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.

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.
