Good music isn’t just one thing. San Diego-based songwriter James Frolio isn’t tethered by genre. Punk rock attitudes and hip hop back beats are contrasted with leafy acoustic melodies and personal growth. Somehow all these find some pop sensibility in James’s writing style. Fascinated by the creative process and the impact from inspiration, James has a knack for music that moves you.
Big Yen features a revolving line up of Frolio’s close friends and creative collaborators which allows for many different flavors and influences to color the music. The 2020 debut single, Backflip, was produced by John Shields of the rambunctious Hip Hip duo, Little Stranger.
