JAMES KASPER


LN-020614-003 (1)

Fueled by Kasper’s rich, deep, versatile vocals and off-the-rails blues harp, Larry Burke’s unpredictable mix of ambient effected cello and e-bowed electric guitar, and a rotating cast of special players and harmony vocalists, 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 in 1998 (BCTV’s Variety Club Show of Hearts), collaborating and touring with current and former members of Blue Rodeo (Bob Wiseman, 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.” Exclaim Magazine says: “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.”
