From the moment i started following news about James and his musical endeavours, I knew that there was something special about this singer. His success story is indeed similar to that of One Million Star winner Anthony Neely, with both singers' being known for their unique and emotive vocals. But unlike Anthony, James from the word go seems to know exactly what he wants and how to get there. His debut album <Stay> is truly a reflection of that, a collection of independent rock-styled covers that are a match made in heaven for his husky vocals. I guess what makes this album stand out from the rest for me was the sureness that I could see in James' musical direction from the start to the finish of the album. Through his music shines the soul of a true rocker, the attitude, the snarl, he's got it all down pat while sending shivers down your spine with the nuances within his heady and deliciously rough vocals.
