Americana/Roots artist and multiple award winner Natasha James has been added to the quickly-growing lineup of top-name music acts donating their time and talent to the star-studded “Music For Veterans” Tour this Summer presented by respected Nashville agency, Graw Management & Entertainment, with whom James recently signed. More “Music For Veterans” Tour details to follow.
“The catchy “If You Think This Is Love,” “I Don’t Care” and “Somebody Just Blew It” provide further evidence of just what James can do, with a voice vaguely sometimes reminiscent of such country great as Loretta Lynn or blues babe Bonnie Raitt…” LOS ANGELES EXAMINER
“Natasha James is an American troubadour in the purest sense of the word. The Sonoma, California-based singer-songwriter emotes from her soul and approaches her material with an authenticity and grit that harbors no pretense or fabrication. She speaks the truth and her songs are vibrant and illustrious stories that are as compelling as those of Woody Guthrie, Lucinda Williams or Gram Parsons, of whom she is often compared.” MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE
James’ latest single “NASCAR Time,” is a timely Southern Rock anthem a la Lynyrd Skynyrd. “NASCAR Time” features Natasha James and Tommy Thompson (of the great Gregg Allman band) as a duet on vocals, with a driving Southern Rock track that is being considered for licensing abroad as a line dance single.
Both “NASCAR Time” and “Room 203” are available on an Advance Edition EP of My Country Has The Blues, available on CD Baby.
