Born in Lowell, Massachusetts in the year 1961, James began playing the saxophone at the age of ten. He was greatly influenced by the saxophonist Grover Washington Junior. After his family moved to Los Angeles from New York, he became part of a fusion band which played the opening acts for Yellow Jackets and Flora Purim.
James enrolled in the UCLA and after graduation became a full time musician. In 1985, he went on tour with Morris Day as a keyboardist. However he convinced Morris that he should be on the Saxophone instead. His R&B influence can be attributed to the seven years he spent touring and as a session man for Bobby Caldwell, Randy Crawford, Isley Brothers and various others.
It was in 1986 that he got his name Boney James. He was born with the name of James Oppenheim. During the time he was on tour with Crawford, his per day income was only enough to help him feed himself. A keyboardist joked about his diminishing physique and said "We’ll have to start calling you Boney James" if he carried on his meager eating routine. Oppenheim then chose to keep Boney James as his stage name.
In 1992, James debuted with his album ‘Trust.’ The success of this album got him to be noticed by Warner Brothers. He signed up with them in 1994. It was following by his Gold certified albums ‘Sweet Thing,’ ‘Seduction’ and ‘Body Language.’
In 2003, James looked to expand his resume and took the role of a producer, for his CD ‘Pure.’ He signed up with Concord Records and achieved his highest Billboard pop chart position with ‘Shine.’ It ranked number forty four on the Billboard Top 200.
In 2010, while driving home from a concert, James car was crashed with that of a drunk driver. He suffered severe injuries that could have put a stop to his career. James had a fractured jaw and some broken teeth. He was away from the music scene for almost two months.
With great will and determination, James put the incident behind him and made a comeback with his album ‘Contact’ which he released in 2011. As the title suggests, it was influenced by the car accident that had a profound impact on his life. He signed again with Concord Records in 2012 and his latest album ‘The Beat’ saw release in 2013. It combines James’ love for Latin music and R&B.
The skilled saxophone player has amassed a lot of experience in his career. Playing as a guest musician on alto, soprano, tenor and the flute with different artists, he reflects their influence in his music. He has recorded with prominent contemporary R&B artists such as Anthony Hamilton, Angie Stone and Faith Evans.
Loose and funky, Boney knows just the right notes to hit in order to delight his audience. Be it the seductive notes while perched on a chair, or covers of groovy Stevie Wonders’ songs, with him on his knees; Boney is a crowd pleaser! Boney James Tickets should be bought, to see him speak his soul through the saxophone, with a touch of Latin.
