I recently heard "Caught" and liked its southern soul sound. James said that what he did in the dark came to light. Now isn't that the truth. He got caught cheating on his wife. The girl he got cheating with stayed down the street and he was shocked as hell when his wife walked in on them. He got caught up creeping, sleeping in the wrong bed. Well, there are always consequences to actions...
I'm not familiar with James Smith (looking forward to hearing more of his music) and found some info on him. Here's a small part of his bio as taken from the CDBaby website:
James D. Smith moved to Flint, Michigan from Blytheville, Arkansas in 1965. He began singing in 1967, performing cover hits by the "King of Soul", James Brown. Smith was introduced as "Little James Brown" when he was asked to perform as a follow up act for Al Green at the Motor City Night Club. There, he met Mrs. Glenora, "Ms. G" Roland, who took on the role as James' booking agent. That night was the springboard for his singing career. Ms. G. booked James for performances in numerous hot spots including Cleveland, Ohio and Saginaw, Michigan. James recorded "Mr. Lover Man" and "Play On It" in 1996 and since that time he as recorded over 20 of his songs. In 1997, James established James D. Smith Productions through which he has written scores of songs for himself, other recording artists and Ecko Records. In 1999, "Mr. Lover Man" and "Play On It" were both re-recorded by Chuck Roberson for his national CD release entitled "Love Power".
James Smith has recorded and released six CD's. His latest CD release, titled "James Smith's Greatest Hits" features his new single "Plumber Man".
