First, I should say that there has been a BIG GAP between the first blog and this, second one.

This is due to a few reasons.  Firstly, I am just getting used to the idea of blogging, and Secondly, I have been BUSY WRITING which (at least at the moment) is my main thing and is probably more important than blogging.


The deadline is 12 months to create this record.  I figured that I would take the first 3 or 4 and just write.  Write whatever.  Generate a bunch of ideas and sketches which I can filter and whittle down to a smaller bunch to explore and deepen.  I figured that 60 pieces in 4 months would be a good bench mark. I have ended up with over 100 pieces (that’s roughly six and a half hours worth of music), and around 300 poems.

I am Prolific Monkey.

I look at my calendar and I have no idea what else I have done in these last 4 months.  Each day I score off time doing music and my workouts.  I do have a list of the books I have read but, other than that, the big folder of all my demos which I keep on my hard drive is the only tangible evidence of my time.

I will spend the last section of May tightening these pieces up and making little mixes of everything.  Then I will go away somewhere to let the pieces settle and get some space and silence.  Then I will come back and begin the next phase, which I am looking forward to.  A lot.

This is where I have spent most of my life in the last third of this year.


Thanks for reading this.  I hope you are well.

My name is James Radcliffe and I am a 100% audience supported independent artist.  If you like what I do (and can afford it) then please consider buying some of my music.  Each purchase really makes a big difference to me and 10% of every sale goes to a charity which: houses, feeds, clothes, and educates orphaned children in Nepal.

Also, every month I send out a newsletter packed with Interesting and Exclusive Things.  If you sign up today you’ll also get 3 FREE tracks of my music as a welcome gift.
