Featured Artists for April, 2013:
James Olin Oden started playing music about age 17, but it was not until he was 36 that he really began his musical career in earnest. It all started when he was was asked to play guitar for a single gig on Saint Patrick’s day. Once he discovered his knack for singing Irish music, his journey began as he started building his Irish and Scottish repertoire and developing his highly rhythmic style of guitar accompaniment. James has been making music with groups such as The Friendly Fiddlers, The Gypsy Rovers and The Irish Wolfhounds.
While still with the Irish Wolfhounds, James has recorded his own solo album, Samhain’s March: A Winter Journey. Samhain’s March was a seminal moment for James as it packaged in one album traditional music and original music spanning both Celtic and Americana styles.
James enjoys playing gig after gig, further refining his dynamic foot-stomping, heart moving performance.
Emily Ramser has been writing for as long as she can remember. She started out scribbling little fantasy tales about dogs on asteroids in an grade school creative writing class, but since then she has forayed into many different genres and publications. Primarily a poet, she also writes flash fiction and articles for Wake Forest-Rolesville High School’s “The Forest Fire”. As a senior in high school, Emily plans on attending Salem College next year to pursue a degree in Creative Writing.
