Info zu Singing for My Supper

Wenn Dan Auerbach sich entscheidet, einen neuen Künstler auf seinem Label Easy Eye Sound unter Vertrag zu nehmen und obendrein dessen Album zu produzieren, ist das grundsätzlich ein gutes Zeichen. So auch beim jüngsten Neuzugang Early James.

Der aus US-Bundesstaat Alabama stammende Musiker veröffentlicht nun sein Debütalbum »Singing for My Supper« - 10 Songs, die vollblütigen Blues, sehnsuchtsvollen Folk und uralten Pop-Gesang bieten, getragen von der Stimme des Musikers, die von grummelbärtigen Rufen bis zu honigsüßem Flüstern reicht. James' Inspirationen reichen von Fiona Apple und Tom Waits bis zu den Schauerpoeten der Südstaaten, zu hören in den dunkleren Themen des Albums und im trockenen Humor, mit dem er über sie schreibt.

Dan Auerbach, der nur zwei Sekunden nach dem Ansehen eines Videos von James entschied, dass er das Debütalbum des Sängers zu produzieren hatte, sagt: »Manche Leute sind gute Sänger und andere sind mehr als gute Sänger; sie haben einfach diese großartige Form des Ausdrucks.«

Early James
an Alabama native and the latest signing to Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound roster, releases his debut album, Singing for My Supper, via Easy Eye and Nonesuch Records on March 13, 2020. The album spans hard-charging blues, wistful folk, and ages-old pop crooning, anchored by the singer's voice that oscillates from gravel-gruff shout to a honey-smooth whisper. James' inspirations run from Fiona Apple and Tom Waits to the Southern gothic poets, as heard in the album's darker themes and in the wry humor with which he writes about them.

Auerbach, who decided he needed to produce the singer's debut album after watching just two seconds of a video of James performing, says: "Some people are good singers, and some people are better than good singers; they just have this great form of expression."

Early James' debut features ten wide-ranging songs, co-produced by Auerbach and David "Fergie" Ferguson, is full of world-weary wisdom. "Blue Pill Blues" details a period when James, who was being treated for depression, quit his antipsychotic medication cold turkey. "High Horse" is a lament of the ways his adolescent excitement faded with the arrival of the vices of adulthood, while "Easter Eggs" finds the songwriter coming to terms with some of the darker sides of his heredity.

As soon as he was old enough, Early James moved from Troy to Birmingham, where he's become an integral part of the city's thriving music scene over the past half-decade. His diverse experience in the Birmingham scene has helped mold him into a singular talent whose sound remains uncategorizable. Mother Jones says, "Early James is the type of guy that might have walked into Sun Studios in the 1950s to record an unhinged rockabilly single with Sam Phillips … James sounds like an obscure, ribald 1920's crooner time-warped into a 1990s heavy-alternative band."

Coming out of a local music scene as first-rate as Birmingham has also helped sculpt James into a songwriter who obsesses over the craft and texture of every word he's ever sung. "Every line has to mean something to him, personally," says Auerbach. "It's not good enough to just write a good song, it needs to have a deeper meaning. He's unlike any person I've ever worked with. He's not writing a song to be universal; he's writing a song for him." Singing for My Supper is the thirteenth release on Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label, which is distributed by Auerbach's label Nonesuch Records. Easy Eye Sound is built equally around Auerbach's Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, where The Black Keys recorded their last three albums, as well as the collection of famous session musicians that have come to call the studio home. Subsequent releases have included records by Yola, Marcus King, Kendell Marvel, Leo Bud Welch, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, Shannon & The Clams, Shannon Shaw, Sonny Smith, Dee White, and Link Wray. Auerbach says, "Sometimes I feel I created my own Field of Dreams. I built the studio because I knew something was going to happen. I built it to accommodate live musicians playing, and then all of a sudden the best musicians in Nashville show up, and it's happening."
