Live Here” was released on June 22nd, 2021, and is available for streaming and digital download everywhere.
Timothy James has directly supported acts like David Nail, LoCash, Lucero, Tommy Stinson, and more, and is exclusively published worldwide by Cutcraft Music Group and administered by Concord Music Publishing. Currently in the studio recording their next album, Timothy James is expecting to release a new single come Winter 2021.”
