Last call for all self-proclaimed hopeless romantics. Strap in and enjoy the journey. On today's agenda, we have the triumphant debut of Liverpool-based singer/songwriter Kris James. This self-titled album navigates through a first love experience, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
First up is the upbeat introductory 'Naive,' where James leaves the drama behind and announces 'he's fine on his own.' Moving on to 'Get Back To Love,' the singer taps into more of a funky, disco-inspired sound "about finding your absolutely true love. I thought after a while of writing deep and meaningful tracks, it was time to drop a fun and funky disco love song", James shares.
There is this indescribable pressure for any artist releasing their debut project to let the world know who they really are. Therefore you often come across diary-like lyrics such as 'Unhappy Anniversary.' This ballad finds Kris James vulnerable alongside Adele-like piano accompaniment. The album's closing track, 'One Last Picture,' evokes the same emotion, featuring more pop elements.
A few weeks ago, to celebrate the release of his self-titled album, Kris James took the stage at the Liverpool Hope Street Hotel and gave the performance of his career thus far. This album promises to have a song for you, and there is something for those going through a break-up, reminiscing over the good old days or celebrating the early days of being single.
