James Chadwick

Guitarist James Chadwick approaches his music in a distinctive and thoughtful way, blending ever evolving melodic lines with inventive and measured harmonic treatment.

He makes standard tunes sound very fresh by leaving lots of space and creating unexpected textures. His superbly presented debut album “Undercurrent” displays his own inimitable style. -
