In regards to collaborating with The Truth, James stated:
“I was most excited to join forces with The Truth band in creating this ARE YOU READY? project, because I knew it would become something magical. We pretty much recorded the project over the course of two weeks and it was effortless because the music just flowed naturally. It felt good to work on music and not be inhibited in the approach. I’m constantly evolving as an artist, not to mention I love all kinds of music, always have and always will, and I think this project is the beginning of showing just that.”
David “Dae-Dae” proceeded to add:
“Creating magic with Leela is a breeze, straight vibes. I can’t wait for you guys to hear this swag rock soul! The Truth band and Leela James are SWAG/ROCK/SOUL.”
While Eric Ingram shared:
“So dope to work with Leela! She is a BEAST!! Amazing voice, amazing energy and a creative monster! What else can me and my bros ask for working with an artist?! I’m sure everyone will feel those vibes when you hear these records!”
Jairus “JMo” Mozee decribes the collaboration as “classic Psychedelic Soul in a digital world, a breath of fresh air.”
