Selected by iTunes Editorial Staff as one of the top new singer/songwriters in 2008, Brendan James is set to release his debut album The Day is Brave next month. Rising from his humble beginnings of sneaking into New York City hotel ballrooms to find pianos to practice on, James’s debut includes “Hero’s Song” (from Eddie Vedder’s Body Of War soundtrack) and the single, “Green.” Click here to buy The Ballroom Break-In. This is what those records look like:
His new one The Day Is Brave is in stores 6/3 via Decca/Velour. And, for videos, photos and updates visit the official site. As you may have guessed by now, this week’s ‘Gum Drop giveaway involves James. One winner gets signed copies of the aforementioned The Ballroom Break-In and Body Of War, along with a signed/matted original Brendan James photograph print, and an unsigned Ovation Celebrity CC24-5 mid-depth bowl cutaway acoustic-electric guitar. This is what the booty looks like. (You should be able to differentiate between the photo and the guitar.)
