    Watch: Early James Releases Video for "High Horse"

    Early James released the new music video for “High Horse,” the latest single from his upcoming debut album, Singing for My Supper, due March 13 on Easy Eye Sound and Nonesuch Records. The video, directed by Tim Hardiman, premiered via Rolling Stone Country, which says his "voice has a similar pockmarked, raspy quality and jazzy inflection to early Tom Waits." James, the Alabama native and latest signing to Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound roster, says: "The song is a slightly comedic and regretful retrospective on how your childhood goes by so quickly and time changes your wants, needs and habits." You can watch the video here:

    On the heels of his tour opening for The Marcus King Band, Early James has confirmed a support tour of Canada with The Black Keys. He has previously announced dates with The Lone Bellow and Shovels & Rope throughout the United States. Tickets and more information for all dates are available at nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Singing for My Supper spans hard-charging blues, wistful folk, and ages-old pop crooning, anchored by the singer’s voice, which oscillates from gravel-gruff shout to a honey-smooth whisper. James's inspirations run from Fiona Apple and Tom Waits to the Southern Gothic poets, as heard in the album’s darker themes and in the wry humor with which he writes about them. Singing for My Supper is available for pre-order on all formats here.

"We are hoping that this website can act as a kind of general yellow pages for the current money emergency in the art and music world," they say. "We like to call it our COVID-19 directory of give and take." Art Is Alive also offers a place for artists to interact, to share information as new events, new resources, and new ideas develop.
