Graeme James is a multi-instrumentalist who uses looping to layer his multitude of instruments. Violin, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, mandolin and vocals are all part of his repertoire. Born in New Zealand, Graeme left his day job to become a full-time street performer. A major breakthrough came in Queenstown, where he would busk nightly by the lakefront. Crowds slowly grew from just a few fans to over 300 people at each show. This started to create what would become a large, loyal and global fan base and would also lead to his first self-released album in 2013. His songs have now been streamed over 15 million times. This show is part of his 34 date North American tour in support of his new single, “The Times Are Changing.”
Opening for Graeme James is Canadian folk singer-songwriter Joshua Hyslop.
