A phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep. . . . This woman is on fire.
—New York Times
Morgan James’s latest studio album is her first as an independent artist, and Reckless Abandon is her most personal outing yet. James assumed co-writing duties on all twelve tracks and sang all her own background vocals. The album is stocked with lush horns and harmonies and stretches limbs between genres for a sound all its own. From the Rufus-inspired soul swagger of the opening track “Up in Smoke” to the delicious R&B slow jam “You Thought Not” to the infectious soulful pop of “Unworthy,” James takes the listener into her new era of freedom and empowerment.
On her full-length debut for Epic Records, Hunter, she cast an unbreakable spell with a powerhouse voice, theatrical swing, and a soulful poise. Hunter boasts a powerful and personal rendition of Prince’s “Call My Name” which reached Top 15 at Urban AC radio and number one Most Added. James co-wrote eight of the collection’s eleven tracks and performed all her own background vocals and harmonies. From the empowering farewell of “Fed Up on You” to the mournful rumination of “Say the Words” or the soulful duet with Grammy Award–winner Robert Glasper, “Let Me Keep You,” she continually bares it all—both emotionally and musically.
