Feel the Rhythm
MUCH MORE SOUL THAN EVER BEFORE -JAMES AARON PRESENTS Kinfolk A boychild was born with a song on his heart and a beat in his feet. The magical combination of the Louisiana Bayou and San Francisco created the first rhythms that he felt. His grandad 'Papoo' played trumpet with the legendary Louis Armstrong and taught the youngster to play and love the instrument. From those early days, James dreamed horn lines. By the time James was thirteen he had taught himself the piano, the congas and he loved to sing. An early talent show at the American Theatre in San Francisco's Fillmore featured a $30 dollar first prize and an introduction to the one and only James Brown. James says he will never forget James Browns' advice to 'sing from the heart'...and he determined that he would do just that. James never looked back-he sang in the school bathroom, at talent shows and in church choirs. It was at church that he met one of his most dedicated supporters; 'Mom' Stewart (Sly's mother) fed him, encouraged him and prayed for him. He says that ' she was truly a wonderful person and she never stopped believeing in me.' He was soon fronting his band at sold-out Bay Area venues-Little Bo Peep's, The Ghetto Club, Bimbo's, St.Francis hotel, Masonic Temple and others. Today his musical journey includes blues hamonica, keyboards and of course the bass guitar. He opened early shows with a promise to the crowd, that they would experience 'much more soul than ever before'- He's keeping the promise. The new CD has something for everyone-gritty funk/wailing horns/smokin' bass and rhythm guitar, a drum beat that will put you on the floor and keep you there. Keyboards that attach to every nerve ending. While you listen to I CAN FEEL YOU part 1 and part 2, keep in mind that this is for the individual who thinks they can go away and stay away until they feel the need to return-without consequences!
