Nashville-based blues singer-songwriter, James House, blends the sounds of blues, Americana and rock to create tracks that highlight his songwriting and musical talents. James has written songs with Grammy nominated artist, Joe Bonamassa (including Bonamassa’s latest song “Redemption”) Beth Hart, Diamond Rio, Dwight Yoakum, Martina McBride, Rita Coolidge, Rod Stewart, The Beach Boys, Lisa Hartman, Fiona, and more.
His new album, James House and The Blues Cowboys, includes some of the best musicians with great pedigrees—Todd Sharp (Rod Stewart, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton), Mike Bradford (Uncle Kracker, Kid Rock), and Kenny Greenberg (Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Bob Seger) to assist with the recording process.
James House says, “The Blues is your soul crying out and stripped bare. There is also great joy in singing the blues and I want to share that feeling with blues fans everywhere.”
Rock and Blues Muse says, “The album starts out with the Swampy-tonk vibe and dirty slide guitar of “Jail House Blues.” This is the first hint that this collection is going to be driven, not just by House’s impeccable guitar skills, but by his expressive voice as well – a tool that most musicians known for their playing fail to develop so fully.”
