*** DUO EVENT WITH SNOWHEEL SLIM ***

“A sassy and dynamic rockabilly singer, songwriter and guitarist, creating a national buzz with some slightly cheeky music and a captivating charisma fueled by her roaring voice and model beauty.” – Nick Krewen, Toronto Star

With her sultry and powerful voice, her sassy and commanding stage presence, and a repertoire that blends country, rock n’ roll and blues, Ginger St. James packs a lot of entertainment into her 5-foot frame.

Following the tradition of country songbirds like Loretta Lynn, Ginger writes and sings music from real experience; growing up on the family farm, being broke, having fun, and love gone wrong. Her early life in Binbrook, Ontario was heavily influenced by American southern culture, listening to country radio in the barn. Although trips with Dad to the vintage car and rockabilly shows had their impact, her signature song ‘Ramblin’ Country Bumpkin’, proves that this gal is more Hee Haw than Happy Days.

A born entertainer, St. James began writing songs and telling jokes at 3 years old. Inspired by watching musicals, cabaret and listening to Big Band 8 tracks at Nanny and Grandad’s, she enrolled in jazz and tap dance lessons, performed in school plays and spent a summer at the Theatre Aquarius acting camp. She began a successful career as a dancer, actress and model, driven by her natural charisma and passion for the stage.

Feeling the most “in her own skin” expressing herself musically, St. James began writing tongue-in-cheek songs that were entertaining lyrically as well and visually and musically. Focusing on singing and learning guitar licks, she eventually moved to Toronto to break into the local roots music scene. There she was contacted by guitarist Snowheel Slim, who became her songwriting partner and bandleader. St. James moved back to Hamilton where she has established a solid fan base, expanding her reach across Ontario and Eastern Canada with countless major festival, fair, theatre and headline appearances.

She released her first EP, Spank, Sparkle & Growl, which won Alt/Country Recording of the Year at the 2010 Hamilton Music Awards. Independent Canadian label Let’s Riot Music signed St. James in 2012 and released her follow up EP, Tease.

Apart from being a seasoned performer and emerging songwriter, St. James is also a brainy businesswoman and entrepreneur. She recently recorded 3 tunes for the HBO TV series Call Me Fitz. Classic Rock Magazine featured one of her songs ‘Please Mister Driver’ on their 2012 Young, Gifted & Blues compilation. Her “pedal to the metal” band has opened for Rockabilly legends like Robert Gordon, and Sleepy LaBeef, captivating audiences wherever they roam. Hamilton’s View Magazine named her ‘Best Female Artist’ for four consecutive years.

Ginger St. James and her band wrapped up 2014 with nearly 100 live performances behind them. This “chick from the sticks” won’t be taking any time to hang out in the barnyard in 2015 either, as she plans to tour across Canada & into Europe to support her debut full-length album, Diesel & Peas.

“If you haven’t seen this Hamilton singing sensation, its really time you did” – Graham Rockingham, The Hamilton Spectator.

“A sultry singer with a surprisingly lithe and powerful voice, razor wit and a vaudevillian sense of showmanship. It’s no put-on.” – Hamilton Magazine

“Diesel & Peas 9/10 – A definite contender for my album of the year and one foot tapping monster of a hit.” – Tony TC Corner, Firebrand Rock Radio UK

“Nothing I like better than someone that can sing and play the blues, with a bit of honky tonk/rockabilly tossed in. Diesel and Peas has it all. Her powerful voice can cover it all. You ain’t seen nothing yet from Ginger St. James. Bravo!” -Ted Michaels, CHML Radio

“She’s saucy. She’s slinky. And she’s sultry… She’s Ginger St. James. And when she sings you know you’re hearing something special” – Ken Wallis, 101.5 The Hawk FM
