Brendan James latest EP, The Howl, finds the singer-songwriter steering into new territory, discovering the courage to release a brave new sound while staying respectful to his meaningful history and the depth of his lyrics and message. From the opening declaration of Bring My Love Home to its conclusion, it is clear James has outdone even his own expectations.
For those who have followed Brendan James from his 2008 major label debut to his current ranking among today's top troubadours; the journey has been a pretty remarkable one.
Born in New Hampshire, schooled in Chapel Hill, signed ...by Capitol Records by the age of 25, and road tested with over 1,000 shows to date, James' has certainly lived the troubadour life. His songs have landed spots on over 15 major television shows and feature films, as well as achieving the #1 Singer Songwriter spot on iTunes, multiple times. He has formed relationships with music legends Carly Simon and Cat Stevens, enjoyed on stage experiences with the likes of John Legend, John Mayer, and Paula Cole, and recently been asked to give a TedTalk on gun violence, love songs, and simpler societies.
Now, after 2 years of touring in support of his 2012 release, Simplify, James, embarks on a new sound altogether. His new EP, The Howl, set for release in the summer of 2015, is bigger, badder and dancier than anything he's attempted to date. In his words, The Howl' is "...a reflection of my years on the road, my dreams broken and reformed, and my growing addiction to the upbeat and the feel good." He chose the name after reading a review of his last album, in which he was described as an artist holding back a howl.
So howl he will do. Bigger songs, bigger shows, and bigger goals.The Howl is the bold next step in the evolution of an artist. The musical journey of Brendan James continues…
