Good Morning Everyone,

Hope everyone is felling well this morning. I wanted to give you all a
little background story about my album and what inspired me in life (my
life) to write the songs that I did. I was waiting for the perfect moment
but it seems as if that moment is now. When I was about 5 years old my
mother Melanie Lee Rose was told that she had breast cancer. At the same
time that she was sick my parent’s relationship was going down the drain and
they decided to call it quits, so for most of my childhood my mother,
sister, family exc….were trying to beat this horrible nasty disease
without having that strong foundation of a solid family. After an 8 year
long battle fighting for her life, being on and off of chemotherapy /
radiation, my Mom had finally lost her battle. I was 13 years old just about
to be 14. This was obviously a very confusing difficult time in my life and
would be for any young girl just getting into her teenage years. I would
deal with the pain the only way I knew how which was to escape the pain. I
started going to Raves at the age of 15 years old where the music along with
the all of the other things which are included when going to a rave, became
the way that I coped. Finally after 3 straight years of living my life for
the next party, I realized that there was so much more to experience in
life. I was ready to really start living. I had finally realized that all
these years I had been running to escape the fact that my Mommy wasn’t here
any more, in actuality she never really left. Now at 18 years old I was
starting to wake up to the fact that my Mom was still here. That her
spirit/energy was surrounding and following me where ever I would go. With
this new found knowledge I started my musical journey. I knew that I was
supposed to make music and share what I had experienced with others. After a
9 year long journey of discovery, learning and living I had finally received
the knowledge and experience that was needed to complete my first album.
The entire process was so healing for me and I know why. So here I am just
days away from the release and my Father has now been told that he has
Cancer. He is in the hospital at the moment fighting Lukemia and seems to be
responding to the chemotherapy very well. We could really use all of your
prayers and positive thoughts. My Dad is a strong man and has a lot of life
left to live so I know that with all of your prayers he will get through
this. Thank you all for listening. I’ll keep you posted on further progress.

Love,
S James
