Veteran singer Leela James shows off her rock and blues side after teaming up with The Truth on the new EP “Are You Ready?” The project represents the next stage in her musical journey and comes via a five song EP on Entertainment One. The first single was the previously released “That Woman”.
This is a liberating project for James, who has joined forces with three super pedigree musicians to create songs that combine a little bit of blues, a little bit of soul, and a whole lot of rock ’n roll: guitarist Jairus “JMo” Mozee, bassist Eric Ingram, and drummer David “Dae-Dae” Haddon. Leela adds:
“I was most excited to join forces with The Truth band in creating this ARE YOU READY? project, because I knew it would become something magical. We pretty much recorded the project over the course of two weeks and it was effortless because the music just flowed naturally. It felt good to work on music and not be inhibited in the approach. I’m constantly evolving as an artist, not to mention I love all kinds of music, always have and always will, and I think this project is the beginning of showing just that.”
The project was produced by Leela James & The Truth, along with executive producer Rex Rideout.
