Lone Wolf James started his music career in 1986 as a drummer. He then became a singer in 1989. He took vocal training under the tutelage of nationally known vocal coach Mark Baxter. Mark's student's consisted of such celebrity vocalists as Steven Tyler, Peter Wolf, and Gary Cherone.
In 1997 he became a Solo Artist/Songwriter donning his new name “Lone Wolf James.” LWJ developed his own style of Acoustic Hard Rock with a bluesy funk edge, releasing his debut CD, "PREY," on April Fool's Day 2000. “Prey” sold out. He received "Best Artist" and "Best Album Of The Year" and the "Elite Musician Award" in 2000/2001.
His second CD, "NATIVE GROOVE," was released in 2002. The Alternative News Magazine presented him the Award for "Best Male Vocalist of the Year.” LWJ was inducted into the Music Meter Hall of Fame, and placed first in the Emergenza National Festival & was endorsed by Milennia Guitars. He was hand-picked by Lil Stevie Van Zant (Bruce Springsteen Band) to perform at his Underground Garage Showcase in R.I. Lone Wolf James performed as part of the nonprofit A3D to raise money for Africa.
His third CD, "TRIBAL FUNK" was released in Sept. 2004. He then signed a five-month deal with Chromium Records of the UK in 2005. LWJ released a song that was cemented in the #4 slot for three straight months, and chosen to perform live by Talent Rock in Orlando, FL.
LWJ has opened in shows for many National Artists, such as The Southern Rock All-stars featuring members of Molly Hachet, BlackFoot, Thunder Foot, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jefferson Starship, and the world’s #1 Rolling Stones tribute band, The Blushing Brides.
Late 2009 LWJ hung up his acoustic guitar, deciding it was time to make some changes. In January 2010 LWJ teamed up with Fierce Horse Records. He reappeared in January of 2010 on fire sporting a Voodoo Les Paul, bringing a whole new sound to LWJ.
LWJ’s 4th CD, "VOODOO MOON," was released on Fierce Horse Records, December, 2010.
