The Brian James Quartet is excited to announce the release of their debut album Lower Nine. The independent album is scheduled to be released on January 5, 2018. The songs on Lower Nine were inspired by a series of trips to New Orleans working on homes in the efforts to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. The title track was inspired by the Lower Ninth Ward, the area hardest hit by the devastating storm and the devastating flood left in its wake.
