About Boney James

Born in 1961 in Lowell, Massachusetts, saxophonist Boney James began exploring his love of music at a young age. At only eight years old, James took up clarinet and then began playing saxophone when he was ten. While spending his formative years living in New Rochelle, New York, James was exposed to the music of Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, and saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr. He and his family then moved to Los Angeles when he was 14, and he went on to hone his skills while playing with a fusion band. James also was attending UCLA at this time, and eventually received his degree in history, but he pursued music fulltime after graduating.

After many years of touring with musical acts such as Morris Day, The Isley Brothers, Randy Crawford, Bobby Caldwell, and Teena Marie, he released his debut record in 1992 withTruston the independent record label Spindletop Records. AfterTrust's success, James was signed by Warner Bros. Records in 1994. He then went on to releaseSeduction,SweetThing, andBodyLanguage, all of which were certified Gold by the RIAA.

The album claimed the #5 spot on the Billboard Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart for an impressive 50 weeks, with eight straight weeks at #1, giving it an overall ranking of #2 for the year. "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight," was the hit song that led to James' Grammy Award nomination for Best Traditional R&B performance.

Boney James Trivia

How did Boney James get his stage name?

Born James Oppenheim, Boney James got his stage name when he started touring with musician Randy Crawford in 1986. When they were touring in Scandinavia, James had remarked to her that everything costs a fortune so he just wouldn't eat for the next couple of days. Crawford joked that he would get skinny and she would have to call him "Boney James." The nickname caught on, and it stuck ever since.
