Milwaukee singer/songwriter Peggy James will release her fourth solo studio album entitled “Nothing In Between” on June 29th, 2018. Championed by veteran producer/guitarist Jim Eannelli whose meticulous attention to detail ensured that justice was served to the projects’ recording. To that end, “Nothing In Between” has all the earmarks of becoming a Peggy James favorite for new and old fans alike.
James is a prolific songwriter whose Midwestern roots and Southwestern influences are embodied gracefully within her compositions. Peggy’s insightful lyrics counterbalance her muscular guitar-driven sound while always hinting at something timeless and rooted in bluegrass, folk-rock and country-western styles. Her songs are well-told, finely crafted stories delivered with authenticity – the creations of a mature songwriter in her prime.
Peggy James has opened for such notables as Iris Dement, BoDeans, Salt Creek. She often draws comparisons to Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin and Sarah McLachlan.
“Peggy James has a lot going for her: emotive lyrics and melodies that work together in smartly crafted songs; a stunning voice operating in several emotional registers… [her music] crosses the boundaries of country, pop, and rock and rubs elbows with the kind of heartland sound associated with the Jayhawks.” – Continental Drift – Billboard Magazine
Breathtaking moments exist on “Nothing In Between” where James’ sweet pure, voice, balances vulnerability and toughness by revealing wisdom in songs that are a little bit country, a bit rock-n-roll and a lot of soul.
The album releases June 29th in digital and physical formats on Happy Growl Records. For information on Peggy James please visit www.facebook.com/PeggyJamesMusician
