Joining James on this recording is the combined artistry and experience of Sam Anning on bass and Danny Fischer on drums, James plays archtop guitar and nylon string as the group explore the textural, rhythmic, harmonic and melodic
possibilities of the guitar trio.
Recorded at Headgap studios, engineered by Rohan Sforcina and mixed and mastered by Dave Darlington the recording will be available on vinyl, CD and Bandcamp from Oct 17th.
