James Leclaire and the Cable 22’s
James is a canadian singer/songwriter from Ottawa who released his 4th full length album “These Weights” in September 2015.
From fist pumping, stomp your feet working-man anthems to soulful ballads of love, heartache and loss, James’ songs are all about storytelling. Intensely thought-out lyrics grind through James’ raspy vocal chords with powerful emotion to produce rich, dark imagery, that can really punch you in the heart. The experience escalates even further when backed by his band The Cable 22’s, bassist Chris McLean and drummer Michael Hunter.
The Jimmy Tri-Tone Band
This folk-rock duo is composed of James Walters and Randelle Ashley. James, sporting a full beard (and I mean full) was nicknamed “Jimmy Tri-Tone” by Randelle for the three colours it seemed to flaunt. The name stuck and they shortly after formed The Jimmy Tri-Tone Band. They now reside together in a small countryside house near White Lake, Ontario and spend most of their time making music, gardening, cutting wood and making maple syrup. James and Randelle just completed their first tour out west and plan to hit the road again soon! In the meantime, you can find them around the Ottawa Valley playing shows, hosting open mics and jamming at house parties!
James’ raspy voice tells tales of lovers, cowboys, and everything in between
