Top 10 Artist from NBC’s The Voice Announces New Album
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Reagan James is poised to impress with "Have a Nice Day"
Dallas/Fort Worth (January 19, 2016) – 17-year-old R&B singer-songwriter Reagan James, thrust into the national spotlight in 2014 as a Top 10 artist on NBC’s The Voice combines soulful melody with contagious beats in her latest studio release “Have a Nice Day” (January, 2016). “Have a Nice Day” will be available on iTunes and all major digital outlets on January 29, 2016.
“The country got a little taste of what Reagan could do when she appeared on Season 7 of The Voice. And to hear how her sound has evolved since that time is pure joy. I can't wait for the world to hear and see her soul truly shine.” - Kellie Rasberry, Co-Host, Kidd Kraddick in the Morning Show
A sneak preview of “Have a Nice Day” is now available on the artist's Sound Cloud page. Additional tracks are available to the media for preview upon request.
Having received over 7.5 million views on YouTube and garnering a broad national following of tens of thousands of fans, James has taken the first crucial step in her post-The Voice career with “Have a Nice Day.” The eight-song album—recorded at WaveLight Studios in Fort Worth, Texas, and written entirely by James, longtime producer Geoff Rockwell, and guitarist Aaron Anthony—provides the young artist with an opportunity to establish an identity all her own.
The project also serves as yet another striking exhibition of James’ lyrical prowess and melodic genius—gifts that gained her widespread attention via her first studio release “Remedy” (October 2013). Adding to her writing credentials, Central Track ranked James’ single “Blue” (March 2015) Number 8 on the Top 100 Local Songs of 2015, keeping company with other notable artists such as Leon Bridges, Maren Morris, Erykah Badu, and Demi Lovato.
A year in the making, James says that "Have a Nice" is the result of hundreds of hours of musical study and an overall broadening of her worldview. In her own words, “The lyrics of these songs are simply a letter to everyone who hears them; enjoy, and have a nice day.”
Album Release Show: James’ album release show will take place March 11 at The Live Oak music hall in Fort Worth. Joining the bill will be Madi Davis (Top 6 artist, The Voice season 9) and Dallas-based band SIR. Tickets are available at Ticketfly.com. Additional upcoming appearances, including a coveted slot at 35 Denton, can be found at ReaganJames.net.
“Reagan James possesses a soul, verve, and swagger way beyond her years. Her unapologetic love for Erykah Badu, Norah Jones, and Amy Winehouse is apparent from the first note, so hearing her voice is like a conversation among those three at post-work cocktails - and yet she is her own woman. Reagan is the future!” - Gio Washington-Wright, Woodwind Artist-Composer-Arranger-Producer Craig Robinson, Meghan Trainor, Mary Wilson, & Estelle
