spirational, uplifting, and old school are just a few of the words that describe the music ministry of James Bowman III.
Bowman, a product of Christian parents, is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He has survived a tumultuous childhood and gone from being homeless to acquiring a Master’s Degree. The intensity of his life experience is felt through his soulful sounds.
James Bowman III is no stranger to music. While attending college, he played drums and excess percussion with several national and international recording artists. Brian Mcknight, A Special Blend, Virtue, Mervyn Warren (formerly of Take 6) and Erik Essix, are among the many artists with whom Bowman has performed. He has also opened (on drums) for other artists such as Tramaine Hawkins, Edwin Hawkins, Commissioned, Be Be and Ce Ce Winans, Bobby Jones, Nicole C. Mullin, DC Talk, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Vicki Winans, Kirk Franklin, Roland Gresham as well as a host of others.
What would compel such an accomplished musician to delve into the realm of vocalization? Bowman’s answer would be, “... a call from God to exercise other gifts He has given me.” This young man possesses a smooth delivery that reminds us of crooners such as Nat King Cole while at the same time offering rhythmic vibes reminiscent of Earth, Wind & Fire.
Bowman’s goals are to continue to minister in song and deed and to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
