James writes, “I recently released my debut album ‘Polarity’, which is available on all streaming and download platforms, with an album launch in early 2022. It is a highly percussive psychedelic musical journey that features some of London’s finest session musicians and singers. It uses lots of marimba and vibraphone as well as a XyloSynth; which is an electronic marimba company that I am now endorsed by. I have also become an Acoustic Percussion Artist, which means that I am developing anew range of signature mallets and sticks with the company. I am a 2022 artist for the City Music Foundation; a prestigious artist management that will help me commission new music, grant me recitals and develop my career as a solo-percussionist. Two new compositions of mine for Percussion Duo and Electronics from Side by Side Percussion will be premiered in Groningen, Netherlands on 22 November.
