RAVE REVIEWS FOR “ONE FOR THE MONEY”:

“With each release, the Hamilton singer gets more impressive.” – Bob Mersereau, Top 100 Canadian singles

“A terrific set of songs that will firmly cement her reputation as a rising star of Country music.  Highly recommended.” – Jeremy Rees, On The Air (UK)

“Ginger makes no bones about it. Shes a serious country singer, old style, and it’s great to know there are artists out there making “non pop” country…a surprisingly excellent release.” – Bman’s Blues Report

A concise little package of roots music choc-a-block with country, blues, surf, soul, rock ‘n’roll, and yes, rockabilly, influences. Either St. James has been very unlucky in her pursuit of romance, or she has an eye for detail: either way, her songs are well-crafted, multi-dimensional portraits of love and its vagaries.” – Fervor Coulee, Roots Music Opinion

The East Coast never disappoints and we raised hell higher than the tides in the bay of fundy this time around.  From boardwalks to bandstands, bars to back home, we really had a great time and one for the books.

Our chariot Cheryl never even flinched at the over 5,000 km trek in two weeks. We met some amazing folks, and reconnected with old friends.

The band was outstanding. A huge thank you to SnowHeel Slim who played the meanest guitar i’ve ever heard, Andre Tellier for providing the most dynamite back beat and to Mr. Rob foreman for killin’ it on the Doghouse bass like no other. An even bigger thank you to all the fans that supported us, the venues who put us up and the strangers who took us in!

See you next time xo

ginger st james hamilton music awardsHello June!

We’ve had a really exciting few weeks!  

We recorded the tracks for our next album over 4 days in May.  Big thanks to Snowheel Slim and his rad barn studio, and to Justine the “Bass Machine” Fischer, André Tellier, Chris Altmann, and producer James McKenty!  Can’t wait to share these songs with you!    We’ll be playing some new ones on tour, so I hope you can make it to one of our shows this summer.

It was an honour to win Female Vocalist of the Year at the Hamilton Music Awards.  Congrats to all the nomineees and winners!

I’m afraid to report that we will be increasing the thermometer, so for those who like to get sweaty, read on!
