Micky James – Give It To Me Straight

Micky James
Taking influence from Brit rock legends, David Bowie, The Clash and The Rolling Stones, Micky James  (who’s name sounds like he should be a Monkees love child), creates infectious rock’n’roll with a hint of glam pop.

Teaming up with Dirty Canvas’s Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta (American Authors, Young Rising Sons) James’ debut single ‘Give It To Me Straight’ bursts with unshakable energy. Featuring pulsating drum beats, driving bass lines and an infectious chorus, ‘Give It To Me Straight’.  James reveals, “They say some of your best work or the best songs you write appear from the sky and happen pretty instantaneous….well I feel ‘Give It To Me Straight’ felt like one those songs”.

Inspired by the authentic energy of 60’s and 70’s iconic rock band’s, James is successful in crafting a modern and fresh approach to a timeless genre, “I wanted to take pieces of nostalgia and give it a contemporary twist”, explains James.
