Aiden James is a Philadelphia-based, indie-touring artist who recently premiered his new single & music video “Elixir” with Popwrapped. AJ’s new single which draws on nostalgic 80’s sounds, has been described as “a light after the darkness” - San Francisco Bay Area Reporter
While handling most of the workload himself, Mr. James has collaborated with talented musicians such as Drummer/Producer Elliot Jacobson (Ingrid Michaelson, Elle King), Lead Guitarist/Musical Director Billy Norris for Gavin DeGraw, and songwriter friend Matt Morris (Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Mary J. Blige)
When playing live, James uses acoustic guitars, small synth keyboards, and vocal effect processors, all seamlessly on the fly.
AJ made his first television broadcast debut in 2010 on MTV Logo. His music has climbed the charts to iTunes Top 20, all as a self-taught musician and without the help of a traditional record label. His songs are fresh, polished, and catchy.
Mister James has been featured with SPIN, MTV, Logo, Vh1, SiriusXm, XPN, The Advocate, Out Magazine, SF Chronicle, The Boston Globe, The Fight Magazine, Philadelphia Weekly & DC Metro Weekly to name a few.
