Monday, August 20, 2018

James's newly release "The Light EP" is now available on all digital platforms
THE LIGHT EP overall is JAMES’ journey from darkness to light. After a freak accident, JAMES moved back to Los Angeles and decided to release music written post-accident in a project called ‘The Light EP’. Funding a Kickstarter campaign over 300% of the initial target has been fundamental to rehabilitation and restarting his hopes as a musician. THE LIGHT EP is the sincerest project he has ever worked on which was supported and funded by his fans. Therefore, he feels that it is important to stay true to the core of the EP which is sincerity and authentic conversation. The genre of THE LIGHT EP is much closer to Independent rock or EDM.

About JAMES:
JAMES was a bassist for the Korean-American rock band by the name of Royal Pirates, which debuted into the world of K-pop. Sadly a devastating freak accident in 2015 changed everything for JAMES, forcing him to go on hiatus. The debilitating accident resulted in his left hand being almost chopped off and reattached with minimal function, ending his career as a worldwide touring bassist. After 5 surgeries, JAMES moved back to LA and started a kick-starter project called The LIGHT EP including music written post-accident detailing his journey since then.
