James Fortune just released My Life, his twelfth album, on his FIYA World label in partnership with MNRK Music Group. The album’s nine songs were birthed out of an especially challenging time in Fortune’s life. “I believe that what comes from the heart reaches the heart,” he said. “So I began to write songs out of my own life, dealing with pressure and battling depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. The song ‘My Life’ especially resonated with me. When I began to work on the rest of the project, everything was drawing me back to this song. That’s what led me to call the entire album My Life.” My Life is available on all streaming platforms now. Download and stream here.
The son of a preacher, James Fortune is a Houston-bred, singer, songwriter, and producer. Called to music ministry as a child, the idea of a record label, worldwide travel, an abundance of accolades, and two Grammy nominations were the least of his thoughts and aspirations.
