James, frontman of Calgary's rock act reijo, as a solo performer brings raw energy and emotion to every note. A power singer, dynamic and thoughtful lyricist, makes seeing James an amazing experience.
James Reckseidler is the energetic and thoughtful lead singer and co-songwriter for the Calgary rock act reijo as well as a dynamic solo performer and writer. His sweeping melodies and both thoughtful and motivating, socially conscious lyrics make James a truly memorable musical experience. James has been playing and writing music for over 25 years, beginning writing and performing in the basement of small-town Central Alberta, through the 90's band 'The Rims' featuring Calgary icon Clinton St. John. His music is inspired by 80's rock, the 60's rock n roll with a hint of country. Part Bono, part John Lennon, and part Johnny Cash, James brings soul, a heart and meaning to the world of music.
