I lived in Austin, Texas, for a year and half, and it changed me. There was nothing more intoxicating than walking down South Congress Street, to the Continental Club, to see the most soulful and talented local and national artist, 7 days a week. The best talent in this country is sitting in Austin, Texas, and one of those talents, I discovered is, Kalu James. His style and song writing has a unique blend of blues-rock, soul, and African folk music. His voice is hauntingly soulful and his lyrics tell a story of a man working his way through life. The band is disciplined, top notch, and tasty. Kalu James, is on his way up and his star is bright.
