"Indie Rock Show Review"

James Guest
KLENZD (2005)

The first impression rocker James Guest conveys is that of a distinguished voice not easily forgotten or mistaken. When most modern rock bands are following the trends of being another carbon copy of BLINK 182, GreenDay, & P.O.D., it's refreshing to hear a vocalist who can actually "sing" and not just scream over rock rage! He'll remind you of such notable male singers, Steve Perry(Journey), Greg X Volz, Lou Gramm (Foreigner), & Michael Sweet (Stryper) that dominated the 80's rock era with their tenor virtuosity.
But James Guest brings back the nostalgia of the style and vocal bravado that has been absent in music since the hair band decade in such a way that is a refreshing change amidst the cliche of commercialism found in most music these days. 80's enthusiasts yearning for something new that captures the best of 80's rock essence with renewed passion will appreciate the music on this new disc "KLENZD"

If your seeking shallow, formulated pop songs driven by teen and 20 something angst, this disc runs too deep for your taste. The lyrical content relays the relationships of family and faith and some scriptural references but doesn't come across trite as much of Christian paraphrased music does. James has a way of applying it to real life in a way people can identify with. The songs speak of love relationships, the struggles, the will to keep fighting and preserve faithfulness sometimes broken. The story of this music is honest, addressing the inner struggles of a man striving to be a man of God even in the darkest times and storms of his life. Unexpected and inviting.

Feeling a bit camera shy


James Guest comes from a small town in Central Texas. Growing up in a unique way he has held to traditional values such as God, Country, & Family.
James grew up singing in church and joined his first Rock Band when 19 years of age. It was from there the influences of bands like The Eagles, Boston, Journey, Foreigner, Styx, etc. began to inspire and shape his musical sound and vocal style. James's vocals can range from sweet to powerful gritty and his vocal range is virtually unlimited. Whatever the emotion demands James can deliver! Today the sounds of the Alternative Genre have begun to seep into his brain as he continues to write, produce, & record his fourth CD. The first CD entitled" James Guest-Souls of Gospel" is an acoustic work that definitely has some magic moments. The second CD-"I Am An American" two version single is a hard rockin Patriotic piece. The current third production entitled "James Guest-Klenzd" is a work that evolved over a two year period with continuity of an evolving process of songwriting that has become more perfected and will be showcased on the upcoming fourth release, yet to be titled, in 2006. James will be giving a three song sneak preview of this upcoming CD in late August to early September - 05. Get Ready! James Guest is an intense individual with respect for Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness!
