The musician and songwriter known as Taylor James has released his latest official video, “Say It’s Me / Living for You.” The video has been released worldwide as one of the most anxiously awaited videos of Q1 2015.

Taylor James (not to be confused to be with James Taylor) is a singer of soul and R ‘n’ B music best known for his signature blend of James Brown and Quincy Jones. James’ style is bass-driven and full of funk, retaining the best qualities of soul and rhythm-n-blues from the ’70s and ’80s while simultaneously adding his own attributes for a contemporary edge. Unlike much of the pop music churned out by the corporate music machine in the modern era, music by Taylor James has a live, analog quality that can’t easily be found amid the highly digitized and auto-tuned tracks which populate top-40 radio. Rich, real and full of groove and attitude, Taylor James’ “Say It’s Me / Living for You” video is not to be missed.

The video is the capstone of a series of capital Taylor James releases which began in November of 2014 with his “Good News” single and instrumental, rose to a crescendo with his popular “Olde School” LP, and mellowed for the holiday season with his newest EP, “A Taylormade Christmas.” Each of his recent releases has been published on the Hearts of Gold Music independent label to much fanfare and universal approbation.

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.

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 releases instrumental version of latest single ‘Say It’s Me / Living for You’

The R ‘n’ B composer, singer and songwriter known as Taylor James has released an instrumental version of his latest popular single, “Say It’s Me / Living for You.” The track comes riding the coattails of the original release, which came to the public ear just days prior complete with James’ signature vocals, harmonies and characteristic singing timbre. It is part of a series of official releases from James late in 2014 that is led by a flagship LP, “Olde School,” and which have been received by his loyal audience with open arms. These remarkable tracks have each been published on the Hearts of Gold music label.

While the definitive “Say It’s Me / Living for You” track has been turning heads since its release, the instrumental version is at least as riveting – absolutely worthwhile as a standalone music publication. As has been posited in music press elsewhere, the music of Taylor James is multifaceted and written, performed and recorded with top-notch quality, so that the instrumentation of his records deserve to be released even without his majestic vocal tracks. This is to ensure that true audiophiles might more fully be able to appreciate his remarkable music, which is easily overshadowed by the singing for which he has been renowned for decades.

Taylor James has cited as musical inspirations the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, and also the music mastermind, Quincy Jones. James’ own sound and style are funky and groovy, earmarked by excellent songwriting and composition, and polished to a high shine in the studio that most producers are unable to attain. Lush, danceable and highly textured, his recent “Good News” single has become one of the most powerful singles of 2014, and is expected to continue to grow his fan base for years to come.

Also significant from James in recent weeks is his seasonal EP, “A Taylormade Christmas,” which is perhaps the most well-produced, written and performed Christmas music to have been published in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Taylor James releases ‘A Taylormade Christmas’

The latest LP from the singer and songwriter known as Taylor James has dropped, titled, “A Taylormade Christmas.” It is the most significant recently published release from James since his “Olde School” LP, also dropped this last quarter of 2014. “A Taylormade Christmas,” like all of James’ contemporary releases, has been published on the Hearts of Gold Recording independent music label.

As might be intuited from the title, “A Taylormade Christmas” is a seasonal record from James, full of the holiday spirit and tradition. What is less obvious is that the long-play album is composed of five new renditions of his Christmas classic, “Christmas & You,” and a surprise new track, “Wishing You a Merry Christmas.” The album is triumphantly capped with the original version of “Christmas & You,” included here for any Taylor James fans who might have missed it somehow when it originally hit airwaves and shelves in 1975.

The styles, modes and tones of the various renditions of “Christmas & You” included on “A Taylormade Christmas” are each effective in their own way, yet different enough from one another to make listening to the LP from start to finish a pleasant tour of possibilities which emerge colorfully from his original single. These different varieties include new-school and old-school radio mixes, new-school and old-school extended mixes, and an extended version that does not include the vocals of Taylor James, added to the LP for those who would like to hear and appreciate his expert instrumentation without it being overshadowed by the graceful and soulful singing which is generally the centerpiece of his performance.

Taylor James (born James Albert Taylor) cites as main artistic influences Godfather of Soul James Brown and mastermind music mogul Quincy Jones. 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.
