Vol. 2 Ep. 24 James Cohen

James Cohen is the founder and primary song writer of his band, James Cohen and the Prairie Roots Rockers who are a Winnipeg-based roots rock group and whose debut album was released in October 2011 on Soccermom Records / Warner Music Canada. Their self-titled album produced one single “So Long Sweet Deception” which charted for 16 weeks in early 2012 on the Mediabase

Canadian Active Rock Top 50 Chart

peaking at #32.

The song “These Long Nights” was

also featured in the movie soundtrack of “Gone Tomorrow” released in 2016. James graduated from the prestigious Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, California and spent years honing his guitar playing and song writing skills. After several demos and playing with various collections of skilled musicians, James achieved his dream of an album release on a record label after refusing to give up and keeping his eyes firmly on the goals he

had set.

Since the album release, James has performed with his band at Canadian Music Week, the 2015 Grey Cup Festival and is set to perform with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in 2021. The band also plans on releasing an EP later this year featuring several new original songs.
