Grammy nominated R&B singer/songwriter and producer James Worthy has been putting in a lot of work lately. Coming off his recent performance at Sweet Auburn Music Fest, he is at an all time high in his career.
Recently I caught up with the soul singer in a quick interview to discuss his career, working with Ecstacy of Whodini and what he is currently working on.
Check out the full interview below and get to know more about the amazingly talented James Worthy.
RESPECT.: At what point of your life did you realize that you wanted to pursue a career in music seriously?
James: It all started in New York where growing up I listened to all types of music. The interesting part about it is that, I was introduced to Michael Jackson, A Tribe Called Quest & Whodini who inspired me to make my own music and learn about other musicians and songwriters.
Their ability to infuse other genre’s into hip hop was interesting to me and sparked my passion for music ever since.
James: It actually hasn’t been that difficult as I thought it would be. Reason being that most of my fans love me for me & my music. I think along the years people were waiting for me to release something on my own, but I had to do it when I was ready.
Now that those people are hearing it along with new fans, it’s been an amazing journey thus far.
RESPECT.: What was is like working with Ecstacy of Whodini for the “Move” record? Why do you feel like it has been so successful?
RESPECT.: When can we expect a project from you?
RESPECT.: What’s up next for James Worthy?
