E James Paris (EJ)

Musician, Producer, songwriter

Raised in San Jose, CA., lived in Philomath, OR, Los Angeles, CA and Meridian, ID. I am a multi - instrumentalist, song writer and music producer who performs live and records in the studio. 

My latest projects involves a collaboration of musicians who record on my song releases to radio, downloads, stores and also featured in the music recorded for my music books I have also written and are sold on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

I have performed as a backing musician for The Coasters, part of a world tour with The Darrell Mansfield Band. PBS televised  John Denver tribute shows by backing the founding members of the New Christy Minstrels and all other acts. Also backed up Pearl Brick and Frank Castentte 

Producer of Christmas Around the World release of recorded music featuring Pat Boone, Freda Payne, Ambrosia, Dave Crosby, Bing Crosby's Grandson with fellow  producer and artist Michael Mickey Durio, (Motown), Paris5000 Music and Film.

Worked in production for The Grammys 51st & 52nd awards  and the Grammys MusiCares charities honoring Sir Paul McCartney and other honorees to raise funds to assist musicians in need. MusiCares helped me in the past and it is a very rewarding experience to be involved today by donating some of the proceeds from my music & music books sales.

I have also produced Dolph Lundgren's Shark Lake movie and other film projects and worked and trained under Mark D' Alessandro (Sly Stallone's stunt double in 28 of his movies), as a stunt man and as Mark's assistant stunt coordinator for a boxing movie.

I have written several music books, Jump Start Guitar - Arrangement method for songwriters, Jumpstart  Songwriter, A cat named Steve and a dog named Doug and others to be released.

I really enjoy inviting other musicians to record in person or remotely on my music projects and sitting in with bands. Take a listen to some of my songs, sign up on my mailing list or drop me a line to say "Hi" and ask me to check out your music.  

All the best, EJ
