WELCOME FRIENDS! Click on the pumpkin for a Hallows Eve Composition from me to you!

"Please allow me to introduce myself..."

My name is James Craig Wilson. This is my "ME ME page (lol)". I sing and play music (and I sometimes actually do some work) in the Cincinnati/Northern, KY and Indiana region , aka "The Midwest".

I am well versed in audio production and the recording arts. I am a keyboardist and vocalist and do technical support on keyboards and computers.

I perform with some wonderfully gifted and talented folks, thank you Lord! I am part of The Walton Gospel Group that ministers to nursing homes and I am actively pursuing my "Rehab Tour" performing for folks at rehab centers and nursing homes.

I hope you can come see me at one of my gigs! I get to play some nice places.

Do you have a favorite song or two? I might know them and I am thrilled to get to entertain you. I play Elton John, Billy Joel, John Mayer, James Taylor, Led Zep, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, gospel favorites and God Bless America etc... basically pop songs that you probably know and can sing along with. Let's have some fun. Life is short. Eat your dessert first!

I do shows for the USO, Wounded Warrior Project and many wonderful special events.

I have been truly blessed and I pray to share the love and joy as long as the Lord wills. Blessid be!

"What a long, strange trip it's been..."

I also do audio engineering and technical support for the entertainment arts. This includes programming synthesizers, writing technical articles and mostly helping artists not have to worry about all the high-tech gobble-de-gook so that the artist can concentrate on making great art!

I have done musician and engineering duties for R and B legend, Kenny Smith. I have worked as engineer for the gifted vocalist/percussionist/songwriter, Emmy nominated Patsy Meyer (Peabo Bryson, Patty Austin, Lamb and Meyer).

I have done work for The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, The Moscow Circus, Brady Seals and Little Texas, La Comedia Dinner Theatre, as well as countless others. I did archival and restoration of reel to reel tape (over 1000 reels so far) containing music beds for "As The World Turns", "Days of Our Lives", "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and many other national shows. Some of this material was from Emmy Award Winning Composer/Producer John Henry and Worldwide Music Services in Hollywood.

hotbutter-small.jpg.jpg I offer a transcription/archival/restoration service for reel tapes and even 4-track cassettes. Rates vary, call for a quote. If you have music stored on tape, I have some strong advice for you. DO NOT try to play it unless the tapes have been properly tested and restored. I offer this service at a very cost-effective rate. If tapes are not properly prepared, odds are the tape will be permanantly damaged and the playback device will need servicing!!! The reason is simply this -- the metal oxide in older tape is held to the mylar tape by a "binder" (glue). This binder, with age and humidity, gets sticky. When the tape moves across the parts of the playback device, the oxide and binder come off the tape. The metal oxide holds your music! I have thousands of hours of restoration experience of very valuable audio libraries.

"That's my story and I'm stickin' to it..."

I play all kinds of music. I call what I do "eclectic pop", and to me, that means songs that you probably know and sing-a-long with like Sinatra, Bennett, Dean Martin, Billy Joel, Elton John, James Taylor, John Mayer, Journey etc...

I even do a few songs in Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese. I love variety!

Do you have a request? I might know it!

"How Soon Is Now?"

Back in the 1980's...
here's a track that I did the vocals and music sequence for...

Bud Light Salutes

My brother Chris is now officially a "Real Man of Genius". Bud Light Salutes "Mr T-shirt Launcher Inventor". A few years ago, my brother and his team designed the T-shirt launcher that won first place in the Java 1 contest. You have to see it to believe it!

In the early 1980's I was in Bahrain (a Persian Gulf Island) performing at a 5-star hotel whilst Iran was bombing tankers about 100 miles away. Anyway, CNN used my band to open one of thier reports...
