Bass Player . Composer . Educator
“an inviting, contrasting weave of warm, incisive melody and textural detail” Adrian Pallant (London Jazz News)
James Lindsay is a musician, composer and educator based in Glasgow, Scotland. He plays bass with award-winning contemporary folk group Breabach whilst also being an in-demand session artist on the folk and jazz scenes. His debut album Strand was released in 2017 to critical acclaim.
“Mood, tone and tempo shift as constantly as the tide.” ★★★★ Jim Gilchrist (The Scotsman)
I've been working on this music for a couple of years now and lockdown has allowed me the time to dive deeper into it. I'm really excited to put it to record with super producer Euan Burton and some amazing guest musicians. I'm also delighted to be receiving support from Creative Scotland's Crowdfund initiative, meaning if I meet my targets I'll be in line for some match funding.
If you wanted to check out the page and share it round your pals I would be incredibly grateful. I can't wait to let you hear the music. Thank you!

In Tune with Nature
In June I was a winner of the Scottish National Heritage & Fèis Rois initiative In Tune With Nature. My piece 'Gaither' which was written for the Forvie National Nature Reserve in Aberdeenshire was chosen and will be used to soundtrack a short film which we are making in September.
