With a resume that includes singing lead on Patrice Rushen’s ‘What’s the Story’ and vocal contributions to Stevie Wonder’s seminal CD ‘Songs in the Key of Life’, the Grammy nominated Josie James has done it all.
Born and raised in Los Angeles she is equally at home on the concert stage or in the recording studio with the ability to switch effortlessly from R&B to gospel to pop and to jazz. Josie’s Grammy nomination came for her performance of ‘Street Life’ with The Crusaders, B.B. King, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded live at London’s Royal Festival Hall. In fact she is no stranger to the United Kingdom having appeared at Wembley Arena in front of 100,000 people for The Nelson Mandela Freedom Concert and with Burt Bacharach on BBC television as part of the network’s ‘Electric Prom’ series.
