James, who is embarking on a solo career, left home for a trip to LA last week and he's wasted no time in recording some music stateside.
On Sunday (17 April), James shared a photo with fans of him and Rodney in a car and in a studio. He captioned the snaps: "To be the best... You have to work with the best.. What a blessing this week has been so far!! @RodneyJerkins."
And it looks like there are more recording sessions in the pipeline, as Rodney replied: "@itsjamesgraham We're just getting started!"
Musician, producer and songwriter Rodney, also known as Darkchild, is the man behind Lady Gaga's 'Telephone', Michael Jackson's 'You Rock My World', Brandy and Monica's 'The Boy Is Mine' and the Spice Girls' 'Holler', to name a few.
Pretty impressive, right?
X Factor group Stereo Kicks announced their split in July last year after releasing just one single. But James didn't go unnoticed during the competition, with the judges often praising him for his lead vocals.
Although Stereo Kicks are no more, some of the boys recently reunited to watch former band member Reece Bibby perform in his new group, New Hope Club, who are supporting The Vamps on tour.
