DAVID JAMES

Following his 2014 signing with MDM Recordings Inc., David James has consistently delivered. The 2016 release of his debut EP Songs About A Girl” garnered the Manitoba native two CCMA Award nominations including a nod in the ‘Rising Star’ category, his debut performance at the highly celebrated Boots and Hearts Music Festival, and a Canadian Radio Music Award nomination for ‘Best New Group or Solo Artist: Country’. His 2017 sophomore album Downtown Kids, spawned James’ first and second Top 15 hits and most successful singles to date with ‘Sun Set On It’ and the title-track earworm, and he was nominated for four Manitoba Country Music Association Awards including ‘Male Artist of the Year’. In 2018, James dropped ‘Cars, Girls, & The Radio’ and hit the road in 2019 as the featured guest on Aaron Pritchett’s “Out On The Town” tour, stopping in over 50 cities across Canada before wrapping in the fall of that same year. ‘All The Time’, released in the summer of 2019, became James’ fastest climbing song at radio to date, boasting over 2.5 million collective streams. The companion video debuted on CMT in the U.S. as part of their ‘Next Up Now Program’, and later that year James was awarded ‘Male Artist of the Year’ at the MCMA Awards. His EP If I Were You dropped in spring 2020 and that September, he partnered with Genevieve Fisher to reimagine the track ‘Then There’s You’, transforming his solo recording into a smooth duet that highlights both artists’ sparkling vocals. The Top 30 bop ‘Don’t Mind If I Do’ was James’ first release in 2021 and the soundtrack of spring, and his release ‘That’s The Life’ dropped late last year with a traditional radio version, and a unique version created in partnership with True North Sports & Entertainment and The Winnipeg Jets. Now with a combined 19M streams and climbing across all songs, David James has been working on new music with producer Danick Dupelle and showcasing an evolved sound across the single ‘Wreck My Weekend’ and most recent release ‘Let Her Go’.
