James Paul White is an inventive contemporary classical composer and irreverent conceptual visual artist. Brought up in Swansea, James moved to London in 1987. James is currently obsessed with writing for solo piano, loving the purity of the instrument and its ability strip bare to the underlying strength of the work. Musical inspiration includes contemporary composers Hauschka, Nils Frahm, Olfaur Arnalds, Chilli Gonzales as well as modern classical such as Stravinsky, all imbued with his own new wave and electronic heritage.

His compositions are inspired by a passion for narrative arcs particularly those with conflict and resolution and a cinematic visual aesthetic that connects to the intensity and tenderness of life.
