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 petite frame. Following the tradition of country songbirds like Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson, Ginger writes and sings music from real experience; growing up on the family farm, being broke, having fun, and love gone wrong. A born entertainer, St. James captivates audience everywhere she roams. Her tongue-in-cheek songs are as entertaining lyrically as they are visually and musically. She released her first EP, Spank, Sparkle & Growl, in 2010. Independent Canadian label Let’s Riot Music signed St. James in 2012 and released her follow up EP, Tease. Ginger St. James and her 5-piece band will wrap 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 and into the USA to coincide with the release of her debut full-length album Diesel and Peas.
