Wire And Wood Recordings LTD, Powderfinger Promotions, and Rive Video proudly announce the release of singer/songwriter Oliver James’ second album, “What Have We Learned” and the album’s lead single, ”The More You Love, The More You Live.”
James’ rock songs combine soaring vocals, sweeping melodies, and one memorable chorus after another. Lush arrangements feature James Sampson on acoustic and electric guitars and lead vocals, accompanied by keyboardist Brett Levine, and the rhythm section of Rick Nash and Larry Grano. with strings arranged by Chris Howes.
Co-produced, mixed, and mastered by Alan Sanderson (Elton John, Rolling Stones, Weezer, Fleetwood Mac amongst many others), “What Have We Learned” and its first single, “The More You Love, The More You Live” is as multidimensional as its makers. There are moments of undeniable celebration and others of quiet introspection and lonely exhalation. Prepare for an amazing aural journey as each song tells a unique story of life in the modern era, drawing the listener in with memorable melodies and moving rhythms.
“The More You Love, The More You Live” with its message of positivity and hope, and its driving and panoramic sing-along chorus, was recognized as “Best Pop/ Rock Song” by the Akademia.
