“James has boldly displayed his talent as a songwriter, and solidified himself as someone to watch.” - Henry Solotaroff-Webber, The Deli Magazine

It all began for James A.M. Downes (Haunted Continents) just after the tour van crashed left him stranded three thousand miles from his quiet Connecticut home, forcing him to sell handmade demo tapes of his nostalgic indie/folk songs to strangers for loose change. He was only on this tour as a merch-seller-for-hire, a means for a shy singer-songwriter to share his acoustic music with the hardcore scene he grew up in. Little did he know that one of those poorly recorded tapes would end up in the hands of a music producer who, after falling for the songs’ quirky lyrics and relatable narrator persona, would record James’ first EP and encourage him to ditch the merch gig and step into his own. 

Emboldened by the support of his first producer, James hit the road after his first awkward year of college. Over the next fifteen years, he got his education on the road, touring relentlessly with his bands  Call It Arson  and The End of America (TEOA), sharing stages with artists like  Beck ,  John Paul White , and  Kimya Dawson , receiving radio support from over 300 stations like  KCRW ,  WXPN , and  WFUV. In the midst of the continuing whirlwind of live performances with  TEOA , James found time to release a series of monthly singles under the name  Haunted Continents , produced by Andy Seltzer ( Maggie Rogers, Chelsea Cutler, Samia ), playing shows with acts like  Lost Dog Street Band  and  Deer Tick.

While features in  Relix Magazine , premiers in  Under the Radar Magazine , and the nomination for  Deli Magazine NYC’s “Favorite Emerging Artist”  help circulate the recorded music, James continues to bring the live show all around the east coast. Whether performing as a yearning cello/guitar duet or leading a bruising and beautiful full band, most concertgoers would agree with The Deli’s Henry Solotaroff-Webber in saying that “James boldly [displays] his talent as a songwriter, and [solidifies] himself as someone to watch.” If you come out to a show, be sure to say hello - he still sells his own merch every night.
