Prescott James – A Voice That Brings Back The Past

Having a great voice is definitely a talent that is granted upon birth.  It does not end there though, these gifts need to be nurtured and practiced to bring them to the true level that can be achieved.  Lucky for us our latest find Prescott James found his calling and is now sharing it with the world.

Prescott James

The Jazz singer from Memphis, Tennessee grew up with the powerful soul singing of the South helping to develop his skills.  Prescott hooked up with esteemed vocal coach Bob Westbrook to further push his talent and bring it to the next level.  Westbrook has worked with such well-known voices as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Haley Williams (of Paramore), and Chris Young.  Upon hearing Prescott James’ voice he felt his range was much like that of Frank Sinatra and worked with him to develop that sound.  Unfortunately there are not many low voiced baritones out there today.  Prescott hopes to fill this void.

We were invited to listen to some tracks that Prescott James released as a promotional EP to introduce his voice.  The Sinatra cover of “Fly Me To The Moon” shows right away that this man has a rich toned voice that would fit perfectly back in the 1950’s.  Another example is his take on the Jazz and Wedding standard “Just The Way You Look Tonight”.  The best track we heard was “Live Till I Die”.  The peppy sped up Jazz does not hurt James’ voice at all.  The deep nuances of his voice wash over the listener in a beautiful way.  We look forward to hearing more.  A full debut album is expected for next year.  Keep up with the talented Prescott James at:
