Gravely James (aka Chris Madronich) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, guitarist and wild child born from the steel city of Hamilton and raised in Port Colborne. His involvement with music started from an early age by participating in musical theatre. Gravely James later would become a serious Trumpet player performing for many jazz bands in Niagara over a span of nine years. After a decade of self taught guitar routed in blues, rock and soul with the theoretical ear of a trumpet player, James has developed into a songwriter and a fearless performer known for his energetic persona. James’s style of writing is inspired by themes of travel, dreams, people watching and will almost always have an element of blues hiding somewhere in his charm.
