Bed-headed pop songstress, james., lures listeners with sultry vocals, evocative lyrics, and groovy guitar hooks while dancing around the edge of dreamy nostalgia and modern attitude with a bite.
On 10/14/17 james. released her debut single “Good Distraction” along with an official music video. The single is a fresh twist on the independent female pop artist sound that is reminiscent of 80’s dance music while drawing influence from modern artists such as Drake, Lorde, Lianne La Havas, and Tori Kelly. But of course with the familiar tones of of modern pop, James add a sparkle to the tune with traditional African-drum rhythms inspired by her travels and love of hand percussion. The song is “heart-ache you can dance to.”
