Van Sessions 2.1 - James Junius
Van Sessions returns for Season 2 with James Junius.
Before heading off to Austin, Texas, to record his first official debut with Austin City Limits and GRAMMYs producer, Terry Lickona, James Junius performed in The Banyan Collective's TanVan opening Season 2 of Van Sessions. James told us he's excited to bring "Utah-ness" to the Austin scene. He also plans to meet up with previous Ogdenite, Sammy Brue soon in Nashville.
James' work combines subtle honesty, ambient inspiration, and religious and social commentary. Driven from his experience working two summers in Glacier National Park contrasted with living in distressed housing in Ephraim, Utah, James is looking forward to his move to Austin in pursuit of his dreams.
