'Home...Away From Home' 

Taken from the debut album 'Running Around A Hill' this piece encapsulates the need to find a way back to oneself when it's so easy to get lost.


Title track from the upcoming second album "Blue"

Take a breath. Be still. Fall deeply your own arms.   

Take hold of your own hand that is always outstretched waiting for you to come home.

I'll meet you there.


Pianist & composer based in the UK. 

Modern classical composer and pianist, for whom the piano has been a place of refuge and expression since a child. Audiences have made comparisons with Ludovico Einaudi, Ólafur Arnalds, Erik Satie and Nitin Sawhney, frequently describing my music as emotional, calming, reflective and meditative.

“Exceptional piano skills”    

Divide & Conquer Music

“He brings pure magic… he is nothing short of amazing”   

Tom Fortes Mayer, FreeMind Project & Freemind Festival organiser


As well as performing at festivals and events like Sofar Sounds, I've collaborated in workshops and wellbeing retreats with personal development coaches, and dance, yoga, meditation and Contact Improvisation teachers to name a few.


I've also created bespoke musical pieces to accompany poets and guided meditations for commissioning authors, coaches and Yoga Nidra Teachers.

"...his soulful, sensitive piano playing encapsulated the atmosphere I want to bring to my meditations perfectly ... an absolute pleasure to work with on every level thanks to his professionalism and attention to detail ... My students were transported to a place of deep relaxation and taken on a meditative journey by James’s soulful playing."
