Hi Christian, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’ve been pretty busy but everything is going well! Thank you for having me back on.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Never Said Sorry”?
Never Said Sorry took a bit of time to develop. From the production to even the writing but what we accomplished was exactly what I’ve had in mind.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Everything about the song is personal, just based off past experiences that I’ve struggled with for awhile.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Definitely! I have a lot in mind for it.
How was the recording and writing process?
Hanging with Alex Arias and Jonas Petersen, LA based producer, and we just were messing around on the guitar. Once we captured something that felt right, we started writing about things that I have been feeling at that time and honestly things just flowed from there.
What role does Nashville play in your music?
Nashville’s just helped me escape from a familiar place back in Florida. It’s allowed me to grow more with my music and work with a lot of people in the industry as well as in life.
How does acting influences your music and the other way around?
Acting has always been apart of my life and has helped me get myself comfortable in front of a camera.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than in your own?
Yes, anytime I work with another artist for collaboration, I love to let them feel it out and just be themselves. I know when I personally write; I want to focus on something that’s real. So whatever is real for that artist, I tend to go along with what they feel.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes! My EP is in the works but you can expect more soon!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Not just yet but you can expect another single “There 4 U” to be the next off the EP 🙂
Any plans to hit the road?
Possibly, not to sure just yet!
What else is happening next in Christian James’ world?
I’m just really focused on releasing this EP and possibly touring off the material!
