Ghosts in the Belly
JAMES CORREA Music is a powerful force. It can move right through you like an arrow, it can wrap itself around you like a warm blanket, or it can lift you up far beyond your expectations. We've all been there before. The ultimate is to experience all three at the same time and then.........you're hooked for life. It is in this spirit that James Correa approaches his role as singer/songwriter/performer/recording artist: to uplift, embrace and rattle the cages of the listener. James Correa was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He has traveled various parts of the world and been influenced by it's multitude of styles and cultures to fuse a unique folk-based blend of pop, rock, eastern and soul. Correa tests the boundaries of pop expectations with a mix of the traditional and the new and a dramatic approach toward melody and arrangement. Correa evokes feelings of profound self-examination in his lyrics. The complexities of love, family, duty and the fragile human condition are carefully scrutinized and delivered in a manner befitting the sensitive, modern man aspiring to spiritual evolution and emotional growth. The measure of any music or it's artist is in the live performance and this is where Correa's star shines the brightest. With his soaring vocal and dynamic back-up band, Correa takes control. From thundering crescendos to deafening silences and all points in between, the experience is not unlike a roller coaster that you ride again and again no matter how breathless it leaves you. Music is a privilege. It has been said that to search for one's unique voice is one way of earning that privilege. If this be true, then James Correa seeks to earn music every time he picks up his guitar, sits behind the piano or puts pencil to paper. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,............JAMES CORREA.
