Driven by warm guitars, a climactic groove, and stadium-size beats, “Say Love” finds James’ voice teeming with intense energy, vulnerable emotion, and seismic soul. As he tells his fans, “‘Say Love’ is about the balance of excitement and patience when it comes to pursuing a new relationship. I cannot wait for the fans to hear this new song and the others to follow.”
James has been performing as main support for Andy Grammer’s The Good Parts Tour 2018, since the North American tour opened in San Francisco on March 14th. After a side trip around the Netherlands this weekend, James rejoins Grammer at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit on April 3rd for the final 9 cities, including such venues as Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club (April 10th), the Paradise in Boston (13th), and New York’s Irving Plaza (14th). The tour wraps up at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia (15th). Please see tour dates below.
On April 15, 2016, exactly two years before that Philly show, James dropped his 6-song debut EP on Island, First Impressions, containing “When You Love Someone.” The next day, James hit the road as sole support on Shawn Mendes’ Illuminate World Tour, the superstar’s sold-out 38-date tour across Europe and North America. (Prior to the tour, James opened Shawn’s sold-out headlining concert at New York’s Radio City Music Hall in March.) In January, James performed “When You Love Someone” on NBC’s The Today Show, and on NBC Universal’s Ellen; watch the latter performance HERE.
