His music is uniquely special. It is powerful, heart touching, inspiring. It is blended of intense soul, feeling, and insight. Even many years after his death, the spirit of his music lives on. The music could only be characterized appropriately as an EXPERIENCE.
Lemon James doesn't claim to be another Jimi. Lemon only claims to have understood the message of the music. It's not about getting high and escaping this world. It is about realizing our place within this universe by viewing it through the freedom of music.
The power and energy necessary to move people, comes not only from the instrument, but primarily from the soul of the musician. The soul of the true musician will always flow, (even if the guitar is played behind the head, or with the teeth, right handed or left handed, whether it is played by a male or female.) The soul is the source.
Lemon James hopes that someday everyone will be able to experience the universe. For many people that universe will be brought to them through music. Because music doesn't care whether you are black or white, rich or poor. Music is something that can touch everybody on this world. And someday those people will realize that the universe is there to be EXPERIENCED.
