James Vickery has released his new single 'Pressure (Part II)' with Sinead Harnett as part of his brand new project 'Overture - The Reworks'.
This collaboration is smooth, sultry and slick, featuring gorgeous contemporary vocals from both artists. James rich and powerful voice grabs you in from the off and leaves you wanting more. Polished production and a truly soulful sound.
This is the follow up to the hugely successful 'Pressure (With SG Lewis)' in which Vickery continues the story with the aid of the R&B songstress. This will be the first of three vocal “reworks” from his new project which gives his fans a new take on his picks from the critically acclaimed Overture EP released in March.
Speaking about The Reworks project, James gives us this insight:
"I wanted to do something different instead of just putting out typical remixes for Overture. I’m a singer through and through, so I wanted to showcase some extraordinary singers that I know and love. With each song I’ve tried to do something completely different and original, be it continuing the story from the original song, or singing in another language…”
So what can we expect from Vickery moving forward into the album campaign? He tells us:
“I look up to artists like Nao who has stuck with her sound from day one, and has crafted her own lane. I'm definitely trying to do that myself as a UK Male R&B Singer. I want to cover all bases of R&B and experiment with all the subforms with it, keep people guessing what they can expect from me next- with the one thing that ties it all together, the vocal.”
South London's James Vickery is the new face of UK R&B. With his hugely popular COLORS session amassing 19 million views, James caught the attention of many admirers internationally, subsequently leading to the London-born songwriter inking record and publishing deals with LA-based TH3RD BRAIN and Roc Nation respectively despite being born deaf in his left ear.
It’s clear that James Vickery has conquered more struggles than your average singer, but isn’t letting this hold him back as he releases regular unique content and continues working on his debut album due for release in early 2021.
JV's distinctive voice and look, combined with his incredible vision for how his voice fits into a song allows for a completely unique take on R&B and landed him as one of Complex’s British R&B/Soul Artists to watch out for.
