As a musician, how you utilize the energy built up over the last year is key to your career growth. On our latest peek into the indie world we are checking out Songs I Found In The Year I Lost, the latest EP from Jeffrey James. Hailing from the great city of Nashville TN, Jeffrey James has been on the recent forefront to push the indie-pop scene to the forefront. Snagging millions of plays throughout his career so far, Jeffrey James has opened for the likes of X-Ambassadors and Hanson. Jeffrey James has even rocked the live stage, absolutely owning performances at Firefly, Bonnaroo, and Forecastle. This latest video rolls on out after Jeffrey’s latest appearance on Songland, where he had the chance to honor country legend Martina McBride with the original single “We Could Be Heroes” with Ryan Tedder.
“2020 by all accounts should have been a big year for me. I released my ‘East London’ EP and was featured on NBC’s Songland. However, instead of touring and promoting my new music, I (like everyone else) was forced to stay home with nothing to do but sit in my studio, work and think.” – Jeffrey James
When you have a backlog of songs that never saw the light of day, something needs to change. The latest drop from Jeffrey James’s camp, Songs I Found In The Year I Lost (now being called SIFNYIL) is a collection of previously unreleased singles, demos, and new collaborations that James has deemed ready for the masses. SIFNYIL showcases James’s range as a singer, songwriter, and storyteller, with each track expanding upon a core concept with its own narrative. James enhances each track with expert-level instrumentals, creating a larger-than-life cinematic feel to each one of his productions. Our favorite track from the EP, “We Could Be Heroes”, is one of his pre-pandemic tracks that earned its spot on SIFNYIL after receiving praise at Songland 2020. If you are in dire need of inspiration indie music, keep Jeffrey James on the top of your watchlist.
