"If Steve James is well known in the world of contemporary folk, blues and roots music, it's not because he has a high-power publicist. He has toured internationally and extensively, performing at festivals, concert venues and clubs and offering a variety of music workshops for the sizable "hands-on" contingent in his ferociously loyal audience. In addition, he's created numerous instruction books, print lessons and articles, DVDs and on-line tutorials for guitar, slide guitar and mandolin for Acoustic Guitar and Homespun.
His touted playing, singing and song-craft have been featured on several solo albums. For these, he's been joined in the studio by musical cohorts including Bad Livers, Bob Brozman, Cindy Cashdollar, Ruthie Foster, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Gary Primich, Ann Rabson, and his frequent duet partner Del Rey. As a sideman, on stage and in the studio, he's played with Howard Armstrong, Bo Diddley, Kinky Friedman, Lum Guffin, Buddy Guy, John Hammond, Furry Lewis, James McMurtry, Maria Muldaur, Jesse Thomas, and Sam The Sham. He's often been invited to jam onstage with the likes of Hot Tuna, Tommy Emmanuel and Chip "Wild Thing" Taylor, has recorded soundtrack music for film director Richard Linklater, and has had his original tunes covered by a slate of artists which includes his early hero and friend Dave Van Ronk."
