July 30, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Almost a year ago, internationally acclaimed folk artist and multi-instrumentalist Graeme James started an ambitious project: cherish each season of the year with its own musical body of work. Today, the charming Dutch and New Zealand singer/songwriter completes his seasonal EP series with the release of the Summer-themed Field Notes on an Endless Day. He says this final EP “explores the timelessness of Summer. As the flirtations of Spring ripen into the romance of summer, life takes on an endless quality. It is a season of abundance, fulfilment and joy, where the days blend into one another and life stands still under the slow summer sun.”

Graeme’s seasonal EPs began last Fall with Old Storms in New Places, which came out in September at the same time as the autumnal equinox. Next came The Weight Of Many Winters, which, as the title suggests, is inspired by the emotional and physical landscape of the winter season. This EP featured “The Voyage Of The James Caird,” which Rolling Stone named a “Song You Need To Know,” saying Graeme “revives the lost art of the shipwreck song.” A few months ago, he released the Spring-themed A Sea of Infinite Possibilities, which he described as “an exuberant celebration of life and all of its joys.”
Though he is now based in the Netherlands, Graeme spent the last number of years building a large and loyal fan base throughout his native New Zealand and beyond with his carefully crafted multi-instrumental soundscapes. His captivating and dynamic live shows are performed as a one-man band with the aid of a loop pedal to layer violin, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, banjo, mandolin, accordion, harmonica and percussion.
