What is genuine “American music” in the 21st Century? What melodies convey the spirit of and relate to the life experiences of today’s average American? Is the historic artistry of sharing these experiences through song merely a distant memory, lost on a generation that neither appreciates our nation’s history of blue collar workmanship and survival, or the rough-hewn troubadours that delivered their stories about life?

The music of Cyrus James embodies this uniquely American spirit. It is his family’s story and heritage, passed on to and also lived by him. Cyrus had no choice; his life thus far has written the songs for him, simultaneously setting both the figurative and literal stages for him to tell whoever may listen, in song, what Americana truly means.
