Welcome to the new home of David James in Boston!
My 15th album finally released.
The new album is called Cryptonaut. I wanted to make some high energy music that would excite the listener, and words that would cause the listener to think. That is my purpose in this crazy world. I played all the instruments and sang plenty of vocals…more than I usually do. You have to listen to an album more than once to really get it. I remember years ago, I bought Jethro Tull’s “Songs from the wood” album and was disappointed…I was going to throw it into the trash. I gave it a few more listens and now it’s still in my top ten albums of the world. Goes to show you that it takes time to understand an artist’s work. I think you will really enjoy this music, if you really listen to it, no matter what music you listen to now. My musicianship and vocal abilities are still improving. There’s a song on this album that is in 13/4 time signature and it’s called “a miracle rising”. I love odd time signatures and find them interesting. Most listeners today only understand 4/4 timing and they have trouble understanding anything else. It’s a shame.
My drum parts are very intricate, if I do say so myself. Drummers of all levels can learn from my experience and playing ability. After all, my best selling song is my drum solo from King Kong Blues Vol.2. I am old school trained and I love the music from the 50s-70s. It was an incredibly creative time and I still write in that fashion to this day. If you want real music from a seasoned musician, I’d say you’ve come to the right place.
Just a note: I invented the word Cryptonaut just for this album. Thanks for visiting the site. Oh, yes, I should mention that this album contains the song, “Paul is dead” which I wrote after doing a deep study into the myriad of amazing facts relating to the Paul is dead drama. If you haven’t looked into it, you should, because it is extremely interesting. Supposedly, Paul McCartney died in a car crash in 1966 on a Wednesday morning. I know quite a bit about the Beatles and I’d have to say it could very well be true. He was replaced by William Campbell, a look a like who had operations to look more like and replace the original Paul. He was called Faul or false Paul. In my song I sing, “Faul is falling”, so now you know what that’s about. It’s funny because the Beatles totally changed in 1967. They toured no more and they had facial hair etc. As far as I am concerned, there are several that play Paul McCartney and at least three that play John Lennon. This, of course, is true of other so-called stars and world leaders. Look into it for yourself and be amazed!
