Cee Cee James - photo by Greg JohnsonSouthern Oregon’s Cee Cee James’ lyrics are given from the fire of her Blood Red Blues when performing and they allow her to bring the marrow of her bones, and then lay bare her soul to her fans to whom she has become a voice for their need to be raw, real and touch openly into their own aching truth of struggle and love. In her performances she keeps her fans riveted as she gives every last ounce of energy she has and then some, working to make the meaning of the songs come alive, bringing the stories to life with her arsenal of vocal power tools. Grammy Award winning producer Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Santana, etc.) states: “Cee Cee James is one of the greatest blues rock singers out there today. She’s someone I call an ‘old soul.’  Cee Cee’s songs are wonderful stories of her life experiences, and backed by Rob’s strong Delta Roots/Blues Slide and Rhythm Guitar playing, they make a great team.  Her style reminds me of our classic early female blues and rock singers.  She’s very passionate about giving a great performance.”
