The former Royal Pirates member launched a Kickstarter project for his first release and music video in February. Although he is no longer able to play the bass due to a debilitating accident, he is taking his first step back into the music scene with the help of the successful campaign.
“The Light,” which he co-produced with Enik Lin, will be his first single as J / M E S.

When shooting the music video we tried to use an oxygen tank but it ended up being easier for me to just hold my breath while shooting underwater. I know i look silly here, but I got cramps in both legs and got pretty sick after this day. It was day two and the third day was rough. Even so I was driven because I knew the moment had finally come. I didn’t want to let this opportunity go because of a physical disability. It was one of those times where you say fuck it, i’m not letting anything stop me from finishing what i started. Thrashing around in a swimming pool like a madman. It might sound stupid but this moment meant more to me than anything I’ve ever done. And finally i did something for me, and was satisfied. My friends are asking me what’s my plan after this and the truth is there is no plan. I just wanted to make something from the heart before this trip is over. Every day I wake up grateful. Thank you for enjoying these moments with me. Thank you all so much. #behindthescenes #BTS #THELIGHTEP #THELIGHTMV

James Lee will celebrate his new music with a release party at The Belasco in Los Angeles on August 18.
