With beginnings in the mid-nineties, this Providence-based artist got his start in acid house, later moving to drum n´bass and experimental electronic music. James, along with two other members of Rebelmedia Recordings, made up Mysticism & Logic, playing the east coast and headlining venues such as the Earth Day Fest at the Lewiston Civic Center in Maine and The Rinse in Boston, Massachusetts.
In the winter of 2001, Rebelmedia Recordings built a live/work studio in New Hampshire and began work on a follow up for Mysticism & Logic's well received debut. Early in the process, the group suffered serious legal and financial setback, disbanding Mysticism & Logic and ultimately leaving James the time and opportunity to devote to a new genre-bending solo project.
Ted James began the initial production and performance of his techno-savvy laptop rock in 2002. Calling on his many influences, he paired acoustic guitars and vintage drum boxes with original vocals and lyrics. Out of the woods, James returned to Providence with a new sound. His debut EP was released on Cozy Music in June of 2007. For more information visit his main siteTed James (dot info) and blog, Better Off Ted.
