Justin James is a singer songwriter from Vancouver, British Columbia. A professional windsurfer in his teen years, Justin was attacked by a tiger shark off the coast of South America when he was 20 years old, cutting major arteries, almost severing his foot, and leaving him with 250 stitches. This moment would prove to be a watershed in Justin's life when during a year-long recovery his grandma gave him a guitar and his first song was born. Since 2009 Justin has performed over 700 shows and toured in the USA, Japan, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Germany, Holland, U.K., Czech Republic, India, Canada, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean, and has performed with many high profile artists including Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Howie Day and Switchfoot.

It's been a minute friends!   

I'm guilty of taking a little time to myself. After years of touring and living out of my motorhome like a traveling gypsy, I decided to take some time off and recharge. It was a beautiful year! My mother and I traveled to India for two weeks of horseback riding throughout the Desert of Rajasthan delivering medical supplies and educational materials to schools. It was an experience that will never be forgotten! I then went on my own to Goa for two weeks of playing music and enjoying the Arabian coast. What an incredible country and I am left with memories that will last a lifetime.


In 2015 I also realized a lifelong dream and bought a Caribbean Villa just walking distance from the most famous surf beach in all the Dominican Republic. I've been dreaming about owning a place where I can build a studio and record my future albums and I now have the land to construct multiple cabanas to accommodate other artists and bands that want to record in paradise. My wish of musicians, surfers and good people visiting "J.J's Camp & Cantina" is coming to fruition and I hope to invite you in the near future!
