KELLEY JAMES RELEASES NEW ALBUM: THE PATTERN TRANSCENDING

California singer-songwriter debuts newest full-length album

 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – National recording artist Kelley James released his newest album The Pattern Transcending today. The full-length album features twelve new tracks including the single “That’s My Girl.” A video preview is available on YouTube and the album can be purchased via iTunes.

 

James, a California native and lifelong musician, has created a signature style by combining the sounds of acoustic guitars and a traditional rock band ensemble with freestyle rapping and intricate vocal riffs. On The Pattern Transcending, he wanted to bring the best of both styles together as seamlessly as possible.

 

“If I had to describe the album in one word, it would be ‘mash-up’,” James said. “The drums and bass were all tracked live with the band in the studio. Everything was done in a pretty sparse way after that, at least in terms of overdubs. Using that approach to recording the instruments, I was really able to let my rock side come out. At the same time, I wanted the hip hop element to stay strong throughout the record, so we used some programmed drums and I threw in rap sections at certain points on the album.”

“Mash-up” describes more than just James’ fusing of genres, but applies to the writing and production process as well. While he believes that well-written music speaks for itself, he expressed no qualms about utilizing new technology in the process of creating the album.

 

“This album is the true progression of where my live sound and studio vibe meet,” James said. “The strongest songs still stand up with just a vocal and an acoustic guitar or piano, which is how I write most of the music. But, I have been writing a lot to different programmed beats and samples. There are so many things that I do now that weren’t possible ten years ago. Technology drives everything we do in life and music is no exception.”

 

James has built his career on the road playing over 750 shows in the past five years. As the creator of The Sorority and Fraternity Tour he has played at colleges nationwide and partnered with Oakley and Muscle Milk to sponsor the tour. He has shared the stage with acts such as LMFAO, Mike Posner, O.A.R., Kate Voegele and Joshua Radin and has opened shows at venues from House of Blues Chicago to Red Rocks. He has sold out shows at the Troubadour, Roxy and Key Club in Los Angeles, and has held a monthly residency at the W Hotel Scottsdale since 2009 garnering a strong fan base in the area.

KELLEY JAMES RELEASES NEW SINGLE “THAT’S MY GIRL”
California native showcases the first single off his newest album The Pattern Transcending

 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – National recording artist Kelley James released his newest single “That’s My Girl” yesterday. The track is the first featured single from his forthcoming album The Pattern Transcending. The album is set to be released October 1, 2013.

 

James brings his blend of California beach vibes and danceable hip hop rhythms to the first preview of the new LP. The song features James’ signature vocal riffs weaving in and out of funky guitar stylings to paint a picture of a girl that any man would be proud to show off to the world. Capturing both the playful and romantic elements of a relationship, James keeps the love song light-hearted and upbeat.

 

Even though James has always kept his signature sound at the heart of his music, he wasn’t afraid to go in new directions with his latest single. The song features 110 beats per minute – a rhythm more often found in hip hop and R&B tunes than in pop music.

 

“I played with some tempos that I haven’t explored yet on this track,” said James. “It’s always important to tell a story, too. That’s what keeps listeners interested after the first few bars draws them in. I wanted to show that you can write a love song and keep it fun.”

 

James has built his career on the road playing over 750 shows in the past five years. As the creator of The Sorority and Fraternity Tour he has played at colleges nationwide and partnered with Oakley and Muscle Milk to sponsor the tour. He has shared the stage with acts such as LMFAO, Mike Posner, O.A.R., Kate Voegele and Joshua Radin and has opened show at venues from House of Blues Chicago to Red Rocks.
