The music sets you dreaming and transports you to a delightful Fontaine-tweaked wonderland - quirky, creepy, melancholy, hopeful, and happy all at once. Silly, very cool and shockingly earnest at the same time." Ron Norsworthy - The Norsworthy Fund Fontaine James is not from a musical family per se but his Dad sang a lot of Johnny Cash around the house and his Mom would hum along to Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66 while passing hors d'oeuvres at their soirees. It wasn’t long before Fontaine was standing in front of a mirror using a tennis racquet as a guitar. Also, He went to Catholic school where the nuns made him sing the soprano solos because he could hit the high notes.
They thought that was a hoot. Fontaine's radar is always up for a colorful anecdote or a slanted opinion. He will eavesdrop at a confessional for good material. Life is about the struggles and foibles of the hoi polloi - the skewed view of the quirky. Fontaine James aims to set these stories to music in praise of joie de vivre.
