I am buried, deep and hard in a bunch of beautiful work, and had no plans to post until next week.
But then, something INCREDIBLE happened. Something that literally BLEW ME AWAY. And I couldn’t help myself. I HAD to share it…
…A little while ago, a friend of mine who had really connected with my album said, “I think I’m going to make a video for you”. I remember thinking: ‘that’s nice’. Then I forgot about it.
Cut to: 2 months later. My friend sends me a text that simply reads: ‘Video done, tell me what you think’. I cued it up thinking that I’d watch a little of it, then get back to work.
5 mins later, I was sitting, staring into space. Literally, stunned into silence.
If I had commissioned a video; if I had paid someone to make it; or even if I had make it myself; I don’t think I could have made it any better.
Do not misunderstand me. It is not a slick pop video, made with super high tech, melt your face off equipment. It is lo-fi, and gorgeous. And perfect. For me, it’s literally, perfect.
Would you like to see it? ;-)

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.
And lastly, if you’d like to find out what I’m up to on a more day-to-day basis then here is my brain on Twitter:
