Joshua P. James and the Paper Planes

Indie/Country/Folk (Columbus)

Joshua P. James’ songs could have been written yesterday or 60 years ago. With a tight, blazing rhythm section, those songs are let loose with a modern energy, free of gimmickry or signs of trad Country tourism. The trio sells their soulful, gritty take with a straight-from-the-gut delivery, the early Folk/Country/Blues sound oozing forth effortlessly. They mean it and you’ll know it. James released his solo debut, As Long As I Am Tall, last year.
