The Silent Spring
Hebrides Terrace Seamount
“an inviting, contrasting weave of warm, incisive melody and textural detail” (Adrian Pallant)
James Lindsay is a composer and instrumentalist who pushes the boundaries of Scottish folk, contemporary jazz, and experimental rock music. His writing seamlessly blends diverse styles, merging traditional instrumentation and tune forms with contemporary harmony, abstract rhythm, and the freedom of improvisation. As well as playing double bass full time with the award-winning Scottish contemporary-folk band Breabach, James achieved critical acclaim as a solo composer for his debut album Strand. His latest release, Torus, continues his trajectory of experimentation in folk music, taking a kaleidoscopic look at contemporary Scottish music. Originally from rural Aberdeenshire, James now resides in Glasgow.
