Los Angeles-based singer\songwriter\producer Citizen James releases his single “Letters in Cursive part 1”. The track is a cleverly blended mix of alternative, electronic and acoustic riffs set to the backbone of vintage, punchy and hip-hop inspired drum tracks. The complicity of relationships, the anguish of holding onto an unattainable idea and finding the strength to move forward are the key themes to this laid back synth-layered track. The single was co-produced by Steven Valenzuela and features additional guitar by master guitarist Tim Pierce (Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Elton John). The dreamy color-filled music video for “Letters in Cursive part 1” is directed by Interiorstate.
“Relationships suck but they can also be amazing. I guess it’s all about finding that balance. This song was my therapy in trying to find that zen.” – Citizen James
