James Madison Kim, the youngest member of the Kim musical family, was born in New York City. His musical life began at the age of three, when he began studying the piano with his mother Judith Jeon and father Paul Kim. James's musical versatility covers a wide range of styles and genres including classical, pop and jazz. As a result, it was a natural transition for James to later embrace another main instrument, the clarinet. However, it is the piano that has remained the closest to him.

Teaming up with his father and his brother Matthew, James is one-third of Paul Kim & Sons, the world's first and unique father-and-sons trio pianists. James has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and the Far East to great acclaim. He has also made numerous radio and television appearances including interviews broadcast on CNN, KBS, MBC, CBS, Arirang-TV, and an animated film documentary "Joyous Life: A Day in the Life of Paul Kim and Family." James has been featured in various newspapers and magazines including The International Herald Tribune and the performing arts magazine Auditorium. As an associate artist with the Music Angels International Foundation, Matthew has contributed many benefit performances worldwide.

After attending Stuyvesant High School in New York City, James graduated from Dartmouth College with a dual degree in Spanish and Environmental Studies. He is currently working at Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP in New York City.
