Album Notes
“Nyesha" is a song about one man’s absolute devotion to this woman of color – his love transcends the boundaries of her skin – and while that’s a lesson taking hold in America as we become increasingly diverse and multicultural, it’s still not happening at the rate in which women of color feel valued for their outward beauty.

Recording “Nyesha”

On some level, it wasn’t work because John James makes the studio experience a privilege. Watching him do what he does – breathe life in to a song – so effortlessly is humbling. His commitment to excellence is something any producer/composer can easily get used to. John James and Joeham worked diligently to bring you nothing but the best of what they have to offer, a standard that will never be compromised.

Writing & Producing "Nyesha"

Joeham remembers the moment it ‘hit’ him: “I’ve worked with numerous artists over the years, but during one studio writing session, it struck me – the song (Nyesha) I was crafting could only be done by one person – John James.”
John has sung background for several celebrities, and that’s not an easy task. Singing background requires you to make the most of several skills, such as the ability to blend, be flexible, patient and learn quickly. How do you ask someone who has been successfully singing background to sing Lead; Just Ask...
John James’ vocal genius can be heard doing all of these things Well. "Nyesha" was produced by Joeham for Hamit Up Productions, Inc.

Note: A special thanks to all the i am “Nyesha” participants for coming out at the last minute to support John James on this particular journey. Watching these women of color rally, forge ahead and wear their “hue” as a badge of honor takes “courage”. While you’re wearing it, You might as well Own It because there’s a No Return Policy..., Lol.

Quincy Jones and the late Ray Charles said it best for me:
Not One Drop Of My Self -Worth, Depends On Your Acceptance Of Me.
