Allan James- Our dreams




Words were written by Anselm Anderson for Rambling Man's Reviews

Allan James is a much-accomplished singer-songwriter, based in Northern Virginia, USA

James is a self-taught musician, who began playing guitar and singing songs aged 8 and by the time he reached his early teens, James had started to record and perform his original music for school, dances, and charities.

James returned to the US following a successful stint as host of his own guitar TV show in Iceland, whilst living over there. Allan James achieved critical acclaim following the release of his debut single on local radio stations, as well as releasing  6 albums to date. James has always been at the forefront of utilizing technologies and using the internet to build a fanbase.  He now returns with " Our Dreams", the latest single off his forthcoming new album. A beautifully structured track that captures the soul with its succinct guitar play and poetic lyrics. The track conjures feelings of serenity and calmness

" Our Dreams" begins with a reverb-soaked guitar riff that resonates like waves crashing against rocks. The opening sequence combines rich textures to evoke a sense of inner peace, which sets up the track nicely. James' voice reminds me of a younger David Gilmour ; tranquil and engaging. His lyrics interlope with an emotive message I feel is about moving on. The addition of the harmonica replicates an ode to this.

Allan James writes and produces a track that is everything the title says. A powerful and endearing track that will leave you drifting away with him

Allan James' new album is due out in the summer of 2019
