James K (aka Jamie Krasner) is a New York-based musician and artist who has honed her peculiar aesthetic to include a fusion of visual and sonic elements. Deeply rooted in a conscious art practice and a mythology of her own, James K’s sound is equally organic and electronic. It is a layered genre-melting combination of odd dreams, enchanted samples, broken rhythms, and alluring, incomprehensible vocals that form a multi-faceted identity.
James K developed a critical multidisciplinary practice shaped by feminist theory and writing. She graduated the Rhode Island School of Design in Printmaking, and has since exhibited worldwide, at Stockholm then Malmö’s Loyal Gallery, Miami Art Basel, Frieze New York, and LA Art Contemporary. She has released her music with labels PAN, Dial, 1080p, UNO NYC, and her own label, She Rocks!, and collaborated with artists Drew Mcdowall, Yves Tumor, Mykki Blanco, and Gobby as their band SETH.
