EARLY JAMES - "STRANGE TIMES TO BE ALIVE" (Released 19th August 2022)




//Easy Eye Sound/Concord//

£27.99 – 1xLP

The lyrical wordsmith conjures the ghosts of great southern gothic writers from Eudora Welty to William Faulkner, while channeling the haunted spirits of tom waits and Townes Van Zandt.

The album evokes a timeless amalgam of forsaken blues, wistful folk, and tin pan alley crooning, anchored by the singer’s unmistakable voice that sways from gravel-filled shouts to pained, forlorn whispers – and songs that tread in the waters of darkly themed broken hearts, with the wry humor of the sad clown.
