The overarching theme of the album is to remind listeners that God can bring you out of any situation, overcome any circumstances. “I want these songs to be encouraging to the listener. This album was born from difficult circumstances I went through in my life,” James said. “Not so long ago I was at a place in my life where I really needed to hear encouraging words about the awesome power of God. Now I want to share those same words with others.”
With musical inspirations ranging from Pearl Jam, The Allman Brothers, Third Day, John Mayer and MercyMe, “Rise from Ruin” infuses blues rock with pop and gospel. From the first track to the last listeners will enjoy James’ raspy soulful sound.
The album features 11 tracks and is available at lukejamesonline.com, iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.
