Eisemann Center Presents New Zealand Musician Graeme James Oct. 11
Eisemann Center Presents Graeme James at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson, Texas on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the Bank of America Theatre. Award-winning songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Graeme James is bringing his captivating live show to North America for the very first time. Known for his high energy performance featuring a loop pedal and layers of electric violin, guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, percussion and velveteen vocals; this is a one man show you won't want to miss.
Hailing from New Zealand, Graeme James started his musical journey busking on the streets of his hometown of Wellington. The response from the public was so positive that it kick-started a summer road trip centered around street performance. A major break-through came later that summer in the tourist mecca of Queenstown, where he would play nightly, busking concerts to crowds of 200-300 people by the lakefront. This started to gather what would become a large, loyal and global fan base. That year, on the recommendation of a fellow street performer, Graeme ended up releasing the first of two very successful cover albums.
Graeme had always written his own songs, but it wasn't until 2015 that he began to release them. His original music met with immediate interest and his first single Alive placed second in the singer songwriter/folk category of the international songwriting competition Unsigned Only. Alive was the lead single from his debut album News From Nowhere, which took Graeme on a string of sold out shows around New Zealand and Australia.
Just a few months after releasing News from Nowhere on Spotify his music started to gain significant traction with international audiences- especially in the U.S. and Canada. This lead to him being discovered on Spotify by Nettwerk Music Group CEO Terry McBride and the resulting label signing has helped propel him onto the international stage, cementing him as a folk artist to watch. Having accumulated over 15 million streams online, Graeme is excited to be releasing a new single and embarking on a 34-date tour of North America. The Times Are Changing Tour allows fans new and old the opportunity to see his exciting one-man show for the first time.
