Jeffrey James Shares New EP ‘East London’

Today, Nashville-based singer/songwriter Jeffrey James is releasing his new EP, ‘East London.’ The 5-track EP includes previous singles “Downtown” and “Slow Right Down” alongside 3 brand new tracks. Drawing inspiration from various challenges he has faced in his life and relationship over the past few years, James embraces vulnerability with open arms on ‘East London‘; the 5-tracks mark some of James’ most visceral, raw songwriting to date.

The ‘East London’ EP was birthed during a month-long songwriting trip to London in early 2019. James worked with legendary engineer Geoff Swan (Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay) and producers Jackson Dimiglio-Wood (Shawn Mendes), Dan Weller (SikTh), and Dan McDougal (Liam Gallagher) to create a uniquely cross-Atlantic record that draws on James’ Nashville influences and combines them with the blue-eyed soul sounds that have been dominating the UK charts.

Making the ‘East London’ EP had a rejuvenating effect on my artistry,” James writes. “Something about the city of London and the people I was working with helped me find a clear, musical voice. It’s the most hopeful group of songs I’ve ever released. It’s music I’d want to listen to even if I didn’t write it. I’ve never been more excited to share a project with the world.”

Nashville-based, Indiana-born James first developed a love of melodies from his great-uncle who wrote the renowned Hal Leonard Guitar Method book. Over the past few years, James’ soul-infused alt-pop sound has been paving the way for Nashville’s pop scene, leading him to open for acts such as X-Ambassadors, Rachel Platten and Hanson, and perform at national music festivals like Firefly, Bonnaroo, and Forecastle. Alongside his own captivating releases — his Billboard-approved single “Saltwater,” his 2016 album Walls and his 2017 EP Unsaid — James has proved himself a versatile songwriter, collaborating with an array of acts like Megan Davies, Tungeaag & Raaban and LU2VYK.
