OLD JAMES is a newly formed power-trio from Canada. In the vein of 70’s Rock ‘N Roll when originality was king.
On August 25th 2017, OLD JAMES will release the physical version of their debut album Speak Volumes. The album is ten tracks of hard rock/metal that is both original yet familiar at the same time.
Don’t Put It On Me
Words As Weapons
Kill Off The Rose
OLD JAMES brings an unrivaled attitude in their intense live performance and their pounding live off the floor musicianship in the studio, which speaks the likes of early Sabbath/Deep Purple while crushing any “throwback” or “vintage” labels in its inimitable wake.
Lead vocalist Brian Stephenson, has earned his keep as a vocalist and bassist both separately in the music industry. Coupled together in OLD JAMES, with high range vocals and funky bass lines, Brian brings a fresh sound and image to the modern front man.
As fate would have it, younger Stephenson, Chris wraps up the rhythm section bringing the brother’s history of influences, such as Dime & Vinnie, Alex & Eddie, Max & Igor, Chris & Rich Robinson, to the table.
Sir Andy “T-Cat” Thompson completes the trio with his uncanny blues and rhythm guitar approach to contemporary rock ‘n roll. Having stuck by the brothers through thick and thin, without him, OLD JAMES would not have the sound or texture needed to be the future of rock ‘n roll.
2017 ushers in the SPEAK VOLUMES era, the band’s debut album. With memorable vocals, distorted tones, pure and honest lyrical themes and a kick ass live show full of power and passion OLD JAMES is ready to make the world its own.
