Slater was born in Durham, North Carolina, and raised in the tropics of the Panama Canal Zone in Central America. James lived in Zurich Switzerland for six years touring, recording and writing with Belgian super group Vaya Con Dios and has traveled the world from Panama to Dublin, from Spain to Havana. He and his grand piano now live in Nashville, Tennessee.

Willie Nelson’s “Life Is A Moment”, Tim McGraw’s recent first single…Looking for That Girl, Enrique Iglesias’ “Only A Woman” on his new Sex And Love C.D., Rascal Flatt’s “Life Is A Song” are all James’ compositions. His songs have been recorded by Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Kelly Pickler, Reba McEntire, Gloriana, Martina McBride, Enrique Iglesias, Chris Brown, Chris Young and a host of others. His Grammy nominations include Jamey Johnson’s “The High Cost of Living”, country song of the year, and for Martina’s “In My Daughter’s Eyes”.

You can hear one of Slater’s songs in the George Clooney Film “Tomorrowland”.

Martina’s recording of “In My Daughter’s Eyes” has become a modern day standard garnering Slater a BMI country award as well as a BMI pop award in 2006. James also co-wrote the winning “The Way That I Want You”, sung by Julio Iglesias Jr. on CMT’s Season 1“Gone Country” reality show as well as co-writing “Glorious Train” with Sheila E on Season 3, and his solo c.d. release “Key West Address” is a love letter to the island that reminds him so much of his tropical upbringing, so much so that the mayor of Key West has awarded Slater the “keys to the city” and proclaimed the song “Key West Address” the island’s official theme.

Seating for the show begins at 7:30, Show at 8:30, $12 cover charge.
