"...a spirit-lifting vibe with a retro feel and a modern heart." - Dallas News
The voice and songwriter of the successful indie music act Five Times August returns with a brand new sound on this debut EP from Music By Bradley James. Produced with Rob Arthur (keyboardist for Peter Frampton), this sweet bundle of tunes is laced throughout with beautiful orchestral arrangements, soulful group vocals, catchy trumpets and flugelhorn, deep upright bass, and a few bluesy electric guitar solos tossed in for good measure. Here you will find the classic influences of Nat King Cole, Etta James, and Sam Cooke fused inside a young modern songwriter. Though he's already drawing comparisons to the likes of Adele and Norah Jones, Bradley's approach and soundscape on "Where Did I Go?" is more likely to excite listeners who've grown weary of current trends on the radio. This is music for people who still buy records, who close their eyes to listen to a song, who are in search of something different and something honest. The best part? This is only the beginning for Music By Bradley James. So, put on those big headphones, turn it up, soak it in, and tune out.
