Nashville songwriter and rising solo artist Greylan James has rounded up a special collection of songs for his debut EP, I Hope She Hears These, available now.
The five-song EP includes two brand new tracks, as well as three previously released singles, and serves as a cohesive love letter to someone special as suggested by the project’s title. From the debut single, “Anything Cold,” to his latest release, “Walls,” James’ self-produced the entire project and can be heard playing every instrument on the EP.
“After writing songs for other country artists’ projects, I’m so excited to finally be putting out my own EP. These songs took a lot of living, heartbreak, alcohol, love, & time to create,” James notes. “I think everyone can find themselves in one of these songs, and I’m glad they’re finally out of the vault and into the world.”
Born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, James made his way to Nashville at 18 where he quickly signed with Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG). Since then, he’s been featured on NBC’s The Voice, named one of the best guitarists in the world under 21 by Guitar Center Magazine’s Brotherhood of the Guitar Top 100 and earned his first No. 1 single with Kenny Chesney’s “Happy Does.” James has racked up over 400,000 streams on Spotify alone thus far with only a handful of releases.
To celebrate the release of his debut EP, James will open up for Scotty McCreery in Colorado tonight (Aug. 12).
