James Robinson

Robinson released two widely acclaimed independent CDs, his self-titled 1997 debut (which featured electric and steel string in addition to acoustic) and 2000's Tumbling Into The Sky.

In 2003, the year he originally released Colours independently, Robinson won San Francisco radio station KKSF's Bay Area Artist Contest. As a result, the album's opening track, flamenco flavored "Tales of Change," was featured on the KKSF CD Sampler for AIDS Relief, Volume 14.

As Robinson explains in his liner notes, Colours was written to celebrate the powerful influence that the culturally diverse San Francisco Bay Area has had on him and the development of his music. "All three of my albums have shown a certain eclectic approach, incorporating jazz and flamenco and a deep sense of improvisation.

The magnificent Colours points to a brilliant, sky's the limit future for a guitarist who will be conquering the instrumental world for years to come. "There's no one part of the journey that stands out, but it's the journey itself that has been the greatest blessing," Robinson says. "As my artistry has developed, I've gone deeper into my music and found new, fresh and creative ways to express how I see the world. Music has given so much back to me.
