James Tomlin, also known by his stage name NOMALY (nom-uh-lee), is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, Model, Author, ghost writer, Actor, Comedian and Fashion Designer who has proven to be a modern day renaissance man. Early life James was born in Saint Louis, Missouri and was the child of singer, professional poet and painter Pandora Porchia. Comedy was natural for him as he was a born entertainer and would impersonate anyone on TV and he had it spot on. But the love of music was apparent when he'd often sing in private in his bedroom after hearing his mother practice with her band. In high school he would often sing in class or in talent shows and eventually started writing his own music. Today you can see his creative inspiration in all media and now in his very own shoe and clothing line.
