With this debut album, Dylan James spent some time finding his true self and expressing that in his lyrics. While laying down very catchy lyrics and smooth acoustic guitar parts Dylan James captivates the listener and gives them a very sweet taste of his mind without sugar coating anything. Living near the coast in Southeast Texas, Dylan has influences from blues, folk, rock, and reggae. The laid back style of the album, 'Alive', allows for the audience to appreciate each and every last note and every last syllable of the lyrics. Dylan James has a unique but entertaining style and is a true joy to listen to. If you like to dance, smile and sing at the top of your lungs, this album is one that is great to buy and enjoy.
