What You Need To Know
As a new artist, Coby James showcases the instincts and songcraft of a seasoned veteran. Coby proves this on his debut single, "Paradise." At only 17 years of age, he co-produced, wrote, and performed the instruments on his debut single. This truly illustrates Coby's vast potential.
What It Sounds Like
Acoustic Vol. 1 is everything you would expect from an acoustic EP. It has the beautiful strumming of a guitar, accompanied by excellent vocals. It's just an overall great sound. Whether you want a slow or upbeat song, Coby has you covered. The stellar chords Coby plays with his guitar make this EP feel alive and fresh. Coby does his best to separate himself from the others.
This album offers a variety of spiritual highlights and it’s really hard to identify just one. The one that stands out the most is from the song “Paradise.” This song really captures our emotions and shows us a view of Heaven. The chorus itself is beautiful and it’ll make you sing along. “Think I finally found out that/Next to You is the promised land, the promised land/Paradise/Everything else is wasted time/'Cuz by Your side is/Paradise, oh my/Oh oh oh oh.” This song shows us God’s paradise in heaven.
Best Song On Record
Every song is created uniquely with its epic guitar chords and Coby’s talented vocals. Picking the best song is difficult–especially when all tracks are made their own special way. With that being said, the song “Happier” is my favorite track on the EP. It's a deeply personal song for Coby–an open letter to his grandfather who he hasn’t seen since he was young. The song really shows the pain and questions that Coby experienced when he was 17.
