James & Black is committed to being a team; to forfeit all attitudes and egos for one common goal, and that's delivering authentic and inspired music to the masses. 

We are anxious to return to the Studio for the recording of our 'Sophomore Album' and continue traveling the rail to spread our message far and wide. 

Everyone loves a train and we're no different.  We'll keep updating our global passes for us three musicians, gear, and luggage until we can purchase our own mode of transportation. We have caught trains from Bologna to Amsterdam to Paris to Barcelona to Brussels and Berlin and back with everything we own on our backs. We've traveled over 12000km (7500mi) and spent over 4000eu ($5200) on train tickets.

Our goal is to raise 5500eu ($7167) by the end of summer, and we'd like your assistance in getting the fat muse to sing. So here's a breakdown of what the funds raised will be used towards: 

*recording the new album
*purchase of global passes 
*video for the single released from the album
*mixing & mastering
*touring/ traveling to the different festivals, venues, and beautiful grimy hole's in the wall we have been invited to perform at

Bruce James is a producer, songwriter, singer and multi-Instrumentalist with four albums to his credit. He cut his teeth as the bandleader of Austin,Texas based band Tunji and the Bruce James Soultet.

After meeting the talented songwriter and singer Bella Black and producing her debut album, they found the harmony in their voices on a road trip. That turned these two spirited solo artists into a Righteous Duo. Early 2012 they recorded their first collaboration in 'Dirt For the Flowers' and successfully toured the U.S. and Europe. In August DJ Phil Ross joined James & Black completing the current trio.   

Your support determines whether or not we can give this new record and tour the justice it deserves.
Any additional funds will be used towards help with those 'wtf situations' that sometimes happen (like all our recording gear, as well as both our laptops stolen from the train in Belgium). As traveling Troubadours, James & Black is dependent upon you to tell everyone and their mama to Donate. Because we believe in our mission, we have prepared kick arse treats for you looking out for us.

As we receive your funding towards the close of our project {Thank YOU} we'll start sending your Awesome paraphernalia. The Band will let you know the latest happenins by posting updates from the studio, photos, videos, and shout~outs to show you how important your contribution is to our project's success. 
We look forward to spreading our musical message to our brothers and sisters the world over.
