Gabe James is an LA-based singer-songwriter and guitarist from Colorado. Not too long ago, he released a delightful pop tune, entitled, “GRACIE.”
Gabe James – “GRACIE” visualizer
‘GRACIE’ is sure to melt even the coldest of hearts. The emotional tune is about trying to win over a girl that you’ve fallen deeply in love with. Furthermore, “GRACIE” contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Damien Rice, Chet Faker, and John Mayer. The likable tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with contemporary and alternative-pop elements. Also, “GRACIE” is featured on Gabe James’s latest EP, entitled, “CITY OF LOST ANGELS.”
The four-track project represents James’s first couple of weeks living in Los Angeles as an 18-year-old artist. He stepped out of his comfort zone in the foothills of Colorado to pursue his dreams. Now, he feels like a fish out of water, trying to make sense of the blinding Hollywood lights.
“CITY OF LOST ANGELS”
“I was in an entirely new environment that I wasn’t used to yet. The EP cover shot shows me being swept in by the waves as if I had just been out at sea and came onto the shores of California for the first time. Also, it ties in symbolically with the lyrics in the chorus on the focus track song off the EP, GRACIE. Moving out to California made me want the production in my songs to feel big. Though I still felt somewhat attached to that singer-songwriter style of music I was so accustomed to growing up. I think this EP captures a little bit of both sides of what I used to listen to growing up and what I listen to now.” – Gabe James explained
The EP begins with the plucky, fast-paced, “FLICKER,” which narrates being led on by a girl back in high school and what that felt like at the time. Featuring warm, all-encompassing vocals and building into a passionate, crashing chorus—the raw, honest feel results in a powerful single.
‘COLORADO’ is a song about leaving town and having to say goodbye to your loved ones. With folky guitars and echoing pianos, the track emits a melancholy feel, while Gabe James’s velvet vocals demonstrate his impressive range.
‘LONG TIME’ was heavily inspired by John Mayer. From the melodic guitars and harmonies, this song is a feel-good anthem and a totally infectious earworm.
