James Overton Headshot - Actor -

'Sup dork

My name is James Overton

Hey, thanks for reading this! I'm James, I use they/them pronouns, and despite being 6'6", I'm technically speaking one of the shortest in my family. I graduated from Bennington College in 2015 where I studied drama and music composition. Since then I've worked in NYC as an actor, composer and music director for several Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway Shakespeare Companies. I've recently graduated from the Atlantic Acting School's Full-Time Conservatory and teach Ukulele, Guitar and Songwriting with Tunelark! 

My favorite food is hot wings, my favorite Springsteen album is Magic, although his best one is The Rising. My go-to karaoke songs are Love Song by Sara Bareilles and Take Me Home (Country Roads) by John Denver. I get along well with ghosts, and while I am able to perform witchcraft I am not allowed to without my friend Miranda's permission.

Below are recordings from rehearsal rooms, apartments, and in one case a haunted mansion of some of the music I've made.
