    FALLING UNDER SPELLS CD with full color cart.

    LIMITED TIME OFFER: Add an additional $3 and I'll add to the package a CD of my solo album TO KNOW YOU IS TO SAVE YOU, which I made with Matt, John, April, Kelly De Martino and a lot of other lovely folks a few years back. It's my other favorite of my solo records. KCRW's Anne Litt once told me "Bathing Suit" was one of her favorite songs. Just sayin'.

    “James Combs makes Americana music for people who think they don’t like Americana Music… Falling Under Spells’ could become the most successful of Combs’s solo albums. To that fertile mix of folk, pop, twang, and psychedelia Combs brings his undoubted songwriting skills and his refusal to be contained musically by any narrow definition of genre… give ‘Falling Under Spells’ a listen, you won’t be disappointed.

about

How do you explain the unfairness of of the world to your nine year old son?

lyrics

How can I erase the shadow from your face
Take you back to yesterday when you were laughing playing
What about those kids
And the cruelty they did
Why no punishment
How do they get away with it

No human can defeat you
Only you can reach you
How can I explain ruleless games?

You ask me dad are people good or bad?
Well what can I say to that
I think we’re good but broken
What about those kids
And the evil that they did?
Well I remember nine
Sometimes it was a jungle

No human can defeat you
Only you can reach you
How can I explain ruleless games?

No enemy can find you
If he’s not inside you
How can I explain ruleless games?

about

Great Willow / James Combs Los Angeles, California

GREAT WILLOW: think close knit harmony singing inspired by the best of the classic Laurel Canyon cosmic-American-music tradition. It’s its own thing but finds some inspiration in the music of folks like Gene Clark and Gram Parsons. “Beautiful Twang” we call it. But the songs are also contemporary and highly personal - like a box of sun-bleached family photos.
