In 2015 James Chatburn moved across the globe from the small town of Newcastle, Australia to explore life as a musician in Berlin. During this time, James released very few pieces, giving listeners a glimpse of what to expect, while he made music from a small room in a dilapidated old office building, left over from the years of the German Democratic Republic.
 


In the time James has been living in Europe, he has supported The Internet on their German tour, he was invited to take part in Redbull Music Academy’s Bass Camp 2017, collaborated with Grammy-nominated Jordan Rakei, and featured on certified gold single "Higher" by Australian hip-hop legends Hilltop Hoods
 


James has received solid support from Complex,  OkayPlayerIndieShuffleHillyDillyOkayFuture and other respected online publications, as well as Andrew Jarvis on Bandcamp Weekly, Lefto, Australia's national radio station Triple J, KCRW, and more.

"just the right blend of electronic elements, with a soulful and simplistic texture"

"a fierce soulful voice both fragile and intense"

"From oddly filtered drum breaks to brass ensemble swells, it all comes together to ultimately get you moving"

"He blends singer/songwriter sensibilities and a neo soul voice with electronic production, resulting in a sound that is unrestrained to any one style yet remarkably distinctive"

"impressive five-track collection of tunes that explore elements of soul, blues, rock, jazz and electronica"
