“Parachute” is the first new music from James since his last two singles “Love Me Bad” and “Stand Up” were released in 2011. “Love Me Bad” cracked the Top 30 at Hot AC/Top 40 radio while the anthemic NFL rock single “Stand Up” landed in the Top 20. “Stand Up” was an official NFL anthem used on jumbotrons nationwide during the NFL’s 2011-12 seasons. Both tracks were featured on his debut release Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster which debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Rock Album chart and #36 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart. MOAB has sold over 120,000 copies to date and was named one of Billboard’s Best Rock Albums of 2012.
“Parachute” showcases new territory for James leaning more on sing-a-long choruses with crisp pop-rock hooks while still letting his powerful and energetic voice shine. “Parachute was the 10th song I wrote for the new album and as soon as we finished in the studio I knew it had to be the first single. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it” said James. “Parachute” is available on iTunes now and will impact Hot AC & Top 40 radio in January 2014.2014 Tour DatesJanuary3 The Viper Room Los Angeles, CA7 Belly Up Tavern Solana Beach, CA8 Pub Rock Live Scottsdale, AZ10 HOB-Cambridge Room Dallas, TX11 The Station Bar & Grill Lafayette, LA12 HOB-Peacock Room Houston, TX14 The Parrish New Orleans, LA15 Wills Pub Orlando, FL17 Brewster’s megaplex Jacksonville, FL18 The Masquerade Atlanta, GA21 Ziggy’s Winston-Salem, NC22 Lincoln Theater Raleigh, NC23 Empire Springfield, VA24 I Play America Freehold, NJ26 The Note West Chester, PA29 The Hollow Albany, NY30 Marlin Room@ Webster Hall New York, NYFebruary4 The Rock Factory Akron, OH5 Agora Ballroom Cleveland, OH6 Thompson House Newport, KY7 Austin’s Libertyville, IL8 Another Hole in Wall Steger, IL9 7th St. Entry Minneapolis, MN12 Marquis Theatre Denver, CO15 The Catalyst Santa Cruz, CA
