After a successful release of “The Light” single, JAMES collaborates with SOOYOUNG from Girls’ Generation for an acoustic love track. “Let’s Get Away” is about the feeling of wanting to get away from the weight of the world with someone you love. It’s about a girl who can change your reality no matter what the circumstances are. She is the answer to all of your problems and when you’re with her it feels better than any painkiller can make you.

For this collaboration, JAMES explained that he is a fan and a friend of SOOYOUNG. He’s been wanting to work with her as she has a beautiful voice tone. “She has a purity and loveliness I thought would work well with my voice and the energy of this track. I sent her the acoustic track and she agreed right away to give it a try and we tracked her vocals very quickly. I found a talented acoustic guitarist on Instagram named Pat Falgate who played the guitar part beautifully. SOOYOUNG showed her professionalism when recording the vocals and the video.”

A debilitating accident resulted in his left hand being almost chopped off and reattached with minimal function, ending his career as a worldwide touring bassist. After 5 surgeries, JAMES moved back to LA and started a kick-starter project called ‘The LIGHT EP’ including music written post-accident detailing his journey since then. He considers music his rehabilitation and continues writing and creating as his passion.
JAMES previously released his first solo single entitled “The Light” where he wrote the track after his tragic accident. It’s an electronic mid-tempo song describing his journey from the darkness of depression to accepting God as his savior. It is an emotional cry for help and conversation with hope through the darkest time in his life.
