James L. Hosay was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and raised in Norfolk, Virginia. After high school, he joined the United States Army as a trumpet player and graduated from the U.S. Armed Forces School of Music. After his first three year enlistment he landed a job as Music Copiest for the United States Army Band (Pershing's Own) in Washington, D.C. Having aspirations of becoming a professional composer and arranger, he used this time to develop his writing skills, and in 1981 he earned the position of Staff Arranger for the United States Army Band. During his tenure as Staff Arranger, James Hosay wrote arrangements for many well-known recording artists, including Patti LaBelle, Amy Grant, Reba McEntire, and Lee Greenwood. Quite often, his music was performed for U.S. and foreign dignitaries, foreign heads of State, and the President of the United States. He was called upon to write original music for numerous high-level events, such as the re-dedication ceremonies for the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capitol Building, and most recently for the ceremony celebrating the 50th Anniversary of NATO, which was attended by the heads of State of all NATO countries.

During his 20 year military career, James Hosay received two Meritorious Service Medals, two Army Commendation Medals, and a personal letter of commendation from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – General Colin Powell, after writing a special march for the General’s retirement ceremony. Now retired from the United States Army, James Hosay once again resides in his hometown of Norfolk, Virginia, as he begins his sixth year as an exclusive writer for Curnow Music Ppress.
