Nashville act Maxwell James produces a touching vein of Americana with folk and country influence. “When It’s Real” is a nice example of his knack for heart-tugging melodies and lyrical sentiments. Trained at the Mountview Academy of Performing Arts, Maxwell James shows a pleasant aesthetic on this track and throughout his new self-titled album. Gliding keys accompany the swaying acoustics and gentle vocals to cap off this very pleasant listen from Maxwell James. Originally from Cardiff, South Wales, he now resides in Nashville.
