SON OF JAMES
New EP out soon!
Son of James, a born and bred Vancouver Chinatown Rock band, blends the soulful sounds of rock and funk with the mystical sounds of Chinese Instrumentation. Like a big rig rolling down a dusty highway carrying a cargo full of silk, Son of James calls their sound “Chynatruckerfunk”. Shon Wong, performer known as Son of James, was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. At a young age growing up with a family of Chinese Opera actors and performers, music and art has always been a big part of his life. Shon would listen to classical Chinese music at home in their downtown family apartment. Down the halls, neighbours would blast Rock music heard easily through the walls, including music by Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Guns N Roses, and Van Halen. He would find himself back and forth between the musical environments, eager to catch the songs of the day from both home and hallways.
