Soulful electronic R&B artist Jarryd James began making waves in late 2014. As he struggled to focus on a blossoming music career while simultaneously being employed full-time as a youth worker, he began working with veteran producer Joel Little (Sam Smith, Lorde, Ellie Goulding) to create his first single, “Do You Remember”. In January 2015, the track debuted at number two on Australia’s pop chart. After touring both as a supporting act and as a headliner, James released his second single, “Give Me Something”, booked his first North American tour dates, and released his first album Thirty One. And just like that, he’s made it all the way to the Collective Arts Black Box to perform the two singles.
