HOW CHANCE LED TO A NEW ALBUM
This Time Tomorrow' came about by chance. A mutual friend with John Butler's ex drummer/percussionist Michael Barker!
"He popped up on my Facebook page as a suggested friend, I'd been thinking about who to contact to play drums/percussion so I reached out to him in a message to see if he'd be keen to come to Australia to record. To my total disbelief he was not only keen to play on the songs but invited me to record with him at his home studio in Rotorua /NZ."
December 2018, James headed across the dutch (I mean ditch) to New Zealand to spend four days in the studio with Michael Barker sorting out & recording the songs for this new album which included the two singles 'Weird World' (released in April 2019) & 'Gypsy Love' (released in June 2019).
A total of nine tracks are set to be on this album with everything from sweet Weissenborn lap steel songs featuring harmonies by the one & only 'Wendy Matthews,' to quirky upbeat tunes like the first single 'Weird World.'
James has put together an album release tour to bring the new album into the world in the most intimate & engaging way possible. Hi solo performance at The Rhythm Hut Gosford will feature the new album live & solo in its entirety plus all of James's most popular songs from previous albums.
