Being back in the recording studio again has been a magical experience for him.
"There’s just something about putting on those 'cans' and singing into a big mic that gets the adrenaline pumping and the fingers flying!"
The song that James chose for this pre-release is “Songbird” which quickly became a favorite for the whole band. This song represents the other side of the story, the cry of the one left behind as the free spirit leaves for parts unknown. The upbeat melody creates the hope that someone somewhere loves them still.

Songs included on Rhyme & Season pay special homage to the resilience of the human spirit and hopefully will encourage all who hear it to reach out to those in need, whoever they might be. All the songs on this new album will celebrate the perpetual pilgrim in all of us while raising awareness about the different faces of the homeless.
National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is coming up November 14-22 and James hopes radio programmers and disc jockeys will give some airtime to this brand new release and help raise awareness about those living on the margins, especially during this season of giving.
