Aided by mentors Nick Blagona (The Police, Deep Purple, Beegees) and Mark Daum (inventor of the piantar), James Alphonse has been nominated for and won awards at the Hamilton Music Awards. His newest mentors are Andre Kaden Black (Fefe Dobson, Francesco Yates) and Tal Vaisman (working in a variety of capacities with groups like 21 Pilots and Imagine Dragons), who have produced James’ forthcoming debut solo EP.
It’s tough to know you’re ready for a real relationship – to find someone you think is your person, and to know they’re just not there with you. “Crazy For You,” the newest single from James, a bit like a cooking recipe. It’s one part “hey, I’m sorry. I was ignorant and couldn’t empathize with you” and another part “this sucks, now I understand.”
