At a young age Joshua "Phresh Money" James took a liking to music. You can say that he was pretty much born into the music culture. Phresh''s mother, Elizabeth James, came to the U.S. from Grenada around the age of 7. When she reached High School she joined a Steel Drum band by the name of Metro Steel Orchestra, ran by Glen Gabriel who graduated from the infamous Berkeley College of Music. When Elizabeth became pregnant with Phresh, her pregnancy did not hinder nor did it have any affect on her love for the music so she continued to play in the band during her pregnancy. Well after the birth of Phresh Elizabeth continued to play in the band. Now because finding a babysitter was not easy she would bring Phresh down to the Panyard, where rehearsal took place, and some of the lady band members would help look after him while she rehearsed. As Phresh grew a custom to being around the Panyard he also took a liking to the steel drums also know as the steel pan. As the years passed by Mr. Gabriel asked Phresh if he would like to play the steel pan and of course Phresh did not hesitate to say yes. During Phresh''s Junior High years as well as High School Phresh officially joined the band and was soon to become musically inclined. As he got older Phresh began to grow out of playing the steel drums and gravitated more towards Hip Hop and Rap music which eventually made him to pick up a pen and pad.
