Indie/folk singer, Joshua James hails from Nebraska in the mid-west of the US, and you can clearly hear the wide open plains in James' music, as he crafts delicate and personal melancholy tunes. James recently released a new 5 song EP called, Sing Songs, which are tracks from his forthcoming LP,'Build Me This' sessions that he has been working on for the last year or so. The new disc has a tentative date scheduled for sometime this Spring, and according to James there were a total of 26 songs that were recorded for the sessions with 13 of them making it to the new record. Although the five songs on the EP almost made cut, James felt that they stood out on their own and chose to give them a seperate release. The EP is not availanle in stores, it is only being made available at live shows, and through mailorder. You can purchase it here.
