ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alfred James is the only cellist in the world playing a black, 5 string carbon fiber cello -- standing up!

Alfred started playing the cello as a young boy after his father (a surgeon and amateur cellist) suffered a stroke that ended both his surgical and musical careers. Alfred picked up his dad's cello where he left off and the rest as they say is history... His influences range from Pablo Casals, Ralph Kirshbaum, Yo Yo Ma, Sting, Dave Matthews, and of course, his dad.

We made our National TV debut in September 2007 on Comcast CN8's nightly entertainment program, Backstage with Barry Nolan.

The band toured Greece and Turkey in June 2007 accompanying The Philadelphia Boys Choir and Chorale. While we were on tour, XM Satellite Radio selected us as their Artist of the Week on The Radar Report.

We won a Grammy songwriting contest in May 2007 and performed at 2 Grammy showcases.

NPR featured our song, Better Days, on their online music show, All Songs Considered where it received the highest rating of any artist on the program.

We've opened for Bruce Hornsby and Dave Mason and Alfred was featured in the August issue of Main Line Today Magazine as one of the Main Line's Artists to Watch.

We are currently touring colleges and acoustic venues nationally (while planning our next international tour!).

Lucky If Easy was nominated for 2 Underground Grammy's in 2006 -- for Album of the Year and Song of the Year. After a trip out to LA, it took home 4th place out of over 3000 submissions!

Welcome to the high energy sounds of the Alfred James Band and remember, the cello isn't just for classical music anymore.

The up and coming new sound!
Alfred James, a masterful cellist, can also rock out with the best of them, but what really makes these tunes stand out are their arrangements. In recording these tunes, the band really stretches into a very wide variety of genres while giving you a singular signature sound that's amazing. If you don't buy this CD, you've missed something unique and very worthwhile.
