Introspective lyricist encourages listeners to
consider a different perspective
MIAMI, FL – Adam James wants you to think about things differently … all things from relationships to politics to cultural influences and everything in between. His music is the kind of music intended to give listeners some deeper food for thought, and it’s that content-forward music that is grabbing the attention of new fans all over the South and in larger circles throughout the U.S.
Hailing from Miami, Florida, this introspective lyricist has been making a name for himself in Hip Hop circles around Miami for the better part of the past five years. In 2013, he dropped a mixtape called “Thru My Eyes” that was his announcement to the world. Shortly after that, he started his own independent recording label called House of M Music LLC and in 2018, he recorded his first EP “Temporarily Blinded” which featured singles such as the self-titled track “Temporarily Blinded,” produced by Nate Da Quiet Storm, “Pressure,” produced by Mike Anthem, and “Hollywood Afrikkanz,” produced by Drock. That project continues to making waves and James said he’s eager for an even wider audience to experience his music.
“It’s an EP that’s more lyrical than a lot of the music you hear today,” James said. “I just try to take a different lane and speak a little bit about political values and things that I’ve been through coming up as a man. To me it’s a lyrical project that reflects on things like the ups and downs of relationships or religion and various other things like that.”
The title track is perhaps the best example of the unique style of music James creates. Working off a sample of a speech from Malcolm X, the up-tempo vibe underscores lyrics that observe things through a different lens and looking at life with a different perspective.
“It’s about seeing the darkness before the light and recognizing it for what it is,” James said. “I’m talking about coming up in the music game and seeing different things and witnessing different artists and seeing how one artist goes one way and then changes and you can tell it’s not them anymore. It’s a song about sticking to a code and not ever changing just to be more popular or make more money. I want to be recognized more for my music than my antics. I’m speaking more for a lot of different artists who are so blind to so many different things and try so hard to get noticed that they lose themselves along the way. It doesn’t have to be that way. We can be ourselves without having to do ridiculous things and losing ourselves. So ultimately, this song is about recognizing those fads for what they are – temporary – and then coming back to our truest selves.”
James said he’s set to follow up that successful EP with another project that is in production right now called “Finally See.” He said it will be “a bit jazzier” than his previous work and will feature more samples and more live instrumentation.
