“…This is a simple, powerful song delivered with honesty and passion that one could easily envision being part of a movie soundtrack..” — Greg Beasley (Senior Music Editor – Airplay Magazine)

Lead singer and music performer James Christian Daniels is the founder of the band “Smokin Ivories”. As a singer and songwriter he is dedicated to writing meaningful songs about the hard & beautiful times in life. After a long pause, James re-invigorated his creative career with new album releases in 2020, published under the name of Smoking Ivories.

His debut song “Talk is Cheap” which was published at the beginning of 2020 as a single released from the upcoming album “Another Broken Promise”. Greg Beasley from Airplay Magazine (the no 1 magazine for new music discovery) reviewed the song at the beginning of April 2020 and wrote: “The vocals are sincere and on point, at times reminiscent of early Bruce Springsteen in tone and timbre and the late Joe Cocker in terms of intensity and the raw passionate conveyance of feeling. I look forward to hearing more from this artist, my bet is that this is an intensely personal original song because it is so well delivered. Definitely an artist to watch!”.
