James has decades of experience on both sides of the glass and has been recognized widely for both his audio production skills and his musicianship and composition, drawing both critical praise and the admiration of his musical mentors, such as Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. He formed FireCat (formerly JBS Recording) in 2007, where he has developed a long and varied portfolio, recording voice with Kris Kristofferson, working on shows with the BBC, American Public Media and TLC, corporate projects with Pepsi, fictional podcasts and a slew of musical projects with pioneering NYC musicians in genres ranging from classical, to progressive rock, to acoustic folk to heavy metal, to Latin Jazz and hip hop. He’s also recorded nearly one hundred a cappella albums with collegiate groups throughout the northeast. When he’s not recording, mixing, mastering and producing work for others, he’s working on his own albums and touring domestically/internationally with his band Edensong.
James graduated with degrees in music and computer science from Wesleyan University, where his thesis was awarded honors by musical luminaries Anthony Braxton and Neely Bruce among others. This thesis went on to become “The Fruit Fallen,” the debut album from Edensong and paved the way for a performance career with the band. Also while at Wesleyan, he was a member of co-ed a cappella group Quasimodal, which sparked his interest in the style and career of recording it!
Upon moving to Westchester County after graduation, James established JBS Recording out of his home in White Plains, where he honed his audio skills and worked with a wide range of talent for almost a decade before moving to NYC to expand his business.
In 2014, James relocated to NYC, first in DUMBO (Brooklyn), and now it’s current location in SOHO (Lower Manhattan). While the studio facility is a massive upgrade, James retains his client-focused drive, flexibility, innovative energy and approachable demeanor that he developed almost 15 years ago working out of his attic.
