Canadian country artist David James is pleased to announce his brand new sophomore EP “Downtown Kids”, will be available everywhere October 20th via MDM Recordings Inc./Universal Music Canada. Produced by Dan Swinimer (Alee, JoJo Mason, Madeline Merlo), the six-song EP showcases James’ melodic pop-rock infused country sensibilities and lyrically draws influence from both his personal and professional life. Previous singles “Later” and “What If I Don’t” hit the airwaves earlier this year and James’ latest track “Sun Set On It” heads to Canadian country radio on October 20th.
Following his signing with MDM Recordings Inc., James celebrated a banner year in 2016 with the release of his debut EP “Songs About A Girl”, which garnered the Manitoba native two Canadian Country Music Association Award nominations including a nod in the “Rising Star” category. He made his debut performance at the highly celebrated Boots and Hearts Music Festival, received a Canadian Radio Music Award nomination for “Best New Group or Solo Artist: Country” and wrapped it all up by joining award winning label mate Chad Brownlee on the road before returning to the studio to begin working on the new EP.
On October 21st James will celebrate the release of “Downtown Kids” with a performance at Calgary’s Webber Academy Performing Arts Centre as part of the live music broadcast series Stampede City Sessions. Captured on film, the Stampede City Sessions episode featuring James will debut on PBS (KPBS) later this fall to an audience of more than 2 million viewers.
