Chart-Topping New Artist Coby James Releases His First AC Radio Single, "Brand New"
James Plays Single On Tour With Danny Gokey; "…we heard his song 'Brand New' and we were floored. Jaws dropped and we about jumped out of our chairs… This guy is going places" - Melissa Montana, STAR 88.3
As an accomplished, TigerBeat-featured 19-year-old musician, the Nashville transplant and North Carolina native's rare talent has already notched a No. 1 song as a contributing writer on Courtnie Ramirez's track, "Who We Are." Writing "Brand New" with Paul Duncan and Christian Hale, with whom he also co-wrote his Top 5 hit "Born Ready," James shares a brash statement of belief in the song alongside his smooth falsetto that slides effortlessly over a sonic landscape with bright horns, celebratory gang vocals and an unmistakable R&B groove.
The premise behind "Brand New" especially resonates with James having had multiple health issues as a child. Having spent so much time as a kid sick and unable to play sports or do what his friends had the stamina to do, music now feels like a gift.
"I hope 'Brand New' lets people see that I'm carefree, excited for the future and living every single day in a joyful spirit," says James. "I feel like that's what I'm called to do—to just bring joy into people's lives."
With his music resonating widely with fans and radio programmers alike, Melissa Montana, STAR 88.3, says, "What in the world just happened?! That's what I and my team thought when we heard Coby James' song 'Brand New.' "Here's this outgoing, bubbly young man that can play the guitar like nobody's business. Then we heard his song 'Brand New' and we were floored. Jaws dropped and we about jumped out of our chairs. This is fresh. This is new. This guy is going places. It's the song you want to start each day with. Smooth, upbeat and a message of hope. We need this!"
Taking his new music and hit songs on the road, James is currently touring with Danny Gokey on the "New Day Tour" that began in April.
