Meet Oliver James! From Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee, the multi-instrumentalist James had been crafting mid 60s era soul gems with a Motor City vibe for years and has perfected his skills by traveling with his family band all through the USA. After hearing a few tracks, we began working with Oliver James to share these incredible blue-eyed soul tracks with the rest of the world. Indeed, Oliver James is a time machine player, fully embodying a moment in time when "You Left Me Alone" on the A-Side is a mid tempo jaunt that will remind listeners of the very best elements of any Funk Brothers production while remaining solidly unique in it's own right. Young Oliver James' heartfelt belting on this track will buckle knees with ease! The B-Side is home of the slow simmering "A Fool for You", a crooned ballad of fleeting love that is all too common in popular music. Yet, Oliver James' rendition of the this tried songwriting device stays fresh with it's earnest portrayal and spot on production value that is on par with some of the greats of yesteryear. If you are a fan of Northen Soul, look no further. Oliver James delivers!
