In the fall of 2016 after seeing James perform with his band the James Clark
Institute (JCI) at a local Toronto club David was so impressed with James’
songwriting and level of musicianship that he approached James with the
idea of creating a musical duo with the idea of performing James’ great
original songs together. James agreed and after painstakingly trying to come
up with the perfect name the James Clark and David Hayes duo was born.
Established Toronto based singer/songwriter/musician James Clark
