Growing up in Montreal with her Italian father and British mother, Bianca idealized the glamour of the Italian and French Riviera and the swinging rock ‘n’ roll scene of 1960s London. Immersed in classic records on the family turntable, she honed her voice, paving the way for her captivating artistry today.

Bianca’s pursuit of dreams involves refusing to settle for mediocrity, a theme that resonates in the urgent yet contemplative ‘Black & Blue.’ It’s a song about drawing lines and setting boundaries, even if it means walking away. In contrast, the poignant ballad ‘Till I Remember’ delves into finding the strength to let go, earning well-deserved spots in Apple Music’s prestigious playlists.

As a record that blends influences from LA, Toronto, and the UK’s iconic Konk Studios, Bianca’s album, expertly produced by Rob Kleiner and Thomas McKay, employs a time-tested approach – recording with live musicians.

For Bianca, real instruments and musicians create timeless music, a sentiment inspired by the works of Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Mark Ronson.

Indeed, timeless aptly describes Bianca’s contemporary twist on a classic, international sound, fusing American and British 1960s styles with elements of Motown, Soul, and modern pop. Her glamorous approach exudes integrity, poise, and grace, proving that grit, ambition, and determination, much like the blend of old and new in her music, never go out of style.

At the core of the album’s universal appeal lies Bianca’s awe-inspiring voice, masterful songwriting, and unwavering commitment to her dream. The culmination of hard work, travel, and embracing every experience as creative fuel, the album resonates with depth and nuance in tracks like ‘Inside Out,’ inspired by Diana Ross, and the triumphant ‘Made To Love,’ transforming pain and struggle into something beautiful and cathartic.

Bianca’s soul longs for authenticity, and her album reflects a nostalgic, dreamy quality that encourages listeners to pursue their own dreams. She’s a North American girl with a British and European dream, and her music moves people to chase their passions with unyielding determination.

In no uncertain terms, Bianca James is the real deal – a genuine powerhouse of a vocalist and songwriter, driven by passion and a desire to empower others. Her album stands as a testament to her artistry, and with each track, she captivates audiences, leaving an indelible mark on the world of music.
