This is the video for the latest single and title track from artist Jo James‘ new EP Back Home out now.
The Austin-based soul/indie rock vocalist delivers an endearing and loveable groove in this infectious and heart-opening single.
You may recognize Joe from featured on Season 17 of The Voice. He has performed at festivals with greats like Leon Russell, Dr John, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. James also backed Robert Randolph at the NOLA Festival and played guitar for Capital Records Pop artist, Fletcher.
Music has always been a safe haven for James growing. Through his teen years, he battled with obesity and depression. Once he learned to fully accept himself for who he was he realized that was the most important thing to overcome his problems. With his music, he wants to encourage others to show love to those around us and most importantly ourselves.
The album is an homage to his wife, Chelsea, who in September 2019 was impacted in a very serious way by Ulcerative Colitis. He wanted to bring awareness to this disease that is quite often misunderstood.
This song has a loving message and the video is a great complement that will bring a smile to your face. He has a neo-retro sound that evokes the likes of Motown sou, funk, and R&B with an effortless charm and jubilance that everyone can appreciate.
