James' father Ken posted a touching statement on his Facebook page.
Go rest high on that mountain. It is with unimaginable grief that Chris, Britanie, Jennifer and I must share the news of the passing of our son James. He loved to entertain, dreamed of a huge career, but he could not conquer his personal demons. He was loved by so many but felt so alone. I love you son. We were so proud of you. He will be missed by so many especially his little buddies Layla and Zofia
His band had the following to say on their Facebook page:
We (The Bareback Riders) are very sad to have to share this message but need to. James was a dear friend and band mate since he was 18. I simply can not find any words that can describe the loss we are all feeling.
