Katie James is a prolific 19 year-old recording artist navigating today’s contemporary landscape with an air of authenticity blended with an innate vulnerability. Combined with her pop-country career, she is also currently studying at Lipscomb University in Nashville. Her astonishing work ethic, which sees her study during the day and still play shows most nights of the week, has produced a balanced student-work mentality, making her an inspiration to many young aspiring artists who are determined to pursue an education and be involved in music as well. With her persistent approach, mental strength, and inspired energy, she is definitely set to make her name memorable throughout the music industry as she officially starts what promises to be a flourishing music career.
Her debut single, “Black Coffee,” radiates with an extremely catchy melody bolstered by Katie James’ golden vocal performance. Docking her boat at the harbor of atmospheric pop-country, this record introduces a talented singer-songwriter with keen pop sensibilities and infectious country features to fashion an undeniably sweet pop-country ballad.
Featuring a quintessentially country-inspired infectious acoustic guitar, vibrant pop instrumentation, and a vocal-driven sound, Katie James brings an impressive performance to the table that is such a joy to get lost in.
Injecting that healthy dose of emotional appeal with her lush vocals and guitar harmonies, “Black Coffee” is the type of track that remains in your head even when you are not listening to it. It is addicting, and entrancing, and captures the essence of country and the tonality of pop magnificently, underscoring its genre-bending quality!
