Andrew St. James

Andrew St. James outlook may seem contrary to his generations unwavering optimism and the idea that the best is yet to come…that what we have done before is only setting the stage.  His music is complex and introspective and sometimes dark.  Like the over 50 million young people of his generation, he grew up with images of the Twin Towers falling; Occupy Wall Street;  wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and inner-city violence being replayed daily on the nightly news…and it shows in his writing. As a voyeur of modern life’s travails, his lyrics echo with complex questions and commentary.
