Biography

James Hall is American rock singer and guitarist best known for his gothic-style lyrics, distinctive voice, eccentric behavior and eclectic compositions.

Early career:
Before launching his solo career in 1990, James Hall was the singer for Atlanta band, Mary My Hope, which released one full-length album entitled Museum in 1989 and one EP, 1990’s Suicide Kings, both on RCA/Silvertone.

Pleasure Club have since disbanded and Hall has returned to his solo work.
