It’s been years in the making and across the country and back….the New Chris James and The Showdowns album “Lucky Breaks” is finally here! Chris James and Starita started tracking on the record 3 years ago in a small studio in the Haight district of San Francisco with 2 mics and alot of heart. The songs have since traveled to Portland, Maine returning to SF to grace the walls of Faultline Studios, Freq Lab recording and Michael Romanowski Mastering.
The boys are releasing the record with great celebration the night before Thanksgiving, November 21st at Bottom Of The Hill. Be sure to come grab a copy and raise a drink to Rock and Roll!

Respected veteran singer songwriter of the San Francisco music scene Chris James along with his new band The Showdowns, have a reputation for enamoring audiences with rootsy rock n’ roll songs from the heart. The group is also recognized for their energized and compelling live show, which has no shortage of Telecaster twang and swirling B3 organ; recently headlining such San Francisco clubs as Slim’s, The Boom Boom Room, Hotel Utah, Brick and Mortar and others.
This upcoming live performance at Bottom of the Hill will no doubt harness even more energy and excitement than usual as the band can finally, after a year of hard work with some of the Bay Area’s finest engineers and producers at Faultline Studios, Coast Recorders, and Hyde St. Studios, celebrate the launch of their new CD: Lucky Breaks
