Insanely. Great.

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? ;-)

What did you think?


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:

    I want to expose my readers to this emerging transitional consciousness so you can hear what reaching for a higher stage it self-awareness can sounds like…bob

  2. The feeling when you expect nothing and receive something that perfectly matches your idea, even when you didn’t know you had it, is beyond comparison. Congratulations on the perfect video :)

  3. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this
    fantastic blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.
    Chat soon!

  4. I think that what you published was actually very reasonable.
    However, think about this, what if you were to create a awesome title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog,
    however what if you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Insanely.
    Great. | JamesRadcliffe.com is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and note
    how they create article titles to get people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what
    you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would make
    your posts a little bit more interesting.
