Hi Christian, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey guys, I have been doing great! Lots of crazy things going on right now.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Fall”?
This song is me showing who I am in a relationship. I’m not that typical flaky guy who will let you down. When I’m in a relationship I’m in it. I won’t let the girl fall. I think that is an important message to put out there.
Did any event in particular inspire you to record this song?
I was offered this piece right after I did my first single Give Him Up, and I really connected to it. However, later that night the producers put me in the studio I was in no way prepared. The producers tore me up. They even questioned whether or not it was my dream to do this. The experience nearly broke me but I rose above it and I began to develop as an artist. Coming back to this piece and laying down in the studio with a new team was my way of overcoming those who didn’t believe. This song is the beginning of a brand new series of music from me that I’m really excited about.
How was the filming experience?
I had a blast filming this music video. It was supposed to be a two day shoot but after a hard-drive crashed we had to reshoot a few of the outdoor scenes. My favorite part of this shoot was working on a custom two level stage with the full production crew. The stage took up most of the space and left just enough room for the camera and production crew to work. I loved dancing with all those lights. It was kinda trippy. The outdoor scenes were brutally hot but the locations were really cool. We were at an abandon helicopter pad and old train tracks.
How was the recording process?
I went into the studio the night I laid it down thinking that I would just bust out a demo. However, I got into the session and just really felt it and I ended up laying down the final vocal track that night. We still had to mix it but the main vocals were laid down right there. It really was unexpected, but really cool.
Does the new single mean we can expect new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes! I am actually working on a new EP and that will be coming really soon.
Any tentative release date or title in mind for the new material?
It will be coming out at the end of the summer the official title is still TBD.
Any plans to hit the road?
Not Yet. I will be working on building two EPs for the next few months. But after that who knows!
What else is happening next in Christian James’ world?
My world right now is consumed with studio time and writing. I am focusing on getting the next sound of my EP’s just right. I want to really dial in this next sound and really work the message I am trying to deliver. I want this EP to really impact people. There is a lot of really exciting things in the works and I can not wait to get them out for my fans to hear them.
