Songwriter/performer Samantha James has spent the past three years honing her estimable skills as a modern-day singer/songwriter within the dance/electronic/soul genre. Her sultry style, vocal cadences, and international rhythms are largely influenced by such artists as Sade, Basia, Amel Larrieux, Bebel Gilberto and Morcheeba.

Her hit debut album spawned a Billboard #1 Dance Single for “Rise” and has put her on the map and in the hearts of electronic / dance music enthusiast worldwide. “Rise” quickly became an “iTunes Top 100 Selling Dance Album.”

While in the studio working on her sophomore album, Samantha re-recorded four of the best selling tracks from “Rise” as stripped down acoustic masterpieces. These live recorded versions will surely satisfy Samantha James fans while turning her on to an entirely new demographic.
