King James Coal on SoundBetter

One stop musician shop. University educated in guitar and bass, more than capable of composing, transposing and creating parts for any instrument tailored for your project. Studied with Lorne Lofsky, Roy Patterson, Artie Roth, Mike Murley, Levon Isckanian to name a few. After 22 years of faithful devotion my unique style cuts through

All name dropping and boasting aside, I am confidant in my capabilities but truly understand my limits and will never commit to a project I can't handle. I can play and arrange in most genres of music. My approach is different for each project and try to keep it as organic as possible, always accepting input and willing to work out any idea's you might have. Generally I keep things as uncomplicated as possible only adding what a song needs not a showcase of how many notes and uncommon chords I can use. I am easy going and always willing to create what you want, not settling for mediocrity. I have had a hard time in a small city to make music a viable source of income since the economy crash of 2008, I gave up teaching and performing after losing financial stability. Instead I practiced every day after work doing a number of menial jobs, humbling me greatly and becoming more skilled at my craft. In the last year I have started performing and realized my purpose. This is my new beginning and am motivated and excited to start creating again.
