Jeremy "Brotha James" Reisig

XCHANGE Certified Practitioner

"When we connect the things we love with our talents and passions, we gain superpowers," says singer-songwriter, author, and inspirational speaker brotha James.

But it took the Elk Rapids, Michigan-based artist many years and travails to unlock his own potential. In his former life as Jeremy Reisig, he was a kitchen-knife salesman who occasionally pursued music. But when a string of musical projects imploded and Jeremy found himself a marginally-accomplished hype man and auxiliary percussionist without a gig, he bounded back and reinvented himself as brotha James.

brotha James shares his transformative message of positivity through a multi-tiered music platform. His robust offerings include club and festival appearances as a captivating performer with an exhilarating body of recorded work. brotha James is also a galvanizing speaker who can tailor appearances that mix inspirational speaking within a live concert setting. In addition, brotha James is an empathic facilitator and supervisor in corporate settings, fostering dialogue to help businesses improve interpersonal dynamics and productivity.

Though he's managed to do what few musicians do—turn his passion into a lucrative business—for brotha James, the real rewards are in the positive change he brings forth.
