WILKINSON JAMES have been performing their distinctive blend of blues, folk, and honky-tonk in and around the Twin Cities area since singer-songwriters Liz Wilkinson and AJ Scheiber first met up in 2008. A fan once described their original songs as “the bastard offspring of Townes Van Zandt and June Carter Cash.” Over time the simple folk duo evolved into a band, as the addition of a saxophonist and a dobro player expanded the Wilkinson James sound to include touches of swing, torch, and alt-country.  Their most recent record, “Abandon,” was released on St. Paul’s House of Mercy Recordings in Fall 2016 and features a moody collection of original songs that show the growing stylistic range of the group.
