In the song, “I’ve got my music,” from Marvin Gaye’s 1989 double-album,
Midnight Love and the Sexual Healing Sessions, Gaye sings,”…music is the SOUL of a man...” And with those words, the life sequence of Lendon James was initiated.
“I like to think of my music as a total body experience; music for the heart,
mind, body, soul and spirit. My vision is to create music that serves as the soundtrack of life, love and relationships…the pursuit of happiness!”
