I am so happy and grateful that I was able to do this Interview!

Today I am very pleased to introduce you with James Radcliffe a wonderful multi talented Artist, a dear friend from the music world and part of our community.  James is an independent artist a music composer from the beautiful land of Scotland.

Thank you James for  your precious time doing this interview with me. I love to give the opportunity to get to know you and your art.

Let’s start with the questions:

For the reader that doesn’t know you and your music, can you please introduce who is James Radcliffe?

I am an independent artist based in Edinburgh Scotland. I make music, I write, I take photographs and perform live. In the last 4 years or so, I have built a grassroots social media following in excess of 100’000 people.  This is what allows me to make art as a living.

Your music has a very distinctive sound and style, when listening it brings you in far away places, almost out of this world. Can you describe your creative process and what prompt inspire you while creating? And how do you categorize your genre?

First, thank you very much, I take this as a great compliment.  It is hard to nail down a creative process, as much of it is a mystery.  I will say though, that there are two main phases: the creative phase and the craft phase.  The work is usually born from a kind of state of mind which is outside of time, when I am fully absorbed.  The craft is where I take the pieces of rock and polish them into something beautiful.  I cycle back and forth between these two until the work is finished.

You just released your new beautiful and fantastic Album ” Murder The Impossible” can you tell us your feelings and meanings behind it?

Murder the Impossible was a collection of tracks that I worked on in a very specific way in the studio.  It took me over a year to get them right.  Each of the tracks was aimed at a specific feeling, for example, the first track ‘World Enough and Time’ was aimed at the feeling of ecstasy I get from truly great music. One of the reasons it took me so long, is because I played all the instruments, including the cello, and did all of the studio work.

Murder The Impossible is the 5th genre-defying release from James Radcliffe.

What is your creative Dream Project?

The thing that I am working on right now.  One of the great things about being independent is that you get to choose exactly what you want to work on.

What is happening at the moment? Are you working on any new ideas? Do you have in plan for any live gig?

A lot of stuff is happening right now.  I am generally always working, on new ideas and current work.  I think I am going to do something quite exciting and new for my next project, which I may release quite soon.  I am also playing with the idea of taking all my music off the internet.

Live performance will definitely be happening soon.  And I am looking into touring options as we speak.

This question is very personal and introspective, I love to ask this to artists. If you describe or picture your inner soul, how will you describe it? And what color it would be?

Like a roiling ocean.  And black.  Black as strong coffee.

I truly loved to listen to Ewian Music, beautiful voice and underground sounds I am fascinated! Ewian is an intense and kind soul with a unique and unusual name, reading his blog I found out that Ewian means “Water of life” isn’t it a beautiful meaning?
