Bassist, James Bratten is set to release his debut project. Known to many as “Jay,” Bratten has created a compilation of our favorite hymns sure to take us back to when we first believed.
Bratten’s debut project entitled Hymns My Way presents 16 of Gospel’s greatest hymns that remind listeners of the foundational truths of their Christian faith etched in their hearts by Gospel music more than 200 years ago.
Including songs like “At The Cross,” “Precious Lord” led by his mother and accompanied by his cousin, musician and producer William “JB” Bratten, “My Help” led by solo artist and musician Thomas “TC” Clay, “There Is a Fountain” led by Dove-nominated Tammy Trout, and “In Christ Alone” with vocals by solo artists Kaneisha “NeeCee” Trott and Aaron Camper, Bratten fused multi-talented artists with diverse genres of music to express one corporate message – Christ is the same today, yesterday, and forever more.
“I’ve been playing music basically all my life,” says Bratten. “I started off on drums and then tickled the keys a bit, which led me to the key bass. Then, one day, only because the keyboard was broken and there were no other keyboards to play did I pick up an old raggedy four-string bass… and fell in love instantly!”
For the last ten years, Jay Bratten has continued to thrive in the music industry and built a notable reputation for his unique sound, stage presence, and a personality just as creative as the musical masterpieces he coins. He has had the opportunity to play with gospel artists Tye Tribbett, Martha Munizzi, Youthful Praise, Norman Hutchins, and Bruce Parham.
Hymns My Way will be available for sale on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby beginning May 13th.
