International folk artist Graeme James announces his plans to release four seasonal EPs, starting with Old Storms In New Places, set for release on September 18th, just ahead of the autumnal equinox. This EP will explore the emotional landscape of the fall season, as heard in his latest single, “Fire In The Pines,” out now.
Graeme says, “’Fire in the Pines’ chronicles the experience of watching someone you deeply respect self-sabotage and set their own world on fire. Ultimately, it is an acknowledgment that in our shared humanity the same treachery lives in all our hearts.”
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 electric violin, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, percussion, and beatboxing. His latest album, 2019’s The Long Way Home, is a warmly insightful, lushly layered modern folk album that explores time and space through a vibrant variety of perspectives. Last month, he released “Death Defying Acts,” which will also be featured on Old Storms In New Places. Listen here.
