LA singer and songwriter James Bowers has released a haunting cover of “Creep”.
LA-based singer-songwriter James Bowers has released his new music video for his unique rendition of the popular 90’s rock song “Creep” by Stone Temple Pilots (1993).
Bowers who is a film noir fan, teamed up with visionary Colombian film maker, Federico Torrado Tobón, who directed the video. Combining his smooth vocals with haunting string arrangements, “Creep” is the first release from Bowers’ upcoming EP, Eleanor Sessions, set to release in early 2019.
Bowers’ upcoming EP is a mix of original songs and covers, whose production style was inspired by the groundbreaking strings-driven single “Eleanor Rigby” by The Beatles. On this EP, Bowers teamed up with powerhouse producer, Paul Broucek (‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy) and arranger, Jonathan Sadoff (‘Beautiful Creatures’ film, starring Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson).
No Depression states “Bowers and his production team do a nice job both sonically and visually maintaining the dark meaning behind the STP lyrics, while instinctively adding a string arrangement that harkens to another song about ‘lonely people'”.
Originally from Chicago, James Bowers is currently based in LA. About a decade ago, James met Paul Broucek, President of Warner Bros Pictures Music Operations, who produced his first EP, Celia, which he released in 2012. Together, James and Paul came up with the idea of creating an album inspired by “Eleanor Rigby” by The Beatles. Paul brought in Jonathan Sadoff to create the string arrangements on the 5 tracks that now make up the “Eleanor Sessions”, set for release in Spring 2019.
