James Bene is an American singer-songwriter living in Los Angeles who has been writing, playing and composing music since he was a child. A natural performer, James earned a BFA in Music from The Catholic University in Washington D.C and later toured as a performing artist in musicals, plays and other theatrical platforms. Music has been and always will be James’ true love. As a songwriter he expresses himself though strong melody, storytelling and by always marching to the beat of his own drum. A renegade at heart, James moves his fans with his music using soulful melodies, inspired vocals and conviction of self expression through his lyrics. The opening lyric in the electro-pop anthem “American Warrior”..."A small town boy lived by the river...he was a fighter, a survivor"... sets the tone of his mission to write influential, electric and inspired music meant to rouse emotional states within its listeners.
