Kelley James is a prime example of what touring and sponsorships can do for a music career.
Playing over 750 shows in the past 5 years, James has built quite the career for himself.
He is the creator of The Soroity and Fraternity Tour which was sponsored by Oakley and Muscle Milk. He has played with the likes of Mike Posner, O.A.R., and Joshua Radin. He has sold out shows at The Troubador, Roxy, and Keyclub.
He has also worked with San Francisco Giant’s pitcher Brian Zito and his charity Strikeouts for Troops. He also performs regularly at PGA Tour events and has attracted the attention of corporations including Corona, DC Shoes, Honda, and Red Bull.
His resume goes a lot deeper than that but you get my point.
So what about the music?
Kelley James creates an uplifting blend of pop, hip hop, reggae, and rock which appeals to a wide array of music listeners.
Listening to The Pattern Transcending reminds me a lot of the first time I ever heard a Mike Posner song.
Every track is radio ready. The production is pristine. And all 12 songs can stand on their own as powerful singles.
No wonder he has attracted so much attention from the corporate world.
On top of all this, the ladies are going to go crazy over this guy (at least the ones that haven’t heard of him yet).
