“Crime” is the first release from Daddy - a collaboration between James and musician-artist Tim O’Keefe. The two released their debut EP, MotorCity, on September 25th. Listen below:
But wait, how did this all come together? According to James, the two apparently met on a plane and it clicked, let’s make music.
“When we landed I woke up with a smiling face standing over me,” “He said, ‘Hey, I’m a big fan.’ I just stared. ‘It’s Smokey,’ he said. If Smokey Robinson was a fan of mine I wasn’t going to let him get away. Six months later after Tim and I had written the songs I called Smokey from Detroit and asked him to sing on one of the songs and he said sure.”
And it’s not the first time James has crooned. Here’s his version of the pop classic, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”:
- "It was a wick": Artists, friends, and survivors describe what it was like inside the Oakland warehouse party fire that left at least 9 dead.
