What You Need To Know
Originating from North Carolina, Coby James is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter. Although he's young, he's already making an influence in Christian music. Recently he signed to the record label Centricity Music, and he has four EPs under his belt. In addition, his latest single "Brand New" just went to radio. He's a brand new artist, but he's already making a big impact. In April he dropped Mixtape: Side A, the first in a trio of mixtape EPs. His second mixtape titled Mixtape: Side B just released, and it features four new songs. If you're a fan of artists like Cade Thompson or The Young Escape, Coby James is an artist that you'll want to keep an eye on.

What it Sounds Like
Each song on Mixtape: Side B features Coby's signature falsetto vocals, and the instrumentation has an acoustic feel to it. The EP feels like a combination between ballad, pop, and acoustic. Every song tells a story, especially in Coby's song "3 Years." It's a song that he wrote for his little brother, and it perfectly captures this blend of pop and acoustic which is felt throughout the whole EP.

Spiritual Highlights
There's an overarching message throughout this record of the love of Jesus. The Bible promises that Jesus will never leave us, and we can surrender everything we have to Him. That truth rings out in every song on this EP, especially on "In My Love." The song is all about surrendering control and resting in the love of Jesus. The last song on the EP, "Try," perfectly rounds out this theme. It's a love song that sums up how hard it is to put love into words. There's nothing else like the love of Jesus, and Coby tries to express that in this new EP.

Best Song on the Record
"Try" is a beautiful duet with a soothing tone to it. It has a romantic feel to it with outstanding lyrics. This song also follows the acoustic theme which is throughout this EP. It's a song that tries to put words to love; whether that's confessing our love to Jesus, or to someone we know. "Nothing could ever describe, but just know that I'll always try/Wrote you a letter twice, ran out of room to write/Thought that I'd better just tell you but I don't know how 'cause my tongue is tied"

For Fans Of
Cade Thompson, Stillman, The Young Escape

Final Word
Coby is continuing to put his unique mark on all of his songs, which makes him stand out from other artists in the Christian music industry. Although I liked some songs better than others, Coby still released a solid EP. You can stream Mixtape: Side B wherever you get your music.
