"James takes the sound we love but don't hear enough and combines high energy with commercial elements"
- Ben Jones, Round Hill Music
Nashville-based singer/songwriter James Hatem seeks to inspire and connect listeners
with genuine, raw songwriting. Harboring a passion for guitar and honest storytelling from a
tender age, James completed an associate’s in Classical Guitar at County College of Morris and
soon achieved a bachelor’s in Music Education from Belmont University. Inspired by influences
John Mayer, The Beatles, Cream, and Jason Mraz, James strives to create compelling songs that
lead audiences on a musical journey of self-discovery. Since completing several nationwide tours
that included a performance at Philadelphia’s iconic Hard Rock Cafe, James most recently
released his acclaimed debut EP, The Giving Tree this past October.
