James House:

Born and raised in Sacramento, James grew up in a musical family raising cattle and alfalfa during the day and jamming together on the front porch at night.  After migrating to LA James worked on many feature film soundtracks like "Teen Wolf" "Fire with Fire" Ishtar" and "Tin Cup'  and recorded a solo album for Atlantic Records that he says was a growing experience.  In 1988 after hearing some of the records coming out of the new country movement in Nashville, James decided to head east. Not long after the move, he was signed to MCA Records, where he began a string of chart hits like "Don't Quit Me Now" and "Hard Times for an Honest Man." A switch to Epic Nashville produced the critically-acclaimed Days Gone By album and yielded the hits "This Is Me Missing You," "Real Good Way to Wind Up Lonesome" and "Little By Little."

Eric Clapton said “I think this [music] is tremendous. I consider Danny a good friend and a great musician in the truest, old school country-rock style. There is just not enough of this kind of stuff around anymore.” Flower’s writing credits span several genres and his flexibility as a guitarist and wordsmith is well-known. With all this under his belt, Flowers still manages to maintain the poise and humility of a Zen master while tossing off riffs with incredible taste and feeling reminiscent of Ry Cooder’s gospel-like grooves with a slide guitar virtuosity and delicate upper-register vocal vibratos of David Lindley.

He has written for or played and recorded with the likes of Mick Fleetwood, Delbert McClinton, Christine McVie, Carlene Carter, Bob Welch, Richard Marx, Aussie superstar Jimmy Barnes, French rock legend Eddy Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt and Rod Stewart. Sharp has played on numerous studio albums, including two of his own, (Who Am I - MCA 1986) and (Walking All the Way – Wannaplay 2002). A number of his songs have been recorded, including the hits “Got a Hold on Me" and “Love Will Show Us How” by Christine McVie and "A Little Love" by Juice Newton. Sharp was chairman of the Williamson County Democratic Party for four years and is the current chair of the Tennessee Democratic County Chairs Association, an organization of party leaders from all 95 counties.                                                                 More: http://www.myspace.com/toddsharpmusic  http://www.toddsharp.com/index_frame.htm
