About James

James MacPherson is an award-winning singer/songwriter and accomplished musician, producer, publisher, and recording artist.  James is the co-founder/lead singer/guitarist in Bonsai Trees.

Bonsai Trees is an indie-alt-pop-punk band co-founded by James MacPherson and drummer Nick Sokol.  For more about Bonsai Trees, go to the official website:  bonsaitreesband.com or follow them on social media!

On October 20, 2017, Bonsai Trees will release their next full-length LP entitled “Not Bitter”.  James also plans to release a solo LP entitled “Ten Feet Closer” by the end of the year. These two releases were delayed due to a rigorous touring schedule (see “Performances” for details).  Bonsai Trees previously released the single “Lift Off” in September 2017, the single “You Owe Me” in April 2017, the single “CALM” in October 2016, an EP “Live Free and Die“ in 2015, the single “Hurricane Song” in 2015, and their critically acclaimed debut LP “Minimalist“ in 2013.

In addition to performing with Bonsai Trees, James recently toured the US and Canada with the NYC based indie-alt-pop-punk band Manic Pixi.  James is also an accomplished solo performer and award winning singer/songwriter currently recording his first official solo LP “Ten Feet Closer”.  James was honored to receive the 2016 New England RADAR Award for best singer/songwriter under 21 (sponsored by Pavoh.org).  Click to read the full Hartford Courant article.  

Singer/songwriter judge Sarah Barrios, also a Connecticut musician and past RADAR award winner, said she was “looking for a songwriter that not only brings presence, rawness and soul to their music, but also has interesting lyrics and interesting chord progressions — that’s a really important package. I thought James did a fantastic job encompassing all of that.”

James has performed at hundreds of shows either solo or with one of his bands, and has built up an impressive original song catalog.  All UPCOMING and PAST SHOWS are listed in: PERFORMANCES.  For the most up to date information, follow James on social media…
