'You Got a Day' (Addiction) - Podcast
A podcast by composer James Hawken @jameshawkenmusic James talks about the reason behind the creation of the track 'You Got a Day'. The story includes details of addiction, its consequences and ultimately its defeat. The press release for the track follows: Something different from composer James Hawken. James has veered off the neoclassical piano path into a bit of a celebratory vocal outburst! He says, 'This is a bit of fun! A funky, bluesy jam to the drums of Emily Dolan Davies. 'You Got a Day' celebrates the fact that you got a day! I know for some people having to live through another day may not be a great prospect, but at the moment of recording I felt joyous that I had another day, another day free of the chains of addiction and mental health struggles. If I can do it, you can too!' #composer #addiction #joy #celebration #story #inspiration #drugaddiction #alcoholfree #alcoholism #freedom #music #podcast #winning #success #motivational #life #autism #autismawareness #adhd
Podcast Video Warts 'n' All - An Explanation
I'm a musician who has adapted to the recent world situation. I've gone from a live performer in cover bands to writing and creating piano based solo material, mostly in a neoclassical style. In this podcast I talk about my approach to playing the piano and the reasons behind it. I describe how this is demonstrated in my new release with an explanation of the title. The podcast is a non scripted, rough, off the cuff recording, which is in keeping with my piano piece. Recorded after work, sat in my car, tired and jaded after working with challenging students all day (including jacket rustling). This an honest reflection on my creative process.
