Brought to you in Association with THE HARD ROCK CAFE, EAGLE PARKING, THE FUNKY UMBRELLA, AND THE RECORD SHOP RECORDING STUDIO,
Michigan natives Brent James & The Contraband formed about 2 years ago after a chance meeting with Grammy Award Winning producer Skidd Mills. "Some of my raw acoustic demo's were passed onto him by our manager and he called me. I was blown away because I knew & loved Skidd's work". BJCB signed to SkiddCo Music & immediately began work on their debut full length at the Sound Kitchen in Nashville Tennessee. "Recording this record was a dream come true. We'd record for a couple weeks, take some time off to tour and then head back into the studio", says James. In a day and age where so much is pre fabricated and polished up, this band is a huge breath of fresh air. Classic rock influenced with a modern rock twist, shook up and poured into a shot glass full of groove. BJCB are able to melt your face, or slow it down with an acoustic ballad that slowly melts all the girls chocolate hearts on their way to the merch table. There is truly something "hear" for every listener. So get up, put your lighters and cell phones in the air and let's hear it for Brent James & The Contraband! Their hard work, dedication and Brent's true commitment to the craft of songwriting is undeniable. Look for a 2011 tour and single to impact radio soon thereafter. Listen, live & love.
