About Kane James

Kane James, a rising star in the world of underground hip-hop, was born in 1992 in the small town of Kirksville, MO. He is an accomplished music producer and artist starting to carve his name permanently into the industry. He is currently independently running and managing his own label, Studio Geek Entertainment, which was founded officially in 2015, before the release of his first album, Point of Purchase. 

Kane first started pursuing an interest in hip-hop at the age of 17, using a standard computer mic and a built-in recording program on the computer. He eventually went on to get his first CD pressed and sold only a limited number of physical copies. This was only the beginning of his skill and talent which has continued to exceed any expectation throughout the years to follow. At 18 years old, after partnering with local talent group Sashay Productions, Kane would begin his journey by releasing mixtape after mixtape while touring around the midwest with other artists as well as solo. 

After gaining some fans and some experience Kane James would then go on to begin what would eventually be Studio Geek Entertainment. Shortly after, he would meet Nate Bullman (stage name: Charlie Able.) The two shared similar vision and interests both inside and outside of music and decided to partner together to officially form Studio Geek. After releasing several mixtapes using a Studio Geek Entertainment logo, Kane James crossed paths with childhood friend Jordan Easley who had taken interest in producing. This would turn out to be a critical part of what Studio Geek has accomplished today. Shortly after this, Not Only Street Records would extend a contract offer to Kane James who accepted the two year, two album deal. A young and naive Kane began to regret his decision and after months of debating, cut ties and waited for the contract to expire before releasing any material commercially. After Studio Geek took up a new home, in St. Joseph, MO, Kane James went on to headline his first solo tour across parts of the midwest, as well as a co-headlined tour across Colorado sharing the stage with Eternal of the Wu-Tang Killa Beez. 

After the tours Studio Geek would eventually split-up, leaving only Kane James and Jordan Easley. From this point, Kane James would release his first album Point of Purchase, and has since also released his second and third albums, Forevermore the King and the Sound of Proximity, and most recently The Side Effects of Dreaming. He has toured alone and has shared the stage with a large list of artists such as: Yella Mac, Eternal of Wu-Tang West Coast Killa Beez, Spaide Ripper, Boombox Bullies, Dirte Cefus, J-Burden, Phil Sheurman, Murphy Lee of St. Lunatics, and many more. He has featured songs with some listed above, as well as, Dubbs, MotionPlus, Demrick, Waka Flocka Flame, Alicia Renee, Breana Martin, and more.
