BRANDEN & JAMES are proud to announce:
A brand new album and crowdfunding partnership with IndieGoGo to fund the project. (Las Vegas, NV) — On Monday, July 2nd, BRANDEN & JAMES will launch their crowdfunding efforts to fund their dream album recorded with Classical-Crossover industry giant, Patrick Hamilton.
Recently recorded in Belgium with Classical-Crossover producer, Patrick Hamilton (Katherine Jenkins, David Garrett, Jackie Evancho, Fernando Varela) the new album will feature 12 brand-new songs including familiar covers and original songs written by Grammy, Oscar and Dove Award winning songwriters. Recorded at The Globe Studios in Bruges, Belgium with world-class European studio musicians. The album will be delivered on a grand-scale complete with a string section, rhythm section, percussion, woodwinds and of course the signature sounds of Branden’s operatic tenor voice and James’ soulful cello. The album also contains one surprise celebrity collaboration by a consummate artist who in 2018, had a #1 Billboard charting album. Details of the collaboration will be revealed in the coming weeks. Branden James, a 2013 Finalist on America’s Got Talent is thrilled to release his third studio album to date. Australian Cellist James Clark will make his recording debut. Following their work in the studio, Decca Artist Patrick Hamilton just began his third collaboration with Katherine Jenkins, the biggest selling Classical-Crossover artist in the past 25 years.
Teaming up with IndieGoGo and offering unique rewards for their donating patrons, the duo has carefully selected a list of songs that will win over the hearts of many. “Someone approached us and offered to front the funds necessary for us to record a full-length album. It would have been a giant mistake not to seize such an opportunity. Now, through IndieGoGo and our hard work and efforts, we hope to convince our fans and friends to support this project that is very close to our hearts,” says James Clark, a high school music teacher turned performer. America’s Got Talent’s Branden James says, “When Patrick (Hamilton) signed on to produce this album, I knew it was something we had to go through with. I’ve never been more proud of a project I was involved in. I think this album will be something very special for all to enjoy.” Proceeds will help offset the costs of recording the album (musician fees, studio, producer, collaborations) as well as pay for promotions, licensing and distribution on the release end of the project.
