YOUNG PERFORMER TO PARTICIPATE IN MICHELE CLARK’S SUNSET SESSIONS
San Diego, California – San Diego based singer-songwriter James Morris is a storyteller whose music and lyrics describe his everyday observations of life with raw, natural honesty. With the upcoming release of James’ new EP, SPEED OF DARK, produced by multi-platinum producer/composer Gardner Cole, you will get a glimpse into the soul of this 17 year-old high school student.
“What first attracted me to working with James is that he’s a great songwriter. There’s a craft to writing and he’s got it, he’s very talented for any age, but it’s really exciting that he’s only 17…He’s that good,” says Cole.
Charles Unger, the director of the James Morris music video had this to say about working with the young, talented musician; “when I first heard Speed of Dark it blew me away. The lyrics appealed to me visually as I immediately pictured James performing the song in the desert. I told James that his lyrics remind me very much of a poem I had written in my early twenties which, I thought covered similar ground. Speed of Dark is about a young man looking into his future, with hope and innocence. It’s the feeling that the world holds infinite possibilities. This song captures that youth and seals it in a bottle, which can be enjoyed forever. As much as this song speaks to me, I can see multiple interpretations that can apply to almost anyone. Our hope is that the video complimented the song in ways to broaden its lyrical meaning and enrich its musical appeal. Our whole crew had a great time making Speed of Dark and we hope you enjoy watching it.”
James will be releasing the EP concurrent with his performance at Michele Clark’s Sunset Sessions, an annual music-industry event. This year marks Sunset Sessions’ 15th anniversary edition and is being held Feb. 16-19 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, San Diego. In addition, Speed Of Dark will be featured on Lurssen Mastering’s website http://lurssenmastering.com/indie-music-resources
