Ireland’s house-music prodigy, Lee James, continues his astonishing ascendance with his release ‘Waiting For Tonight’. Lee James new single
Lee, the fifteen-year-old DJ from Limerick city, is living his dream. The Limerick native signed his first record deal in 2019 with Open House Record on his debut single ‘Giving Up on Love’. Having recently signed a record deal with BLINDsided Records, home to John Gibbons, Martin Guilfoyle and many more with his track ‘Do You Feel What I’m Feeling’, the Limerick teen, who is a third-year student at St. Clements College, discovered his talent and passion for music production at a young age, fascinated by music and eager to help the DJ at any opportunity. Since then, Lee has made a name for himself as a young and talented DJ and producer, but this is just the beginning for him
Having started producing at the age of just 13, the Limerick-based producer has been gaining huge ground over the past year and now looks primed to make the breakthrough his ability deserves with this huge crossover piano-house number!
Lee James has teamed up with Libby Sunter, a singer, songwriter from Liverpool on their forthcoming release waiting for tonight. They have taken the concept from Jenifer Lopez’s smash hit and have totally reworked it into a tropical house track! The track is already gaining massive support from DJ’s and Radios such as Spin SW/1038.
Lee said, “I was always eager to rework a classic hit and I felt that ‘Waiting for Tonight’ was the one for this. I posted an advertisement on my Instagram looking for a singer and that’s where I met Libby Sunter. I was amazed with her voice and knew that she was the one for this track. We started chatting about the track and Libby sent over a demo vocal. I made a few tweaks to my original demo to make the track suit Libbys vocal even more. We both agreed that the instrumental was ready and then we started to finalise the vocals. Libby recorded harmonies, main hooks and many more factors to make it sound perfect I am so proud of the finished song!”
Lee adds, “My dream is to have a number 1 hit song and to perform at many big venues with other artists such as John Gibbons. I would also love to have my own show on a commercial radio station such as Spin SW or RTE 2FM.”
The track is set to release on June 5 to all music streaming platforms and the spectacular lyric video will premiere on the YouTube channel of Vibe Records (UK).
