Giovanni produces, writes and records original music and is a renowned performer. Also known as a style virtuoso, he’s had the New York Times comparing his vision to the late, great, Alexander McQueen.
Giovanni’s forthcoming EP is a window into the obstacles he has overcome as a mixed race, son of a prostitute. The complexity of his upbringing is represented by the vast sonic palette which ranges from 50’s surf rock, gut bucket soul, to the origins of hip hop.
Musical legends Sam Cooke, Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding have inspired his sound, while the work of iconic film stars like James Dean, Marlon Brando and Montgomery Clift have influenced his strong, fearless yet vulnerable demeanor both in person and on stage.
Giovanni James is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
