James “Wick” Wickline picked up the guitar at the age of 14 and switched from lead guitar to bass when his band needed a bass player.
Playing bass is Wick's true calling and allowed him to play in a variety of bands including funky and hard rock groups like Backseat Romeo, The Shake Doctors, Far From Nowhere, An Issue Alive, Not Without Honor, The Johnny Dollar Band, and most recently, The Bi-Polar Express.
Wick has extensive experience in the recording studio and a honed ear for production and detail. Wick’s wide understanding of music genres and how they relate to one another is one of his greatest strengths as a musician.
The passion that first started at 14 still fuels him to this day.
