For his 16th studio album, Hearts On Fire, Colin James wanted to try something different. While still working with longtime friend Colin Linden they added a “team” of seasoned musicians that each brought their unique talents to the studio. Whether it was at The House of Blues in Nashville, TN or Magic Ten Studios in Vancouver, BC the team effort has resulted in a record James is very proud of. “Making this record with my good friend Colin Linden and such a fantastic veteran rhythm section was an amazing experience,” James recalls. “The majority of the recording was done in Nashville during a stretch of warm spring weather so every time I hear the songs I feel like I’m right back in The South. I hope my fans enjoy listening to this record as much as we all enjoyed making it.”
