    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. MARTIN JOHNSON, AMERICANA UK

We're all a little hypnotized.



Your magic eye has got me mesmerized ASMR-ized
You spin a tale so sweet I almost didn’t know my mind
Voices from the olden days
reminding me of older ways
Come to me when I’m asleep
They talk to me to tell me about spells
That I’m falling under spells

You play a beat that’s so sweet it’s exactly what I want to be.
Sing a song so smart it steals my heart
and makes me wish I wrote it too
Voices from another time
with slower rhymes and clearer signs
Voices with a wiser line
Rushing up to warn me about spells
I’m falling under spells
Spells I’m falling under spells

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.
