James Durbin is kicking ass on the American Idol tour, wowing crowds with his live stage performance. He’s bringing metal back with a vengeance. Durbin has continued to be a best seller on the iTunes chart and with his new record deal, he’s expected to hit the top ten.
In a new backstage interview, James Durbin talks about his new album and amazing new tracks he’s written. He says, “I’m already hitting the ground running. The stars are aligning, everything’s falling into place. You’ve got to get on it. I’ve been doing a lot of writing, and working with folks. James Michael from Sixx:A.M., Dj Ashba from Nikki Sixx’s band. Tomorrow I’m working with Marty Fredrickson that’s worked with Buckcherry, Daughtery, and right now working on the new Aerosmith record. I’m working with him and James Michael tomorrow. Writing all day. We just wrote an amazing track, we’re shopping it around, and hopefully some good news will be coming out very soon.”
Born under the astrology sign of Capricorn, when it comes to music, James Durbin is all biz. Engaged to his baby mama, Heidi, together they have a beautiful son named Hunter. Originally from Santa Cruz, he’s inherited his rock roots from his father, a musician, died of a drug overdose when Durbin was only nine. What does the future hold for Durbin?
Astrochicks predicts James Durbin could enjoy the same success as Daughtery. Embracing his metal roots, he’s a hard worker, and a humble guy. He wants fame and fortune and we think he will get it. Durbin’s family help keeps him grounded and inspire him to be his best.
Next year will be a turning point in James Durbin career. We predict he will have the opportunity to tour with a major rock act, who will pass torch to Durbin, to keep metal alive. When it comes to love and marriage, Heidi will need to be patient. With rock stardom, comes temptation, but I think their love can overcome any challenge they might face.
The American Idol tour is in full swing now, James Durbin will hit 47 cities over a 8 week period. If you want to purchase tickets, you can check out tour dates here. Enjoy!
