Kurtis James releases an emotional new single, ‘I Want You To Hold Me’ The single is a little sad but extremely relatable. I love the authenticity the track has. The vocals feel like home and the guitar melodies help with that. I feel like this was hard to record but I’m glad he was able to open up. The harmonies are beautiful as well. adding that beautiful tone to the song that allows the listener to really feel his emotions. This definitely a classic country track that we all love.
Born and raised on a farm in central Minnesota, Kurtis was exposed to country music at an early age.
Kurtis moved around many times throughout his school years, attending 7 different schools. In his late teens, Kurtis worked in a sheet metal factory and in an auto repair shop before enlisting in the US Navy. He spent most of a decade in the Navy, stationed primarily in California. In addition to his home state of Minnesota, Kurtis has lived in Florida, Virginia, California, and now lives in Illinois. Kurtis has been playing guitar and singing for several years, but in the last year has written over a dozen songs and is close to completing his first album (‘Maricopa County Angel’ due April ’20 – Thirdfire Records)
