Return to James Durbin






Interview with James Durbin


1) You currently finished recording your upcoming album CELEBRATE. Could you tell me more about CELEBRATE and its concept?

CELEBRATE is my 2nd solo studio album. At first I was just very focused on writing solid songs. Then I started noticing that most of them had a similar positive outlook. The writing sessions themselves were all very positive, rad experiences. When it came time to pick the album title, I couldn’t stop thinking CELEBRATE. I’m in a good positive thinking place in my life & CELEBRATE is my mantra.

2) You recently released ‘Parachute’ single on November 22 on iTunes. What can we expect from this song and why did you choose it as the first single?

PARACHUTE is just a kick ass song! I had a great time writing it with Andy Stochansky & my Producer Scott Stevens. We focused on the lyrics having a positive message while still being a total party song. PARACHUTE is available NOW on iTunes for $.69!

3) Being on American Idol Season 10, how has the experience helped you in your music career?

If not for Idol I might still be delivering pizzas. Idol gave me the opportunity to fully make my dreams into reality. Thanks to Idol I have a music career.

4) Do you have any hidden talents?

I’m not sure. I’ve always loved The Arts. Drawing, Theater, Music, etc. I learn things very quickly. I also have a seemingly endless knowledge of useless information haha.

5) What do you do in your free time when you are not singing?

I spend a lot of time at home with my family. They’re my everything. And my wife & I love watching Duck Dynasty together haha.
