James Gottry

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

Simple sounds to relax with the top down... grooving acoustic guitar with rhythmic overtones, backed by simple vocals with powerful lyrics that speak to your soul.

Biography

James Gottry picked up the guitar as a 7-year old. More than 25 years later, he has yet to put it down.

"Music is the way I express those serious feelings and thoughts that are sometimes hard to say," James says. "I guess it allows me to hide vulnerability behind artistic creation, if that makes any sense."

With a background of styles ranging from jazz to classical, rock to rap, James uses his acoustic guitar to create a layer of rhythm, surrounded by acoustic melodies that please the ear and calm the heart.

Lyrics

heal me from

Written By: James Gottry

I believe that You can take me all the places I don’t want to go
And I believe that You can bring me out

In my heart I know that all I fear quakes in the presence of Your throne I know
So let me say I believe that…

You can heal me from
this doubt that keeps me down
the fear that keeps me looking in

And You can take me to a place of trust in You
where I am seeing nothing else

I believe that You can take me all the places that I need to go
And I believe that You can bring me through

paint my sky

Written By: James Gottry

But you gotta know that you paint my sky, in all the beautiful shades of colors
And you gotta see that you are in my eye, as the apple of my wonder

Cause I see in you everything that you don't know is so lovely
And I just want to come closer in and hold you in my night and day dreams

Cause you are - you are - my girl, my heart, and I get to be the one that holds you close to me
And you are - you are - the very best part of you and me together that's us and we
Cause you are - you are - the one who stole my heart and i'm not leaving cause it'll stop beating away from you
You are - you are - my moon my stars, and how you shine it blows my mind up to you

Darling I know that I'm lucky you're in my life, cause without you I'm half of me and maybe less
Baby I love that you are my wife, and I'm here until my life's final sunset
