Taylor James releases ‘Good News’ official video

The singer and songwriter of rhythm and blues known as Taylor James has released the long-awaited official video for his latest hit single, “Good News.” The single itself is part of a 2014 series from James which has included his acclaimed “Olde School” LP, the “A Taylormade Christmas” seasonal EP, the “Say It’s Me / Living for You” single and instrumental version, and the “Good News” single and instrumental version. These have each been released in the winter 2014 season. Each of them has likewise been published on the Hearts of Gold Music record label. Spotless, jazzy, groovy, funky and full of the gospel tradition, Taylor James’ “Good News” video is one of the best-produced and performed videos to come from this decade so far.

Taylor James (born James Albert Taylor) has cited James Brown and Quincy Jones as main artistic influences, both of which feature prominently in his own style and panache in his “Good News” video. Having been quietly made available for viewing online in late September 2014, and with minimal marketing or advertisement, the “Good News” video by Taylor James has already garnered close to 200,000 well-deserved views.

A gleaming, sunlit video with an extremely high production value and cast of performers, “Good News” succeeds at completing several jobs. It is largely political in theme, while remaining a work of gospel music at its heart. It is uplifting, positive and encouraging, and even manages to be somewhat educational.

Taylor James was born in 1953 in Vicksburg, Mississippi. He is a graduate of Jackson State University with a degree in music and a minor in recording engineering. He has been writing, recording and producing music since the age of 17. James served as drummer and lead vocalist for Wynd Chymes, whose two LP albums are still in circulation online. His own first album, “No Way Out” appeared on the Great Southern Productions (GSP) music label in 1984. He wrote and produced music under GSP from 1976-1990, after which time he built his own studio and recorded such popular artists as Willie Clayton, Bobby Rush, the William Brothers and the Canton Spirituals.

The “Good News” official video by Taylor James is available online worldwide.

Taylor James releases instrumental version of new single ‘Good News’

R ‘n’ B and soul artist Taylor James has released an instrumental version of his latest single, “Good News.” Like the original version, it has been proudly published on the Hearts of Gold Music independent record label support from the corporate music power structure. Likewise brimming with elements of funk, soul, gospel and rhythm ‘n’ blues, James’ “Good News” instrumental brings together the best of the four styles of music for a rolling, jamming, grooving good time.

Taylor James (born James Albert Taylor) cites as main artistic influences Godfather of Soul James Brown and famous producer Quincy Jones. The core components of each of these are prominently featured in his “Good News” instrumental, and fans of R ‘n’ B, funk, and soul are sure to be equally enthusiastic for the return of good pop music upon first hearing the track.

The Hearts of Gold Music label have seen to it that James’ track features truly ingenious, spotlessly clean studio production. This, combined with naturally flowing songwriting and picture-perfect instrumentation, ensure that James’ “Good News” instrumental is a stunning listen from start to finish in an entirely different way from the original standard edit.

“Good News” and its accompanying instrumental version are the most significant releases from Taylor James in recent years. They have been published concurrently with an official, high-gloss music video, also. They represent the first of several tracks to be released from Taylor in late 2014, including such other titles as “Olde School,” “A Taylormade Christmas,” and “Say It’s Me / Living for You.” Each has been proudly produced and published by the Hearts of Gold Music label.

Taylor James releases new single ‘Good News’

The singer and songwriter of contemporary R ‘n’ B and soul known as Taylor James has released his latest single, “Good News.” It has been proudly published on the Hearts of Gold Music independent record label, entirely without financial or managerial support from the corporate music entities. Infused with elements of funk, soul, gospel and rhythm ‘n’ blues, “Good News” is a glorious modern iteration of the Motown sound as well as an upbeat musical push for better social values.

Taylor James (born James Albert Taylor) cites as main artistic influences Godfather of Soul James Brown and mastermind music mogul Quincy Jones. Taylor James’ own sound and style on “Good News” possesses many of the most important qualities of these. Perhaps most prominently, it exhibits the unstoppable funk and groove of James Brown, but also the razor-sharp songwriting and studio production of Quincy Jones. Lush, danceable and highly textured, “Good News” is easily one of the most powerful singles of 2014 to seamlessly blend no fewer than three genres of music, and indeed probably more.
