VIDEO: Steven James & The Jaded ‘Weak In The Knees’

As consummate performers, it only made sense that Steven James & The Jaded would make the video for their new single ‘Weak In The Knees’ (from latest album ‘Baby LA’) a tour-based one. Filmed during their run of support shows for Texas artist Rich O’Toole, it comes off the back of a string of festival performances and follows fan favorite releases ‘Best of Your Love’ and ‘Go Down Slow’.

Steven James not ‘jaded' by band's success

Steven James is a modern-day renaissance man. In addition to his day job as a marketing representative for a hospital system, he is also the lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for the local band known as the Shakedown.

The impressive trio of musicians has enjoyed a notable level of popularity, but last spring, James’ cohorts decided to amicably leave the band because their touring schedule was keeping them away from their young families. Undaunted, James viewed that unexpected change as an opportunity to reinvent himself as Steven James and the Jaded. As it turns out, the change is set to elevate him and his new band to even more success.

A new semester means new artists to interview and new tacos to devour. I met with local musician Steven James for lunch at Taqueria Almeida. He shook my hand and gave me two copies of his self-titled CD with two new songs, “Best of Your Love” and “Go Down Slow.” Throughout my TWT career I’ve never been given a copy of the artist’s music so I immediately liked him.
