Detroit alt-R&B artist James Linck releases first video from debut solo EP.

Wistful nostalgia, of the vein innate to many millennials, is the mood pervading “Get This Money”, from Detroit’s resident alt-R&B crooner James Linck. The tune is newly manifested in a music video, half performance and half narrative, but wholly captivating.


“It’s about realizing a future everybody told you was gonna be there isn’t gonna be there,” Linck said of the song and its theme of disillusionment. “Get This Money” hails from Linck’s debut solo EP, Fortress of Solitude, available on iTunes Friday, Aug. 8.
