Chris James and The Showdowns are a band with a reputation for "keeping it real" and delivering unbridled original Roots-Rock-Americana music. Their live shows and new album are energetic as well as emotional, featuring well-crafted memorable songs, uplifting vocals, dance driven grooves, and tastefully brilliant guitar work.
--"Chris James' style of writing is hard to deny as it rings of times and life situations we can all relate to. It's nice to see an artist and band hold true to americana roots while still giving you a rock and roll kick in the ass!" -Starita (Music Producer, San Francisco)
