About

1

James Radcliffe is a: musician, writer, artist, and human being (not necessarily in that order) who has been performing live since he was 7.

He makes things and people buy them.  Which is good, because James finds it much easier to make art when he can eat (it’s one of his quirks).

His music has been used in several short films, his blog is read in 170+ countries, people seem to like his poetry, and he has somehow amassed 90’000+ followers on Twitter (which he thinks is probably enough for a decent sized cult).

James believes strongly in ethical business.  He donates 10% of his profits to a charity that houses, feeds, clothes, and educates orphaned children in Nepal, and has worked extensively with members of the St-Martins-in-the-fields orchestra on outreach programs – using music and education to benefit homeless communities in major cities.

He is currently engaged in some groundbreaking new work and will be showing up and doing things in brick and mortar spaces containing groups of real humans very soon.

  1. Hey there.
    I opened my long abandoned trial of bogging after all these days and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that may be I will give blogging another chance because of the fact that when I opened my profile, I found that you had liked my one and only published post.
    Means a lot.
    Thank you.

  2. I wish you Tesla. Not the car, but the work of the great scientist and how his work may influence your music/life. You were meant to bring new information, ways of doing things, into an old and tired humanity, and from what I see, you are doing it well. Frequency. Vibration. Magnetism. Gravity. Anti-all those things, too. Love, Mary

    1. You are very sweet, thankyou for your kind words.
      I hope this finds you well,

      P.S. Sorry for the tardiness of this reply, I’ve just arrived home from a trip to Berlin and have been off the web.

  3. Hello James

    Thanks for the follow! How have you been and how’s your blog doing?
    I created a blogger tips group to connect with all my long last WordPress blogger friends, and to help all of us to learn from each other. I would love for you to share your knowledge in the group and connect with other bloggers. Here’s the link:

    Finally, here’s a blog I thought you may find interesting:

    1. Hi there Greta,

      I’m doing very well, thanks for asking.
      I generally just write for myself and then share it, so I’m not sure if your group is really for me. Good luck with it tho, and thankyou for the offer.
      Be well,

  4. Dear James. Thank you for sharing your music and liking my posts.In these days, as Britain declines and stumbles towards Brexit and reveals the ugly face of xenophobia and racism behind fake mask of English charm (charm is more of an English thing, which sells trips to stately homes and tea-and-jam and jigsaw puzzles of thatched cottages), and as a drek schlimy schnalle, a pezzo di merda, un niquetamere, un fils de pute is a few percentage points from the White House, the importance or words, pictures and music are ever more relevant to convey a message globally, that to awaken people from a slumber so they can see behind the facade of phrases like ‘A Britain that works for everyone’ and ‘Make America Great Again’. Despite what May says, I AM a citizen of the world (and a Francophile), of Europe, of Everywhere.

    1. Hey there,
      Thanks in return for both reading and listening, and taking the time to write to me – you are very much appreciated.
      I could not agree with you more about being a citizen of the world. We must move towards education and inclusion, if we wish to move forward at all.
      I am very pleased to be talking to you. Thanks again, and have a great night.
      Be well, – J

  5. Hello there and thank you so much for liking my work! It means a lot to me to get any kind of feedback, especially from people who are a great deal more experienced at this sort of thing than I am.
    I really appreciate your taking the time to read my small offerings to the altar of the Muses.

    1. Hey Rosa,
      You are more than welcome – keep up the good work! 😉
      And, thankyou in return for stopping by and taking the time to write to me – really nice to connect with you.
      Have a good one,

  6. I think every time we have more in common and do not leave my amazement! do not add anything else! I prefer and I think gradually give your achievements and communicate with others … is more valued thanks for existing 🌺

  7. Hi James – thanks so much for liking “The Fallen” – I’m glad there was something about it you appreciated.
    I’m liking your philosophy and looking forward to discovering more of your poetry, music and thoughts on life 🙂

    PS: How on earth do you find time to reply to everyone …?

    1. Hey there, you are most welcome – keep up the good work.
      Thanks for the kind words, let me know what you think of them. 😉
      P.S. I love my people (and also drink heroic amounts of coffee.) Hope that helps.
      Have a good one,

  8. Hi James. Really glad that u found my blog and liked a post on it 🙂 love is in the river.. ultimately perfect and felt in love with that track. And I really appreciate ur charity work.

    Thanks,
    Tiru.

      1. hey James,
        its a honor for someone of your caliber to drop in on my blog and like my writing. i am a collector/enthusiast of music, and i use music in my short stories, so finding yours via your visit has been a huge pleasure.
        best regards
        f-k

  9. Hi James,

    Thank you for visiting my website! I hope you find a recipe that you could try to make! 🙂

    I like your song “Broken Hearts” — I forgot about the hustle and bustle of the city and felt really relaxed while listening to your song.

    Cheers,
    Wenny

    1. Hey there, Wenny,
      You are most welcome – keep up the good work.
      Thankyou very much – really glad you liked it, your comment made me smile and brightened my day.
      Hope you are well, have a good one,

      1. It’s nice to meet you, too. As I am thinking about it where I heard it before might not be so cool. I often check out blogs on my phone, choose to follow something and with the touch screen often accidentally unfollow something I meant to follow! So I might have just found your blog before. I’m trying to figure out the best way to purchase some of your tracks right now. itunes is the best way for me but is only invocation on there? I’m on “band camp” right now. (Never heard of it before.) I’ll figure it all out. Thanks for the music you share. It’s really beautiful.

        1. Hey there,
          This is really lovely. Bandcamp is for sure the best way for now – once you’ve bought the tracks you can easily add them to your iTunes library, or stream on your phone thru the bandcamp app.
          Oh, and just in case it’s of interest – I’ve recently set it up so if you buy the discography then you’ll get 25% off the bundle.
          Hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything else, and have a cool day,

  10. James,

    You don’t know me but I wanted to tell you thank you SOOOO much for taking time to read the post I had made about the struggles and difficulties my family and I are facing right now with my mom’s colon cancer diagnosis. It had been reblogged on “THEGIRLWHOFEAROBLIVION”‘s blog the other day and I saw you had “liked” it on there. Me and my brother are trying to do everything in our power to gain traction for the cancer relief crowd funding page that we put together for her. I would humbly ask that you contribute whatever you possibly can. Even if it’s $5 or something still every little bit helps. We’re just a small family of me, my mom and brother and she isn’t able to work because of her chemo and I haven’t been able to work much because I have to stay home and be a full time caregiver and guardian for my brother. I do some freelance work online and odd jobs around town but it’s not enough to support our family.

    Thank you SO much again for your time and consideration,

    Christopher Michael

    1. Hey Christopher Michael,

      I am really sorry to hear of the troubles you and your family are going through.
      I wish you strength and fortitude of mind,
      My thoughts are with you,

      – J

  11. Hello, James!

    Many thanks for liking my recent blog post; I appreciate it greatly. Congratulations to you for your accomplishments and your artistry and all best wishes for your continued growth and success.

    Sincerely,

    Jay Pochapin

  12. Thank you for the [Everything is Broken]. A lot more detailed that the little card on the wall of the loo, out the back of the charity shop I volunteer at, that reads: Blessed are the cracked for they let in the light. For humanity we mend holes, sew on buttons, wet wipe the occasional mark and steam the clothes that come in. These then become again something useful and with sales techniques of laughter and honesty, money becomes useful again too.

    1. You are very welcome. I really love your comment, and applaud what you do – yours is a good work.
      Maybe I should print out versions for loo walls. No? 😉
      Hope your day is going well, feel free to hit me up anytime,

      1. After the horses had finished work (horse drawn transport) my father as a young man galloped across the beach of Portobello. I have family up there in Falkirk. Small world, huge universe attending to us all.

  13. Hey James, thanks for stopping by my blog, Side/Dishes. Feel free to follow along – I can’t wait to hear more of your music!

    Cheers,
    Jim

  14. Hey James, I really appreciate your visit and your “like”. It’s nice to know that us less popular artists still get recognition from big – timers like yourself. Thank you for sharing the love.
    Be well
    All the best.

    1. Hello back,
      Your message made me smile. Thanks a lot for taking the time to send it. Really glad you like the track, just wait for the next release – the tracks are like Invocation… x1000 😉
      Really nice to connect with you, have a good one,
      – J

      1. Cannot WAIT! Thank you so much! Using pockets of free time to browse your blog… love the sentiment about why you don’t use the internet as a platform for airing grievances. I feel much the same. (I don’t even have social media accounts.) Everything we put out has a ripple effect… with that comes a responsibility to share that which will be of benefit for ourselves and others. If all people exercised this communication practice, imagine how different our cultures (both in person and online) would be! Thanks again for sharing and I look forward to more of your musings/creations xx

        1. So good to hear! 😉
          I love what you say here and you are right; imagine how beautiful that would be… 😉
          Thanks again for reaching out – you have brightened my day. Feel free to hit me up anytime,
          Have a good one,

      1. Ola James. I have been taking your words into action and focusing on my passion for dancing and being of service to others! You are such an inspiration and those tips you gave on DOS innerview was and is still priceless! Looking forward to dance to another piece of gem of yours.
        With Gratitude

        1. Ola back, dancer,
          This made me really happy. Both, to hear from you, and the things that you are saying. Thankyou for the kindness, but the passion and talent is all yours, if I have helped in anyway then…big smile.
          Wait until you hear the next thing I am releasing. It should be soon. It is, by far, the coolest thing I have ever made and I would LOVE to see you move to it.
          I love your spirit, and that you are in the world. Move well,
          – J

  15. Thanks for your visiting my blog! An amazing chance for me to discover how talented you are!
    I’ve just listened to ‘Everything is Broken’ and I fell enthousiastically in love with your art expression. Congratulations!
    I’ll take my time to discover the gracious beauty of your world…

    1. You are most welcome – thanks in return, you are very kind.
      I am really glad that you liked ‘Everything is Broken’, I like it too 😉

      Have a good one,

  17. Hey,
    Thanks for stopping by! Question: what advice would you give to a fellow blogger who wants to grow and become a better writer? Secretly enjoying your stuff, all the best.

    1. Hey there,
      You are most welcome 😉
      I have been thinking about writing a post on this… You may have just made that happen 😉
      Look for my next blog, and if there’s anything else you’d like to know, hit me up in the comments, or email me, ok?
      Thanks for stopping by,
      – J

      1. Excellent! I’m glad this was something on your mind, I look forward to reading it 🙂 – I guess some things are just worth enjoying privately but I guess the secrets out 🙂

        All the best,
        Roger

  18. James,
    I want you to know how grateful I am that you took the time to visit my blog and actually connect with what I had to say. Without that I would never have found your beautiful music. It has become my go-to collection for calm and grounding.

    1. Hey there,
      I really appreciate this, thankyou so much for reaching out and taking the time to write to me. I am happy that you connect with the music, and glad that it offers you some relief in your life.
      I hope this finds you well, and Big love to you,
      – J
