Album Notes

Tribute To 2 is a collection of cover songs that reverberate with fresh meaning and hope. Blurring the boundaries of time and genre, James interprets songs made famous by a wide variety of classic artists.

“The World Is Falling Down” by Abbey Lincoln was the impetus for Tribute To 2.  “Even though she released this song in 1991 it felt so relevant to right now,” James explained. “I think so many of us feel the world is falling apart right now – that the powers that be are trying to divide us and rip us apart … when I heard that song it just resonated deeply because there is such pain there but I feel she also is offering hope and realization that we need each other’s help in times of crisis.”

Unlike his 2009 EP of songs by George Harrison and the Beatles, Tribute To, which was recorded on an eight-track, reel-to-reel tape recorder in the days following Harrison’s passing, the 11 songs of Tribute To 2 were recorded over a period of years – in different places, with different gear and varied instrumentation.

James explains, “These are some of my favorite covers – songs I recorded trying to bring myself peace during a rough time or trying to make myself laugh or just have fun. I hope others can relate and enjoy the journey during these tough times and hopefully in times of peace and love as well!”
