Jeffrey James – Hand Grenade

Imagine all the people livin’ life in peace.

A Nashville-based artist graced with uncommonly rich and captivating vocals, Jeffrey James channels his raw talent into a groove-heavy R&B/alt-pop hybrid built on pure emotion. With his music already featured on major TV shows like Nashville, James is set to deliver a new batch of songs showcasing a sensibility that’s emotionally charged and indelibly melodic.
Born and bred in Brownsburg, Indiana, James grew up singing in the school choir and—at age ten—learned to play guitar with the help of the Hal Leonard Guitar Method books his own great uncle had authored. In high school, he joined up with a local alt-rock band, then tried his hand at songwriting for the first time and quickly fell in love with the craft. While majoring in music at Nashville’s Belmont University, James delved deeper into songwriting and immersed himself in the city’s singer/songwriter scene. “I played every writers round I could, testing out songs and getting a feel for what was connecting with people,” he says. “And then when I graduated I started playing a lot of colleges, just grabbing my acoustic guitar and driving up to somewhere in North Dakota or wherever else they’d let me perform.”

BIinding – End of the earth

Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.
Oscar Speech 

“The End Of The Earth’ is the third studio track from London act Blinding. The lo-fidelity backdrop of subs, field recordings and piano sets the scene for the haunting soul vocals of frontman Tom Sutcliffe. Ripped out of the Massive Attack and Portishead template and reinterprited, Blinding have a beautiful and unique sonic. I would die for this, I would do it with ease.”

Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want, everything you want. Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle is gonna come from, the next smile, the next wish come true. But if you believe that it’s right around the Corner and you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, to the certainty of it. You just might get the thing you’re wishing for. The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it? Good. Now believe in it. With all your heart.
