Catch Myself – Alias James

Brand new video from Country / Americana artist, Alias James is titled, “Catch Myself”. “Catch Myself” is about how easy it is to drift off into memories or dreams, and that jolt that happens when reality intrudes.

AJ lives and records in an old barn “way out in the country”, using old instruments and amps, running everything through tube-driven mic preamps salvaged from old Ampex tape recorders. The diverse sounds and stylings of these songs combine to give the album a unifying factor: an artist’s love of the many shades and variations in the broad palette of Country and Americana music.
