This is a pretty packed post.
There is Video. There is Audio. There are Podcasts. There are Interviews. There is Music, and there is News.
I have been away…
…this is where I was.
I have written before about: the value of periods of incubation to my artistic process, plus, it was just time to go. So my girlfriend and I threw some things in the car and headed north on a 1000 mile road trip around the shimmering and wild northern coastline of the far Highlands.
There were beaches. There was sun. There was hail, and there was snow. There was coffee, there was chess, there were mountains, and there were books. Conversation, laughter, good food, wine, whisky, and new friends. And thru it all The Road. Ever-unfurling before us, like a rainbow black and infinite tarmacadam ribbon of perpetual wonder.
It was a good trip. And I have returned feeling happy, well rested, and ready for the next thing coming soon soon.
But before then, some exciting things happened in the mean of the while.
About a month ago I was interviewed by NYC based musician, Eric Mcmiller for his burgeoning podcast. I had a lot of fun during our often quirky, and supremely unusual conversation. There is some good stuff here. The interview has been split into 3 parts, which I now present here in all their glory:
(Note: To hear the podcasts you can: listen to them in the Soundcloud app, hit the little down arrow to download them or just click on play.)
(Eric has told me that he is more than willing to doing more of these so, if you guys have any questions for me and/or would like to hear more of this type of thing then let me know in the comments, and more could happen. Totally up to you.)
Also, before I left for the road trip the good folks from ‘It Matters Radio‘ got in touch and asked if I would guest on their show. To which I said: Yes. They broadcast from the States, using Spreecast to host a kind of internet radio / chat show and, to be honest, I couldn’t tell whether it was: fully professional, fully amateur, or something else entirely. But the lady interviewing me was incredibly sweet, the gentlemen who was the guest after me was really interesting to listen to (and had spoken at TED), and the video rerun of the show has already been watched nearly 1000 times, so I guess there is some reach there.
If you’d like to see it, Here is the Spreecast.
As if that wasn’t enough, ItMattersRadio made some fan videos using my music to promote the show. Here is the one for: ‘Invocation’ – I really like the choice of images.
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:
