With a voice as smooth as silk, and poetic lyrics that dance enchantingly with lilting melodies, singer-songwriter James Madx is letting us know he is going to be providing us with songs to enrich our lives for years to come.
A recent guest on Alive with Clive, James, who is from Raleigh, North Carolina, and moved to New York City to fulfill one of his dreams, is in the midst of working on his next record to follow up on the release of his highly-acclaimed debut EP, City Love.
In two shows on Alive with Clive, James performed 5 of the 7 songs from City Love, as well as an uplifting single, “The Wonder.”
- “It’s Just Me”
- “It’s Hard”
- “Matters of the Heart”
- “The Wonder”
- “Night Sky”
- “City Love”
As noted in the introductory remarks on these two shows, James believes music allows us to escape reality, yet enables us to double-click and explore emotions deeply.
His music, though, is best described in this paragraph:
James Madx blends acoustic pop, folk and R&B genres to create his unique sound, and his songwriting reflects his ability to craft moving and evocative stories – dissecting varied emotions into beautifully heartfelt songs – creating space for fans to ruminate about life’s ups and downs.
Engaging, creative and percolating with wisdom, James is cultivating his love of poetry and literature to skillfully build a repertoire of songs you will want to hear often.
Through the fusion of the acoustic pop, folk and R&B genres, his songs reflect the influence of Ed Sheeran, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson, as well as, among others, Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, City and Colour and John Legend.
Be on the lookout for many more superb songs from James Madx!
And, in the meantime, enjoy his two shows on Alive with Clive.
