Extraordinary! An extraordinarily talented writer with a real talent for poetic imagery. Impressive poetic lines, beautiful and original. Remarkable work!
- Judges’ Comments, Great American Song Contest
James’ poetry comes from a connection between the landscapes and the seasons of the northeast. The emotion and spirit of James’ music is touching.
- Jay Ungar, noted American fiddler, composer and folklorist
Hear Krueger’s crackling guitar and melodious voice awaken the beauty of a mountain.
- Poughkeepsie Journal
James Krueger is capable of surprising depth and control, bringing heartfelt appreciation to songs that celebrate the passing of the seasons and the sound of rain on a windowsill. But here are songs that probe beneath the surface of seemingly simple topics. If you’re game and looking for a new artist to champion as he finds his way, then Krueger would be a good choice.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll dance a jig if you feel the way I did upon hearing James Krueger’s new CD release, Fine. This CD is something you’ll put on and won’t take off. You’ll listen to some songs like “Shot Through” . . . over and over. He sounds like Phil Ochs with the added warmth of Willie Nelson. . . . Also look for shades of James Taylor. . . The music and lyrics on Fine reflect a deep, healthy connection with nature.

James Krueger has been described as a singer/songwriter. That label conjures a James Taylor-esque performer – just a singer with his guitar. But [the CD] Fine is a wonderful blend of Krueger’s delicate voice and a dazzling array of instruments. The album is smooth and rich like coffee with cream, with each song having unique characteristics. If you want a solid musical performance that perfectly blends instruments with vocals, Fine would certainly suffice.
