James was born in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. He immigrated to New Zealand with his NZ born wife in 1981, and has been here ever since. During that time he has made a name for himself as a singer, actor, drummer, and occasional, record producer. His varied vocal styles cover a wide range of, Soul, Jazz, Smooth Jazz, and Blues, across to, Pop and Funk.

Over the years, James has recorded some of New Zealand’s most memorable television commercials, as a highly sought after session singer and voiceover artiste. He has toured both NZ, and Australia, as part of the ‘World Blues Revue’ featuring ‘Long John Baldry’ (Britain) ‘Robben Ford’ (USA) and James himself, along with the Rodger Fox big band! Plus James has toured with his own great bands over the years. He has worked with just about every top music producer in both countries, and has formed personal friendships with many of them. He was nominated twice in the “Most Promising Male Vocalist” categories at the NZ Music Awards.

Being a professional musician is Whetu (Chub) Koropao Renata’s life - he lives and breathes music, teaching daily as a Music Therapist and Facilitator. He also runs his own studio from home (Mauria mai Productions), and was lucky enough to be brought up around some of New Zealand’s best musicians, including his brother Tama (Herbs). He is always inspired by the energised creativity of music and believes it is the key to everyone's spiritual balance. He plays Taonga Puoro (traditional Maori musical instruments) with his good friend Hinewirangi Kohu Mogan and enjoys passing on this knowledge to whanau and friends.
