ROCK - Folk/Americana
James Gapinski plays contemporary folk and alternative rock on his acoustic guitar and harmonica. He was a guitarist for the punk band “Ugly Cousin” before they broke up in late 2004. While he currently plays more mellow acoustic rhythms, the lyrics draw heavily on his former punk influences, stressing social change and liberal politics—plus the occasional love song or non sequitur. James also works as a freelance writer in Milwaukee, and he keeps a blog at justsuppositions.wordpress.com. Sample songs can be heard at myspace.com/jamesgapinskimusic.
