James Unity Fuchs is a multi-faceted and prolific musician who has -- by nature’s compulsion -- dedicated his life to creating, expressing, and sharing his music. He has written over 100 original songs for his own performances and albums, numerous original compositions for concert and theatrical productions, and is also highly experienced in recording and engineering.
"I am a lifetime musician from a professional musical family whose own paid career began 33 years ago when I was a teenager. I have a current catalogue of over 100 original songs, all of which I have personally written, recorded, mixed, and engineered. I have toured with baby bands, as well as big names such as Macy Gray, and Jerry Cantrell. I am an expert level keyboard and guitar player, and proficient at bass guitar, trumpet, drums. I am also a composer with contemporary styles and interests. I am able reflect musical ideas from 200 years ago to present day and also create some new ones. My songs are partly about the human experience which ranges from the absurd to the apolitical and they are paradoxical and a bit tongue-in-cheek. I believe when you have the honor and privilege in a free society to make music and express yourself, there’s a responsibility beyond collecting a paycheck. It’s about having something to say, being meaningful, and knowing that my best self uses my art and creativity to help heal."
James is currently in the studio working on a new CD titled Baker's Dozen, which comprises 13 songs from his large catalogue of original music. The much-anticipated Baker's Dozen will drop in the 3rd quarter of 2017. While not in the studio, James is booked regularly as Musical Director, Pianist/Guitarist, and Solo Artist in the greater Los Angeles area.
