James Villa (a.k.a "Brizzleman") is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter from Portland, Oregon. His self-produced music is described as neo soul, Rnb, and synth funk. Influenced by the sounds around, both old and new, his style combines the echoes of yesterday’s soul singers, and the pulsing rhythms of today’s beats. His live sound consists of a 5 piece full band, featuring a funky rhythm section, and “Dick Champagne” on the saxophone.
Free Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Ambient Dirt Music quintet consisting of PDX musicians: David Barber, Miguel Hernandez, Jack Mortensen, Chang Park, and Lee Hauser.
