A singer-songwriter who accompanies himself on piano, James began writing the songs on his second album after winding up a year and a half on the road in support of his debut album The Day is Brave, which was released by Decca Records in June 2008 and debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, with Newsweek and Entertainment Weekly praising his debut effort. Several of its songs were featured on various television shows including Private Practice, Bones, So You Think You Can Dance, and Army Wives. After releasing the album, James hit the ground running to support it from coast to coast.
James initially toured regionally to support the album, headlining his own shows and also opening for artists such as Corinne Bailey Rae, John Legend, Susan Tedeschi, The Fray, and Robert Cray. At the end of 2008 James went on his first national tour, headlining on the MTV SoundTRACKER Tour. James's sophmore album, the self-titled Brendan James, was completed in 2010 released on September 7, 2010. The album debuted at #93 on the Billboard 200, making it more successful than his previous album. The album's single was "The Fall" and again a music video was made, this time featuring Melissa Ordway as the female lead. The song "Stupid For Your Love" was also available for free on James's website as part of the album promotion. Touring to support the album continued through 2010 and into early 2011, with a notable tour with musician Matt White.
In November 2011 James announced via his twitter account that he was planning on releasing a new album of 10 songs in February 2012.James's new album Hope in Transition will be released in the summer of 2012 via Rock Ridge Music.
