After an extensive performance schedule across the Northeast, Shayfer James will be giving a devastating performance at AE District Gallery as a part of Art Basel Miami on Friday, December 3nd from 9:00pm – 10:00pm at 3852 North Miami Avenue, Miami, FL as part if “AE’s Music Inspires…The New American” exhibit.

His latest album, The Owl & The Elephant, is currently being played on over 40 radio stations across the country.

When Shayfer James approaches the piano, there is a certain power and mischievous charm that surrounds him. A bewitching sense of foreboding builds as his fingers touch the piano, and as he begins to sing, his wry poetry and stunningly diverse vocal range stitch us seamlessly into peculiar arrangements that are simultaneously thrilling and strangely familiar.

Mr. James lures us into a devious world where the gods tear wings from angels and every man has a siren waiting to devour him.

“Music Inspires… is an exhibition and pop-up shop dedicated to examining the intimate relationship that exists between Music and (The New American) artists from three diverse mediums. Our goal is to expose the dynamic of how music shapes and inspires the creative process of the New American artist.
