Brad James is a thief.
Not your typical robber, mind you. Humble, sincere, and honest, the Stoney Creek, Ontario-based country singer/songwriter would never dream of taking someone else’s physical property.
Born in the modest town of Belleville, Ontario, the past seven years have found this engaging singer/songwriter discover an adoration for music when literally stumbling into his first acoustic guitar.
“My friend left a guitar in my trunk and I started messing around with it. I learned a couple of chords and really came to enjoy it,” he confides wistfully about his humble beginnings. “Working at a country bar, I got to know some of the bands. Eventually, one of them convinced me to get up on stage on and sing. Besides being ridiculously nervous, it was amazing. That was my first introduction to singing country tunes.”
