Album: ‘DOWNTOWN KIDS’ Digital EP OUT NOW
ONE TO WATCH! CANADIAN RISING STAR
David James “Downtown Kids”
David James is a rising star on the Canadian country music scene. The Manitoba native had a very successful 2016, following his signing with MDM Recordings Inc. That year included the release of his debut EP “Songs About A Girl”, which was recognized with two Canadian Country Music Association Award nominations, including one in the “Rising Star” category.
In Canada, ‘Downtown Kids’, his sophomore EP was released in late 2017. It spawned a Top 10 Canadian hit, ‘Sun Set On It’ and the latest single and title track is making waves with airplay and streams on the increase. In Australia, the EP is available now digitally and “Downtown Kids” (the single) is at media.
This tune is about remembering the good times of growing up and the unconstrained fun that was had. It’s about the effervescence of youth and what comes along with that – being “rebels in a small town, hands up, windows down.”
Known for his charming sense of humour, like many artists, music and songwriting has always been in David’s soul. He jokes his career path was clearly defined,
“when at age 14, following my impassioned performance of Aerosmith’s ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing’, I came in almost dead last and lost my junior high school Canadian Idol. I knew then that music must be my destiny!!”
Signed to award-winning Canadian country music label MDM Recordings Inc., David describes his sound as melodic pop-rock influenced country.
