Shawn James’ voice is a force of nature, a musical preacher to a flock that accepts everyone, a combination of the gospel choirs he sang with as a youngster and his training in classical music and opera. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, James’ timeless sound is steeped in blues legends like Robert Johnson and Son House, forever at the crossroads of damnation and redemption, the two inextricably woven into the fabric of his songs.
Smooth, sophisticated, and soulful beyond his years, Sam Houston’s rich expressive sound can only be described as tantalizing. Born of his admiration for such greats as Erykah Badu, Frank Ocean, and The Weeknd he has originated and honed a style of his own that speaks to the heart and soul of each listener. His style will draw you in and stroke your soul with unbridled passion and delight.
An accomplished songwriter and composer, Sam Houston is a classically trained musician with the ability to seamlessly move throughout most genres of music with skillful ease. His talent is lavish and diverse as he is also an accomplished pianist and drummer. He has been a member of the world renowned American Boy Choir and the critically acclaimed Heritage Show Choir; having had the opportunity to have participated with them for their 2006, 2008, and 2009 procurements of 1st place at the McDonald’s Gospel Fest.
