-James Enard was raised in Lafayette and got his start with the Ohio based group "Perfect Element". This all happened during the groups session time in Louisiana recording with Jimmie Mouton and Michael Lockett (Two essential figures form Louisiana).
James played an important role with the group and actually wrote their song "Let Me Be The One For You
" while he was laid up in the hospital. He parted ways from them after the group made it clear they didn't want to tour even turning down a gig to open for Prince in New Orleans. He linked up with a fella named Kennith and started Kingdom Records and released "How Close". James and Kennith had a falling out over creative differences and as luck would have it James was invited to play at the Apollo with a group "For U2 See".

I listened to Greg Foat before and really liked his waterfall-like piano style in the Hampshire and Foat Albums. On this album you'll also get to hear nice lyrics and a mixture between folk and jazz as well as the can-like drumming from the Heliocentrics' drummer. Yeah! StrangeFlow
