Leela James

With Special Guest: The JonDoe
Monday, July 15 | 8 PM

Leela James has already conquered the R&B world after releasing six critically acclaimed albums, hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s “Top 10 Hip-Hop” and “R&B Artists To Watch” charts with her smash hit, “Don’t Want You Back” (the video for which has over 6.7 million views on YouTube), and performing at big music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Essence Festival, Capitol Jazz Fest, among others.

In April, Leela James & The Truth released the five-song ARE YOU READY? EP on Entertainment One (eOne). The first single and video (directed by child.) for “That Woman” can be seen on JAMES’ official YouTube page. She debuted “That Woman” at the inaugural Black Girls Rock! Festival that was held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC on March 10. Her performance electrified the crowd with the lyrics, “I’m not ‘that woman’/You know my name/Don’t start this fire/You’ll go down in flames.”

Produced by Leela James & The Truth along with executive producer Rex Rideout, and mixed and engineered by Ray Bardani (Beyonce, Meat Loaf, Scritti Politti, Dr. John), ARE YOU READY? was recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, the studio where The Rolling Stones, Van Halen, Prince and many other legends recorded some of their biggest hits.

James received a Soul Train Award for “Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist” and has been nominated for a NAACP Image Award for “Best New Artist.” Now she’s ready to break out her Rock ‘n Roll and Blues side with a new band and new EP, and is excited for her fans to come along for the ride. See James at the Carolina Theatre of Durham on July 15.
