James Young – Frank Sinatra Impersonator
James Young is many things – a singer, a performer, a Frank Sinatra impersonator and even a former police detective. Whether you know him as a protector of the people or a stunning entertainer, there is always more to learn about his background, his passion and his enthusiasm on the stage.
From an early age people told James that his voice reminded them of iconic crooner, actor and performer Frank Sinatra. James Young certainly found the association intriguing, but it was hard to believe he would one day make it the basis of a successful career.
The thing that sets James Young apart from the many other impersonators in the area is his vocal range. James has the ability to capture the iconic voice of a young Frank Sinatra, but he also has the musical chops to perform as Sinatra in his later years.
This amazing vocal range allows James Young to perform the breadth and width of Frank Sinatra’s entire career, from his early days as a lounge singer to his later days as a beloved singer, actor and performer. Fans who have seen James Young perform often say that they watched the performer transform himself into Frank Sinatra – something few entertainers can pull off night after night.
Not only has James Young captured the music and singing style of the man known as the Chairman of the Board, but he has mastered his mannerisms as well. Anyone who saw Frank Sinatra perform in the flesh understands the importance of this mastery and how vital it is to putting on a great show. He has been a fan of the Chairman of the Board for decades, but his professional career as a Frank Sinatra impersonator is much shorter. James began performing as Sinatra back in 2004, but he has been making up for lost time since then.
