Trained as a sound engineer, Asher`s first studio was built with help from Pete Townshend of the Who, who lent him recording equipment.
Townshend also produced his first single Peppermint Lump. Asher then played drums on his album Empty Glass. Following 20 plus albums of library music, Asher formed his own commercial label Lumina. His own release on this The Great Wheel topped the UK New Age music chart for 2 years, and was released by U.S. Label Music West.
A world music cross-cultural mix was next – Globalarium released by Silverwave.
Feet in the Soil followed, popular for both grounding and motivation, has been a bestseller with sales over 250,000, helped by Aura-Soma, with whom he has collaborated over 30 years.This album typifies his music in the drum-centred musical fusion style, while others are more meditative, melodic and chilled as in Dance of the Light, Lotus Path and Rivers of Life. Indian collaborations include Drums on Fire with master percussionist Sivamani,
Bravado Masala with virtuoso singer Mahesh Vinayakram, and Drum Travel with multi-percussion ace Sandeep Raval, who had guided Asher when making his debut Indian project Tigers of the Raj. Regular collaborations with Arthur Hull, drumcircle pioneer, have created ten varied and imaginative releases. Their latest 2018 release Drum Distillery enjoys inspirational input from Adelle Brownlee Brewer - a teacher of Nia Technique and transformational breath.
There are 26 releases by James Asher to enjoy.
