To celebrate the release, Gardner James recently premiered the music video for “I’m Living Free.” The song is the thumping, anthemic opener on No Strings and instantly captures the attention of the listener with the crackling sound of a vinyl record, followed by huge riffs.

Gardner James says, “We’re hoping the ‘I’m Living Free’ song and video inspires people to find the strength and courage to take control of their lives and ultimately, their happiness. Others can only bring you down if you allow them to.”
