Since being voted off of American Idol back in May, James Durbin has been busy ramping up his professional music career, which officially launches this month. With an album debut scheduled for November 21st entitled, "Memories of a Beautiful Disaster," Durbin will be releasing the video for "Love Me Bad" on VEVO November 16th. The song is a great power ballad with commercial appeal and will also be available on iTunes November 29th. In addition, Durbin’s team has released the single "Stand Up" to help promote his album and upcoming tour.

Durbin signed with Wind Up Records (of Creed & Evanescence fame) a few months ago and there are many fans eager to support his efforts. In preparation for his upcoming tour, Durbin also has announced that Drummer Jeff Fabb and guitarist Blake Bunzel of the California metal group In This Moment have joined his band.

James Durbin was the subject of an American Idol controversy when he was voted off, as documented on this and other sites. Voter confusion, along with potential phone and texting errors may have been responsible for his premature departure. There are many, however, who have noted that his early exit may have been a blessing in disguise, since the top two finalists are typically more creatively restricted by American Idol-backed producers and record labels.

Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and Tourette’s at an early age, Durbin has overcome enormous obstacles to get where he is today, including the death of his father when he was nine-years-old. James has a large backing within the special needs community and hopefully, he will use his newfound notoriety and fame to promote awareness and acceptance for those with autism and other special needs.

We wish the best of luck to James and will be fully supporting him, which includes the purchase of his new album when it becomes available later this month.

    I am so excited my child will now know that even with his diagnosis. He can work hard And become anything he wants to be. So glad to see James is going on with his career!!! Can’t wait to get the cd and see his career blossom.

  2. Great article!! James album launches in just one week. We are hoping that he gets big first week sales numbers. Big first week numbers are good for industry “buzz” which in turn leads to greater sales. We want James to have the success he deserves.

    Time is tame like I will say. When I see all these, am encouraged. I facilitate a child in one of the schools in Nigeria and I see Durbin in him.like Durbin, he keeps on fighting. Right beside me he is drawing with so much difference from what I use to know.

    I just showed him Durbin’s column and the next thing he said ‘Autistic Hero’
    These are special ones and can do wonders. More luck Dublin,more achievement Durbin.
