Author, actor, singer-songwriter - the only life for Adam-Michael James is a creative one. Writing song lyrics, working on a novel, and winning Drama awards in high school, AMJ went on to broadcasting school and amassed five years of radio experience, first as a deejay at Florida country station WDKC, then as writer, producer, and air talent for "IMRU", a weekly newsmagazine for KPFK in Los Angeles. AMJ's "IMRU" efforts earned him a Golden Mike Award for Best Entertainment Reporting.


AMJ's two published novels are "Undo the Deed," a time travel story with a child abuse theme, and "Extra Extra!: Memoirs from a Piece of Human Furniture," an anecdotal guide for background actors based on his own experiences in Hollywood. AMJ has also done script analysis for several Hollywood production companies, and he puts these skills to use writing opinion columns regularly for the soap opera web site, soapcentral.com.


Collaborating with Emmy-nominated composer Leo Marchildon, AMJ wrote the book and lyrics for "The Nine Lives of L.M. Montgomery", a multimedia musical drama based on the life of the famed "Anne of Green Gables" author. Other theatrical exploits include playing Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau in a workshop of "Trudeaumania", Pirelli in the ACT production of "Sweeney Todd", Philip in "Relatively Speaking" (also for ACT), and Lumiere in the Fandango Musical Players production of "Beauty and the Beast."


AMJ is also noted for his music videos "Extra Extra!", which brought his show biz book to life, and "Generation X (In Full Effect)", a love letter to the '80s that was recognized as one of Prince Edward Island's Top 10 short films at the 2012 Island Media Arts Festival. AMJ's newest video, "Change My Mind", will have its world premiere at the 2013 Island Media Arts Festival before being released on-line May 28. The "posi music" clip is a teaser for "School of Thought", a concept album about the law of attraction which AMJ is currently developing.
