The B-Side: James Lockhart Jr.

“Long Life” by James Lockart Jr. ebbs and flows like the flow of time itself, which given the subject matter is fitting. Sometimes a steady march, sometimes a long contemplative pause, and through it all a kind of knowing nod, beautiful and perhaps a bit wistful. Lockhart’s vocals carry the same gorgeous melancholy as Loren Beri, that sophisticated blend of Chris Martin’s heart on sleeve approach and Rufus Wainwright’s urbane detachment. This song feels like contentment after a long journey; one with challenges and disappointments but also grace and humor.
