About Maurice James

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. When I was a Sophomore in High School, I wrote a song called "Open Up My Eyes", and the Choir teacher asked me to teach the choir the song. We performed it at events and I then went on to write the Graduation song that we performed senior year! What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Coldplay, Music of the Spheres Kendrick Lamar, To Pimp a Butterfly Ramin Djawadi, Game of Thrones: Season 8 (Music from the HBO Series) Each of these albums transport me to a different world every time I listen. I love cinematic pieces of art and that's exactly how I would describe each of these works. These are probably 3 of the most influential albums on who I am as a creative. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Rear View” This was the first song that I wrote after moving to Los Angeles after graduating from undergrad and so it essentially was the very beginning of my career. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? A mentor of mine was renewing their vows with their wife and "Angels Exist" was played at the very end of the ceremony. I may or may not have teared up a bit. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I'm still working towards the first day that I hear my music used in a TV show and/or film!
