The title of J. Moss's 2009 record is a statement. He is JUST JAMES on the hyper-energized record, a simple musical preacher mixing funk and hip-hop with an early-1990s vibe somewhere between Prince and Bell Biv Devoe. Moss has got the balance of faith and pop down, announcing a "love song" ("So Into You") with the passion of a contemporary R&B crooner, shifting it to his devotion with an almost-mesmerizingly casual grace. It's a revival spirit that's envigorating and true, backing his place as one of '00s gospel soul's fresh young faces.
