If you are looking for someone to play covers at your party, then I would respectfully ask that you look elsewhere.
If you are looking for something special for your exclusive private or corporate event, you have come to the right place. James is an original artist with world-class skills on 3 instruments and a multi-media presentation. The following is an excerpt from a review of a show last year in New Mexico:

Composer and performance artist 'James' (full name James Michael Gragert) is also a software expert and science-fiction author (pen name 'James M. Clarke' - search this name on Amazon to see some of his books). While in college, he was part of the vibrant music scene in Tempe, AZ, playing with the groups 'equation' and 'Paradise of Lies', among others. Since then, the reclusive artist has made only occasional public appearances while acting as a software consultant and writer. As of 2014, he is making music a full-time thing.

James uses his tech skills to create a unique sound and synchronized visual imagery. But what makes his shows exceptional are compelling, sophisticated compositions and knock-out skills on guitar, keyboard, bass, and a hauntingly smooth voice.

His composition style is unique and defies genre - touching on new-age, blues, jazz-fusion, classical. The only similar artist I can think of would be Enya. James has perfected a two-hands-on-the-fretboard guitar technique that is unlike any other I've seen. The result is a super-fast, legatto sound combined with great improv and feel. When he switches to keyboards, equally exceptional compositions and skills prevail. He also pulls-off solo compositions on the bass. Enhanced with electronics to make a full, rich sound, he turns the bass into a featured, solo instrument - playing chords with one hand and tapping melodic phrases with the other.

James lives in a cabin in a remote, Arizona mountain forest next to a river with his wife, Maria, who usually accompanies him on a few tunes toward the end of the show.
