Inspired by thoughtful and emotional contemporary songwriters, Connor Oberst, the Decemberists, and Ryan Adams, James tells his tales with poetic sincerity. James's style has been compared to the Eagles, the Band, Johhny Cash, and Bob Dylan. James Frederick, with his band, the Foxmen have shared the stage with the likes of the North and South Dakotas, the High Peaks Band, and Party Boat and have been featured on 97.7's Live at EXT, Crumbs Cafe, and Capital Underground.
