3 Questions with Bob Evans

Don’t call him James the Mormon anymore. In fact, pretty soon you won’t be able to call him JTM either. For James Curran, getting to the top of the Billboard Rap Chart and having Number One iTunes releases has been the easy part. Dealing with his fame and notoriety in the LDS community has been another story.Raised in an abusive family, James Curran is used to disappointment and negativity. But he never anticipated the mixed reaction he’s gotten from his faith group because of his music. In fact, it has caused to him to abandon his moniker, which had attracted an audience he appreciates, but wasn’t aiming for. So how can he fix the music streaming algorithms that lump his secular rap music with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Bob Evans with FOX 13 News in Salt Lake City sat down with rapper James Curran in September of 2019 for a 3 Questions interview.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
