Top & Bottom: Photos of Aiden James by me
Middle: Aiden with Me, by a nice person
Aiden James is looking to raise some funds to make his next CD. Indie artists are in the position of having no label picking up the tab and having to pay the bill out of their own pocket. On his latest offering, the truly fantastic Live At The Tin Angel, there are a couple of new songs, and I really like them. Just For A Second, Clock On The Wall, and Gonna Hurt More are just wonderful songs - Aiden has really interesting and wonderful lyrics. I would guess this means there are enough new songs to put out a new CD, and I can't help but get excited. Listen to one of my other favorites, the Diva Tribute.
Aiden James Video Release Party @ Tin Angel
The Live CD was recorded at the Tin Angel in Philadelphia, and the occasion was the official release of his first music video for On The Run. It was a great event, and I was there. I swear I sometimes can hear my camera clicking on the tracks... Naw, not really. Here is the video.
