"Landlocked" by Jeremy James (Modern Folk Artist from Albany, New York (NY))

"Landlocked" by modern folk artist Jeremy James is an album with a deep-rooted purpose. Uplifting and inspiring, Jeremy pulls at the heart-strings of listeners with songs like "Home" that summons tears, passion, and hope all in the duration of a three minute song. "Old Man Winter" stands out as potently emotional and lyrically crafty. Moreover, Jeremy's vocals are best described as pacifying and contagiously hopeful. "Landlocked" hails no fewer accolades in the area of instrumentation with its catchy lead acoustic guitars and occasional organs. What's more, this record carries with it production that many artists strive to obtain. Modern folk fans of bands such as Nickel Creek will find this assembly to be a well-worth-it investment that will undoubtedly yield renewed hope and optimism!
