"When it's all said and done"

Bruce James and Bella Black joined musical forces in Austin, Texas in 2011 and have been on a mission spreading the word of Guerrilla Soul ever since.  The roots of their music spring from the tradition of Southern Soul from Texas, New Orleans and Memphis, yet they are not a throwback.  The foundation of James & Black is the voices and stories in their songs.  For this duo though, it is all about the musical canvas being the dirt for the flowers, so to speak – fertile soil for the tune itself to grow. 

While living in Europe between the summer of 2012 and November of 2019, James & Black laid the foundation, for what they call their "fanmily", in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Croatia, Bulgaria, the UK and Slovakia, as well as tours in China and Tunisia, playing close to 150 shows per year and covering over 1,000,000km in the process.

James & Black had been on the road for nine years consistently from the summer of 2011 until the beginning of 2020, the start of the pandemic. They have played over a thousand shows in fifteen countries from Austin TX, Shanghai, Carthage, Paris, and all points in between. Following up their 2023 release, “Love Flows Like a River”, produced and recorded in Valencia ES, they are now making their way in the States with a new tune and a call to action.  

“When It's All Said and Done”, the new single by the duo combines vintage southern hip-hop with a message for today. Drawing from their TX roots, the track is a wake up call asking the listener to think about what side of history they are on.  Tune in and turn up!
