In addition to these projects, Universal Republic digitally released Cauley’s version of Bruno Mars, “Grenade” from his blind audition on NBC’s “The Voice.”
James David Carter
I'm simple..I have melodies swirling around in my head from the time I wake up until the time I fall asleep. I love melody. I love the maker of melody even more. I feel most comfortable in my skin when I'm able to use the gift I've been given. I'm an observer and typically slow to speak. I believe there is a song in most every situation, detail, emotion and place we find ourselves in life. I love God, but am definitely imperfect. I'm a sinner, and still called a saint..it's a pretty cool deal that I still can't always fathom. I believe we are all messed up and in need. I'm a big kid. I love to laugh. I gravitate to people who don't feel the need to impress, but are cool with just being themselves. I'm into most anything with soul. I'm writing right now for a record I plan on recording this year...stay tuned.
