James Melton Signed Photo – COA JSAGo Back
James Melton (January 2, 1904 – April 21, 1961), a popular singer in the 1920s and early 1930s, later began a career as an operatic singer when tenor voices went out of style in popular music around 1932–35. His singing talent was similar to that of his contemporary Richard Crooks and baritones John Charles Thomas and Nelson Eddy who sang popular music but also had operatic careers. Melton usually catered to popular music fans, singing romantic songs and popular ballads in a sweet style. Melton also worked in dance bands, playing saxophone in a college jazz ensemble and performing with Francis Craig’s Orchestra in Atlanta in 1926.
Presented is a B/W 8×10 photo of James Melton. He signed it in blue ballpoint pen (“9”), “To Bill all the Best from James Melton”. Etched on the bottom corner of the photograph is “NY – 4 9 24″.
