JAMES KASPER


 

“Gorgeous alt-country crooning.” – Ride The Tempo

“James Kasper soon entrances your ears, and it is fair to draw comparison with the likes of Chris Isaak. There is much to enjoy, not least of which is Kasper’s warm, melancholic voice.” – Bluesbunny.com

“With the burning wail of his harmonica and his smouldering lyrics, Kasper artfully wrenches empathy from listeners…the noir side adds depth of character and individuality to his music, helping to distinguish him from the thousands of other singer-songwriters in the country roots genre.” – exclaim! magazine

“Smart, original songs framed by a seductively whimsical sound.” – Times-Colonist

“Haunting vocals, strong songwriting. Enjoyable, introspective.” – Monday Magazine

“James Kasper’s songwriting skills take the listener on a journey with each phrase turned. Layer upon layer of rootsy goodness.” – 101.9FM CFUV

“Good lyrics and strong, interesting melodies are hard to find in much of today’s music. James Kasper delivers and then some.” – Cordova Bay Records

 

With rich, deep, versatile vocals and off-the-rails blues harp,  Victoria BC-based James Kasper captivates audiences with a roots noir sound that is influenced by City and Colour, Keaton Henson, Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Hayden, Blue Rodeo, and even a little Radiohead. Kasper’s career highlights include opening for the legendary Ray Charles at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver in 1998, collaborating and touring with Blue Rodeo alumni Bob Wiseman and Bob Egan, being named “Hardest Working Person in Local Music” by Monday Magazine in 2008, and releasing an award-winning music video for his song “The Gospel.”
