Touching on delicate subjects with eloquence and vivid imagery like in his politically charged song "Mr. Majestic" , where Kalu illustrates the necessity of ending violence ("we can't go on dropping bombs like they are skittles and m&m's all over the world"… ) and "Freedom" , then easily changing it up to bring us to the places of love and tenderness with songs like "Fallin' In Love With You" and "You are Beautiful" , a stirring homage to the people of his native land.
Kalu James will capture you, challenge you and change you.
Written words don't communicate the scope of Kalu's passion or approach. Recordings convey the spirit adequately, but the best way to experience Kalu is to see him live. The songs and moods take on lives and possess an individual energy of their own, transporting you to where he wants you to be and allowing you to feel what he wants you to feel. His messages are potent and important, and there has never been a time when an artist like Kalu James was more necessary than right now.
He also has recently released his debut CD entitled "The Way I Feel".
Kalu could be found playing at numerous Coffeehouses and Bars in Austin, TX where he recently moved from Rochester,NY
