80´s CCM with touch of west coast…

James Felix was born on July 14, 1951 in San Bernardino, California USA. He started his professional music career as the member of CCM group named “Psalm 150” which Bob Carlile had belonged in early 70s. During mid / late 70’s , James Felix performed and participated as a bass player and/or a vocalist in the recording sessions of Andrae Crouch’s several albums such as “This Is Another Day” (1976), “Live In London”(1978) and “I’ll Be Thinking Of You” (1979) released under Light Records USA.

These works brought James the chance to release his own solo album under the label. Thus, “White As Snow” was completed with excellent musicians in the CCM field of those days such as Hadey Hockensmith and Bill Maxwell and young Louis Pardini (aka Lou Pardini).

Recently his name could be found as a songwriter on Bryan Duncan’s albums.

This James Felix’s album is one of the very good early 80’s CCM album as well as Roby Duke’s albums.
