Patrick James California Song Launch Shows

Port Macquarie native Patrick James has announced his first ever solo headlining shows for Sydney and Melbourne audiences where he will preview songs from his anticipated debut album, including his brand new single California Song.

“The song is about starting again, making mistakes, forbidden love and finding a new path and following it, even if you don’t know where you’ll end up,” explains James. “The lyric ‘Meet me in California’ is meant to suggest wanting to be in a place where your slate is clean and there is only you and the one you love, and that’s all that matters for that moment in time.”

Have a listen to the heartfelt song and see the show details below.
