Influenced by the likes of John Coltrane, Billie Holliday and Marvin Gaye, José James is a singer from Minneapolis who defines himself as a baritone with a unique voice that blurs the boundaries between funk, soul, jazz and hip hop. He presents 'Love in a Time of Madness' (2016), an album that pays respects to the way certain artists do things, like John Legend and Frank Ocean, and strongly marked by social context.
