Karli & James- 9.23.22
“There’s nothing like writing songs,” says Karli Chayne, lead singer in rising country duo Karli & James. “The vibe I get when I’m putting my feelings on paper, then turning those emotions into a song…it just does it for me.” Her partner, James Sinclair-Stott, is equally enthusiastic about the recording process: “The really exciting part for me is taking a song we’ve written on acoustic guitar and making it a full-blown, radio-quality production.”
Those two perspectives are crucial to the energy this duo brings to their artistry. Karli leans pure country; James leans indie rock, and the result is a refreshingly modern blend that the critics love. “Karli’s winsome soprano takes the lead with James’s soft harmony backing her flawlessly.…Well produced and radio ready,” notes Robert K. Oermann, MusicRow magazine.
And the duo is digging even deeper as they mature as a couple and as artists. Someday Dreaming¬, the EP the duo is currently recording, represents the culmination of that growth. Every song is co-written by Karli and James, with James’s as the solo producer.
In addition to refining their musical niche, Karli & James have spent the last few years honing their live performance chops and building an audience. In addition to playing historic venues in Nashville, the duo has also opened for Brandy Clark, Lonestar, Uncle Kracker, Casey Donahew, Thompson Square, Mark Chesnutt, Sara Evans and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
