Meet Christopher James
Christopher James is a celebrated blues musician from Westminster, Maryland. If you’re into the local blues and jazz scene, you probably know his music well, and if you’re not, maybe you recognize his song, “Catch That Train”, from our Ting Westminster commercial, “A great town deserves great Internet”.
That’s one of the great things about James. He’s immersed in the music world. A teacher at Coffey Music on Main Street, a performer, a session artist and a touring member of various groups, James has made a solid, storied and successful career without having to leave home. At least, not for too long.
We’re proud to have the opportunity to connect with artists and musicians in our Ting Towns. When we make a commercial celebrating a town, we do our best to partner with local bands and artists. It’s more complicated than grabbing a track from a royalty-free music service but it supports local artists and personifies our local approach. It also gives us the chance to meet artists like James and to hear their stories. In short: worth it.
