David James

Celebrating his highest charting single to date, the Top 15 hit “Sun Set On It”, award winning country artist David James (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada) lives by the motto “nothing worth having comes easy and opportunity looks a lot like hard work,” and work hard he does. Following his signing with MDM Recordings Inc., James celebrated a banner year in 2016 with the release of his debut EP “Songs About A Girl”, which garnered the Manitoba native two Canadian Country Music Association Award nominations including a nod in the “Rising Star” category. He made his debut performance at the highly celebrated Boots and Hearts Music Festival, received a Canadian Radio Music Award nomination for “Best New Group or Solo Artist: Country” and wrapped it all up by joining award winning country artist Chad Brownlee on the road before returning to the studio to begin working on a new EP.

In October of 2017 James released his sophomore album “Downtown Kids” and marked the release with a performance at Calgary’s Webber Academy Performing Arts Centre as part of the live music broadcast series Stampede City Sessions. Captured on film, the Stampede City Sessions episode featuring James debuted on PBS (KPBS) last fall to an audience of more than 2 million viewers. The brand new six-song EP showcases James’ melodic pop-rock infused country sensibilities and lyrically draws influence from both his personal and professional life. Previous singles “Later” and “What If I Don’t” hit the airwaves in early 2017, while James’ chart-topping single “Sun Set On It” was released to Country radio in October and quickly soared up the charts to become James’ most successful single at Canadian Country radio to date.

In 2018, James plans to continue bringing fans and the music industry many exciting moments.

It all begins with the release of the title track from his latest EP, the infectious fan favourite “Downtown Kids”.
