Seasons of Change
James 'Manchild Davis' Contemporary gospel singer James Davis has raised his voice in song around the world - from Japan to the Philippines to Germany - with many stops in-between. During a stint in the United States Air Force, James won numerous awards with their Tops in Blue traveling variety show. With over 500 songs to his credit, the material that James is singing and writing these days contains positive messages that seek to break down all barriers. It is time that we return to relative messages and songs with positive themes. There is a story in our hearts that needs to be put to music and shared with the world. Songs that children can listen to and sing without worrying about explicits and vulgarity. Songs that tell stories and share experiences like the ones when I was growing up and now I write. Seasons of Change has themes that relate to every-day people, cultures, and their experience and does so in ways that everybody can relate too, regardless of their musical taste. A Florida native, James endeavors to write songs that refresh the spirit and touch the heart. 'Changes', is based on the life of a friend on drugs who was transformed over time after hearing the Lord's message. 'Hear the Drums'is dedicated to his late grandmother who was a Black American Indian, born in Eufaula, Alabama. It reflects some of the experiences she shared with him as a child, passed down to her and a part of her life in the mid-1800s. Seasons of Changes does not follow the traditional style but is rather a mixture of styles from gospel, inspirational, r&b to pop. Tonight is a song of communications, because in every relationship, there comes a definite time to talk about the trials of the experience and share what is interfering with the flow of unity. 'Do Your Best' is a call to do just that, the best that can be done at whatever one chooses to do in life. 'Tell My Mother' is rich and captivating. It centers on a visit to see a friend in jail, it is universal and is down to earth. A song that will stay with you for a long time. 'Come Out of the Rain' is the experience that comes about at meeting a run away teenager one rainy night on the streets. 'Signs of the Time' is about the here and now. What does it mean the signs we see in the world? Trying to find answers to the political and critical issues questions of the end times. 'Tonight part 2' is an uptempo version of part 1 that gives a disco kind of feel to the invitation to talk with that special person in our life. 'Wilderness Experience' puts one in the mood to reflect on life traveling through desert places, what it must of been like living each day having faith that God would provide all necessities. 'Old School Days' is the experience of meeting an old man one day that remembers a time when life was a lot more simple than it is today. 'Hear the Drums' instrumental is a piano versions of the song of the same name. After absorbing the experience of the vocal version, the album ends with something to remember and solidifies the dedication to his parents and grandmother. This is not an ordinary collection of songs. You will discover it to be very special. Get ready for an experience that is fresh and new. Do it today. Get it while it's hot! Experience for yourself--Seasons of Change.
