James Reams' "Rhyme & Season" is Now in Production

Rhyme & SeasonJames Reams made an exciting announcement in his latest newsletter. "The release date is March 29th!! Sometimes I forget just how hard it is to release a new album. It’s kinda like childbirth, the joy of seeing the new project in your hands makes you forget about the long months of labor to get to that point! Just take a look and listen to the “Making of Rhyme & Season” video and you’ll get a taste for what it takes to make an album as well as a nice little appetizer of the album itself. Selecting the songs, writing new material, creating new arrangements, countless hours of practice, interviews, press releases, filming videos, graphic design, recording, mixing, production and finally distribution…it can really take a toll on a feller (and his pocketbook!). But you couldn’t find a prouder “papa” than I am about my latest CD, Rhyme & Season, which will be available on CDBaby, Amazon and other online sources on March 29th."
