While most 18 year olds are heading off for their first or second year of college, songwriter Andrew St. James just released his debut album Doldrums and is preparing to hit the road and play it live for the world. The San Francisco native co-produced the record with Jim Greer (a platinum record recipient for his work with Foster The People) and the 11-track collection of tunes is nothing short of stellar. The record’s lead-off track “Cassidy” has all the bells and echoes of The Dead’s “Scarlet Begonias,” while “I’m All About You” has a strong vocal vibe akin to Zeppelin “Fool In The Rain.” The throwback feel of “Visions” is a great introduction for this timeless feeling record, we’re seriously looking for proof that St. James is only 18, as the whole thing feels musically grounded and incredibly mature. Check out the video for “Visions” below and Doldrums in its entirety HERE. If you live in New York you can catch St. James at Rockwood Music Hall November 22nd, and find more live dates HERE.
