Rory Van James

After years of traveling the country as a professional baseball player, Rory Van James decided to shift gears and begin a musical career. That journey included his time as a student at the University of Minnesota Duluth circa 2008 to 2010. In recent years, James has lived in Seattle, but in the months leading up to Homegrown he was shopping for a house, with plans to return to Duluth. He has a modern acoustic folk sound with thoughtful lyrics that bring out the well-traveled nature of the artist.
