James spent 7 years serving his country as an Infantryman in the US Army, with marked deployment to Iraq in 2010. Looking for an outlet to pour his heart out, he picked up the guitar and began a self-taught journey into the world of music.
For James Garland, music is not just a hobby, it’s a passion. He has always loved music and has enjoyed creating new songs that people can relate to.
