James Baley

Toronto’s James Baley is a Juno-winning music creator and multi-disciplinary artist whose radiant energy continues to establish him as a distinctive and magnetizing performer. Sharing compelling stories through his vulnerable lyrics, James combines his R&B, gospel, and electronic influences to create soulful reflections and exuberant dance tracks for the church, club and vogue ballroom.
Known in the ballroom community as Songbird Miyake-Mugler, James takes inspiration from his alternative aesthetic and joy of movement.

With the release of his debut LP, “A Story” in September 2021, Baley continues to center his creative communities and establish himself as a powerful and versatile songwriter. In 2021 Baley sold out his album release event at The Great Hall, was credited as a co-writer/ co-producer on July Talk’s Juno winning, Pray For It, and performed as direct support at their hometown date in December. 2022 will continue to have much in store for James including brand campaigns, a number of collaborative single releases, as well as community-driven special projects.
