Who said that BIG things don't come in small packages? Well, this CD easily proves that wrong! King James III "THE REIGN BEGINS" is definitely hot! If you're lookin' for new flava, somethin' different, original, off the hinges, without ANY samples, then look no further. Take a listen. King James III is a solo artist with years of experience in song writing. A strong background in Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae, Blues, Jazz, Rock, some Classical and even Country music make him well prepared and well worth listening to in any genre. "I truly believe I can write anything because I hear music all the time," he says as he picks up his Fender Strat. "I've been writing, dancing & singing for as long as I can remember." He was raised in a house filled with music influenced by his father's 60's band "The VanDykes" and his grandfather's blues guitar playing. Some of his favorite artists are R-Kelly, Musiq, Mario Winans, Usher, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Rakim, Sean Paul, Supercat, Al Green, Otis Redding, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles to name only a few. "I've done some studio work in the past with Chris Malnichek, played in a few rock bands and did a few gigs here and there, ya' know, nothin' serious, but this time I'm for real. I really want to do songwriting for other artists, but since I don't know any of the big playas in the biz, I guess I'll have to just do this FADOLO and let them come find me!" Fadolo is right! King James III does everything himself, from singing to recording, playing, editing and arranging all from his "Hyper Sounds" studio! All of which makes him a valuable asset to the industry, a real diamond in the ruff. I can't say enough about him. Be sure your on the lookout for upcoming events, videos, shows, CD's or songs from various artists that may carry his name, because no matter what it is you'll know it's gonna be good! In the end there can be only one! So make way, for a King Cometh!!!!!!!
