James Maddock affirms his status as a fixture in downtown Manhattan’s folk and Americana scene with his new album ‘Another Life’. As NPR says of the British transplant, “his timeless songwriting style, which seems to draw from great songwriters of every era, conveys quiet confidence and lovely intimacy.”
Nodding to ‘70s rock with shimmering acoustic guitars, an understated rhythm section and flourishes of fiddle, mandolin, piano and dobro, ‘Another Life’ bridges the mainstream appeal of songwriters like Jesse Harris and Norah Jones and the quirkier sensibility of Loudon Wainwright. With funding entirely from fan contributions through PledgeMusic, Maddock worked with producer Matt Pierson, multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell (who’s played with Bob Dylan and Levon Helm) and bassist Tony Scherr (who plays with Norah Jones).
A seasoned live performer, Maddock will play songs from ‘Another Life’ at shows in New York City and across the Northeast this summer, as well as at festivals in the U.S.A, Europe and Australia, three exclusive performances at the 2014 Caloundra Music Festival.
