James Tate Wilson is back to deliver his new EP, Dancing on the Moon. The project is comprised of 3 songs, the title track Dancing on the Moon, Fade, and the stand-out record Hand in Hand. Though he hasn’t been a solo artist for long (mostly playing in Los Angeles bands for the past ten years), the man whose voice has been called “hauntingly beautiful” already has a growing, passionate following. As one fan commented, “I listen to James’ music every night before bed. It’s the only thing that calms me down.”
James Tate Wilson is a very down-to-earth artist and his music reflects that. James is not one to shy away from new experiences. Aside from performing with different bands, he worked in various areas of the entertainment industry. Wilson gained all this experience before eventually becoming a writer. Along with music, James writes books and screenplays and is currently working on publishing his first novel. His knack for writing not only serves as another area for Wilson to let his voice be heard but also elevates his songwriting.
James grew up in the deserts of Arizona and the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and was inspired by the old cowboy and folks songs he heard in these places, He loves how those songs tell a story, something to pass on to others, and this inspiration is reflected in Dancing on the Moon. When asked about his latest release, James said, “I wanted to create music that was just not for me, but for others going through similar experiences, and for the music to support us through those times, whether they be difficult or filled with joy.” Along with help from his producer Grant Carey, James Tate Wilson carefully crafted 3 records that listeners will be able to resonate with, while staying true to his identity as an artist.
