2020 International Blues Challenge Official Challenger, Memphis Tennessee - Road to Memphis Winner Grand River Blues Society.
With her sultry and powerful voice, her sassy and commanding stage presence, and a repertoire that blends blues, rockabilly and country, Ginger St. James stands out as one of Canada’s most exciting performers.
She is tough, raunchy, has an undercurrent of humor and speaks to the concerns of folks who drink, dance, work two jobs and need to unwind at the first possible opportunity. Songs of hard luck, hard love and hard drinking are delivered night after night channeling a wide swath of enduring musical influences, funneling them out in an intoxicating blend creating a sound all her own . At once the result is original, yet often as authentic as the source material.
Ginger St. James has been creating and performing music for over a decade on the Canadian Music Scene and this "chick from the sticks" isn't stopping anytime soon. A new album is in the works and will be released 2021 on Busted Flat Records
