West Yorkshire native Lenny James, released his debut single ‘Make Our Move’ on the 24th of last month. He’s working on releasing his debut album this year with the help of Starwood Management, who have produced stars such as The Kooks, Michael Kiwanuka and Little Simz – and Danny Yates, musician and owner of City Sounds Studio. The young singer/songwriter has already racked up over 100,000 views on YouTube and thousands on TikTok with his covers.
‘Make Our Move’ is a track we can all relate to, written in the first lockdown of the pandemic last year – it’s about being physically trapped inside as well as your own mind, craving an escape and freedom. Lenny’s vocals are definitely the focus of the single along with the lyrics, his raspy soulful voice carries the message in an emotional, hopeful way. The music fits the lyrics perfectly – upbeat and making you as the listener, feel a sense of hopefulness as we see normality on the horizon, we are: “just waiting for the right time for us to make our move.”
Lenny James is definitely a name you should be keeping an eye on, with backing from big names in the industry and the talent – we’re expecting to see him climb the charts in no time.
His debut album is set to be dropping this year, but ‘Make Our Move’ is available to stream on all major platforms now.
