At the start of the past decade, songwriter Kalu James began making a name for himself with stripped down performances at intimate Austin venues like the Cactus Café. Fast forward to this time three years back, where his new psych-rock-meets-R&B outfit Kalu & The Electric Joint landed a spot as our November 2017 Artist of the Month, thanks in no small part to James’ soufully impassioned vocals and revealing lyrics.
The Studio 1A veteran and My KUTX coordinators linked up with our multi-media team this past spring to revisit James’ earlier acoustic sound, and with its calendar-centric title (written on this day last year and appearing on the next Electric Joint record), “Nov. 16th” truly is the “Song of the Day”.
