Close to You - Hymns of Praise
“His style is honest; his singing is true.” (RTE Guide, Ireland)
James Kilbane form Achill Island, Ireland has against the odds emerged in Ireland and abroad over the past two years as a powerful voice and a great performer of Country, Irish and Gospel music styles.
Following the wonderful response to his Gospel single “Close to You, (I watch the Sunrise)” featured on Mid West Radio, religious programming in Ireland, James was been inundated with letters, phone calls and requests for him to release the “Close to You” recording. James identified from the public response that there was a need with radio listeners for religious music alongside his recent Country Music release of “King of the Road”.
As a result Foxy Disks is delighted to announce that they have re-mastered and beautifully packaged this truly natural and spiritual album, “Close to You. Hymns of Praise”. Recorded in 2003, the album captures the sincere and marvellous voice of James Kilbane. James through the You’re A Star television show and his continued work in music since has become famous for his singing and respected by many people at home and abroad. On the” Close to You. Hymns of Praise” album James relays with respect and sensitivity some of the most celebrated hymns of his Irish Christian faith.
