Hi there James. Thank you for joining us on Deception Magazine! For the people yet to be introduced to your music, kindly tell us something about yourself?
I just found a male black widow spider in my garden.
You recently released your new single “Everyone Is My Friend”. Congratulations on that! How does it feel to have finally launched your solo career after this time?
I wouldn’t say I’ve launched it just yet… I’d say I’m on the runway ready to take off .
How was the creative process like with the track?Did you face any sort of challenges during the production stage of the song?if so,how did you overcome them?
There were no challenges. It was effortless to write and record the whole album. The creative process starts with the songwriting and then leads to the production. I’m really good at knowing who I want to create with. I know how tochoose my creative team. For this album it was a no brainier.
You are about to launch your debut solo album ‘Safe Journey Home’ out October 23rd 2020. What kind of reaction are you hoping to achieve from the album?
People are going to hear a slightly deeper and more personal side to my songwriting. The album is both light and dark, happy and sad. Story telling lyrics with memorable melodies. I can’t wait to play it live .
Having been in this industry for such a long time now, what according to you is the biggest piece of advice that you took away during this journey?
You need to have a strategy for your career that goes into the future and it needs to include stepping stones you know you can reach. Deep down we all have an honest voice inside of us that tells us what we are capable of. It’s a combination of being optimistic and realistic.
Considering the global pandemic currently out there, is there anything that you’re doing to stay creative during times like these?
I’ve written a lot of new songs to be released in 2021. Also I painted my first acrylic painting on canvas.
Where do you draw your musical inspirations from? Is there anyone that you wish to collaborate and work with in the future?
What’s next for you James?is there anything that the fans can expect from your forthcoming projects?
I’m going to keep on releasing solo albums until I’m allowed to tour.
Lastly, is there anything you wish to convey to your fans and supporters from around the world?
I guess I’d like them to know that I’m still just as enthusiastic about making music as I was before Busted first got signed. Busted has been so successful that it’s easy think of solo projects as side projects. I’m making a real choice to give my solo music my undivided attention for the foreseeable futur
