ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
James started out very young as a music lover, picking out harmonies to music playing on his parent’s radio at 5 years of age. He became interested in piano listening in on his sister’s piano lessons, often repeating the lessons by ear after his sister finished at the piano. He was greatly influenced by music in the churches he attended throughout his childhood, learning music theory beginning in children’s choir.

Even as a child, James was fascinated by movie music. After seeing Chariots of Fire in the theatre with this family, he realized the power of music, its ability to draw out emotion, and to help tell stories- or to tell their own stories. At that point he decided he wanted to write music.

James’ musical influences include Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and Igor Stravinsky, as well as more modern composers such as Mark Isham, Ray Lynch, and Hans Zimmer.

The title Speaking in Whispers illustrates the spirit of this work, elliciting thoughts of darkened theatres, quiet mornings, and such.

Amazing CD!
James' music is truly amazing! Sounds as if it were created by someone who has the ability to express his inner emotions thru music as I went through a gamut of emotions as I listened to this beautiful music. It is just what my body and soul need to relax and forget my worries. Buy this CD and be amazed by this new musician!

Whispers, we should shout how good this CD is.
I had the privilege of working with James at a prior employer and was always impressed with his personal ethos. When James advised he had a CD available, I purchased it.

Now from the true music lover, my wife:

James is not just a fine person and talented programmer. He composes beautiful music. "Speaks in Whispers" is one of those rare CDs that's recorded in full audio—so it not only sounds good on computer speakers, it's magnificent on a good system.

All six of the tracks are written by James. They're classical, but could just as easily be meditation or movie soundtracks. If I were to pick a favorite, it would be Track 2: "In the Canopy." The music reminds me of being in the pine forests of Oregon during a rain. Little of the precipitation reached us, but the smell of pine was strong and sweet and the air was cleaner than I think I've ever experienced.

What more could I begin to add? This is a wonderful CD.

"Speaking in Whispers" is a perfect title for this work. Put this music on after a hard day or when you need environment to ease your heart. It's simply lovely. I'm planning on ordering more copies for my music loving buddies.
