The Fil-Aussie singer, actor, and entrepreneur James Reid is taking his music global. The Careless Music founder was featured on the Recording Academy YouTube channel, the organization behind the Grammy Awards for their Press Play at Home series. For this special episode, James sings a brand new song, "California Lovin'" which is described as a breezy, carefree banger.
The mellow R&B song which he co-wrote with fellow artists, Ken Nana and Darius Coleman during one of his most recent visits to California. One of his favorite artists is Daft Punk so "California Lovin'" samples that psychedelic funk genre he loves. The video for his episode matches the energy of the song as James is surrounded by warm white and blue lights as he moves around the polished set-up singing about this unique kind relationship.
James has been making waves in America where he's been spotted at events in Los Angeles. He's teased more music is coming soon so this is only the beginning. Stay tuned along with us for more news.
