The album will be made available for pre-order 09 December 2014. At that time, purchasers will receive the track “Just A Little Love” as an instant grat track. Hearts On Fire was co-produced by Colin James and long-time collaborator Colin Linden (ABC’s Nashville). The album was recorded at House of Blues in Nashville, TN and Magic Ten Studios in Vancouver, BC. The lead single, “Just a Little Love” features a stellar line-up of musicians that includes; George Receli (drums and percussion), Willie Weeks (bass), Reese Wynan (keyboards), Colin Linden (guitar) and Ann & Regina McCrary (backup vocals). “Making this record with my good friend Colin Linden with such a fantastic veteran rhythm section was an amazing experience,” Colin recounts. “The majority of the recording was done in Nashville during a stretch of warm spring weather so every time I hear the songs I feel like I’m right back in The South. I hope my fans enjoy listening to this record as much as we all enjoyed making it.” Special for the coming holiday season Colin has written and recorded a brand new track “By December” that will be serviced to radio and available as a separate digital single December 09 that will not be included on the new album.
