Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


With the release of his self titled album, Britton James brings an indie edge to a classic genre. Lush with addicting guitar hooks, soulful vocal melodies, and a refreshing rock attitude, the record hits the aesthetic of a 90's rock anthem. Though the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds it all together much like a concept album.  Most importantly, the record never loses touch with the emotional platform great songs are built from.

The first single, "Your Mistaken" is an up beat, catchy pop rock track with the touches of real deal classic rock running throughout its course.

"I wrote 'Your Mistaken' during a time of being exposed to new things and living in a different way. I was experimenting and trying to figure out the person I wanted to be. It was really a transitional phase of young adulthood. I found myself falling victim to cyclical patterns and being labelled as something I didn’t agree with by other people, so this song is about breaking out of my comfort zone, manning up, and proving to myself and others the true person I want to be." explains the songwriter of his single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the album, to get the full understanding of where Britton is coming from, it should be heard in it's entirety. Songs like "Ghost", an instant indie classic, touches on the singer songwriter side with a new form of power ballad all together.

"This is my debut album. I’ve recorded demos and individual tracks before but this is my first big release. As a solo acoustic artist, bringing my tunes into the studio then writing and producing really makes a big difference. There’s a drastic change hearing the way I originally write a song compared to the final product." says Britton of his album and evolution is songwriting.

Hailing form Washington CD, songwriter Britton James has been focusing on a career in performing, writing and recording his material. Having written and performed everything on his new release aside from drums, he has really honed in on his writing and has developed his sound into something all his own. A drummer by trade, Britton decided to pick up a guitar and after learning to play, began writing his original material on an acoustic where he builds the songs out at the studio.

The Britton James album was released in early October and the performer is already working on a full length album release for Fall of next year. After being able to see his debut album come to fruition, Britton is always writing and performing as he moves forward with his song writing.

As Britton himself put it, "Follow your passion and pursue it responsibly! I’m glad I’m taking my chances in the music industry and I hope to have some new listeners who enjoy my music!"
