about

Painting the picture of a dusty western town somewhere in the 1880s, Paris James’ driving acoustic number Showdown sets a mood of danger, warning, “This town ain’t big enough for the both of us,” in a blues-inspired shout. Featuring a pulsing beat and a trilling harmonica that conjures images of wide open spaces, it’s clear that Showdown’s gunfighter means business. Skillfully picked flamenco-influenced guitar playing add a unique Spanish flavor and showcase a musician of eclectic talents. Despite the singer’s warning, the throbbing menace of Showdown is so compelling you’ll want to stick around to see what happens next.

SHOWDOWN
Paris James


This town ain’t big enough for the both of us
No, this town ain’t big enough for the both of us
Well you better move on
Get outta town
I don’t wanna see you, when the sun goes down

They took a drink, walked out of the saloon
Clock on the tower, rang the hour, straight up noon
Poncho lowered his sombrero, played us a tune

This town ain’t big enough for the both of us
No, this town ain’t big enough for the both of us
Well you better move on
Get outta town
I don’t wanna see you, when the sun goes down

Voice in the wind said I would lay you to rest
Put a silver bullet deep within your chest
You better leave town, if you know what’s best

Now there’s a man laying dead in his dusty tomb
The others just disappeared, with the crimson moon
Now I’m leavin’ ol’ Tucson, and you can have my room

This town ain’t big enough
No, this town ain’t big enough
No this town ain’t big enough for the both of us

about

Paris James Phoenix, Arizona

The guitar-slinging phenom ’s genre-spanning tunes have their roots in the blues, coupled with the flair of rock and roll, the bounce of R&B, and the soul of gospel music topped with the smoothest vocals this side of Motown. Paris’s newest project, out in early 2013, showcases glass-smooth and sugar-rich vocals, searing hot guitar work, and that primal, raw spark that makes your soul come alive. ... more
