About Ro James:

Born in Stuttgart, Germany to a military father turned preacher, Ro James found himself moving around for most of his childhood. From Indiana, California, Hawaii, Oklahoma to the place he now calls home, New York, music was always in the forefront of James’ life. His musical inspirations come from the sounds of Johnny Cash, Prince, Tupac, Jodeci, and more. Since his emergence in 2013, Ro James has worked with the likes of Miguel, Snoop Dogg and Brenmar. That same year he also released an EP trilogy: Coke, Jack & Cadillacs, which received critical praise from outlets such as The FADER, The Source, VIBE, and HypeTrak. Noisey calls his music, “a subtle blend of smoothed out, soulful R&B…” and Billboard declares “James’ sound is reminiscent of the greats, think Prince meets D’Angelo…” Combining these influences with his journey, he has crafted his best work to date on ELDORADO. Released as a digital exclusive to Apple Music on May 27th, James’ debut album ELDORADO entered the charts at #3 on The Billboard R&B Albums Chart and #8 on the Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums Chart. With Ro’s soulful grit, impassioned vocals and clear vision as an artist, he is poised to be music’s next big breakout star.
