Seriously, singer/songwriter James Bullard has been posting amazing tracks via his soundcloud channel. Show Me the Way is a new one posted 18 hours ago. I knew he was posting something because I follow him via Instagram. He posted a pic of him uploading tracks. I know he uploaded more than 50 MB of music but I am thinking some are still in private.
His voice has grown stronger and sweeter with time. His music has matured early in his career and I think that this is his enduring appeal as an artist. Never mind topping the Billboard charts or getting to the cover of The Rolling Stones. The important thing is that you got a truck load of fervent fans who are always eager to hear what you record.
I do hope that one day, one of his songs end up in one of blockbuster movies or maybe top rated TV shows, that way he will get more exposure. But I just hope he stays patient through all these laid back lifestyle. His time will come one day. I believe it. With such talent and awesome personality, nothing is impossible!
James Bullard is from Austin, Texas, United States.
I am not saying I am totally partial to electronic music because I love many types of music. But unlike many people who grew up with The Beatles or Led Zeppelin, the first band album I bought was The Human League greatest hits. Of course U2 followed and the rest is history. But what I am trying to say is that my explosive musical awakening was sparked by electronic music. So that means a lot to me. Whenever I hear music such as this one called Project U A bit of fun. by Altocirrus then I get that warm feeling inside. It’s like walking into a familiar territory .
This is a sweet track. The beats are not that heavy. There is a sense of space between sounds. It gives you that floating sensation. It works well with my cup of coffee. So I give you Altocirrus and hoping your day is as awesome as mine.
About the project:
Altocirrus is the inspirational name given to music produced by Sean and Clare McCarthy.
The songs evolve as a reflection of everyday experiences. Considering that we live in the North West of Ireland we experience a lot of different “weather” which you will hear influences many of our tracks.
After their music was played on Harbour FM (102.3 FM) in the UK on Terry Hawke’s show “Hawke Chillout Sessions” to a very positive response and also on One World Radio’s show in the UK “Man of Two Worlds” hosted by Neil Fellowes Geigertek, Altocirrus decided to take it further with a view to releasing an EP and album.
Sean developed an interest in electronic music through listening to music by The Art of Noise, Ashra, Klaus Schulze, The Alan Parsons Project and Afrocelt Sound System. Other musicians such as Pat Metheny and John Martyn are also big influences.
Sean works as a gold/platinumsmith and finds listening to and producing music stimulates his creativity.
Clare is classically trained to play both piano and violin. Her influences are Vivaldi, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Crowded House, Merril Bainbridge and Seal. Clare works as a Clinical Nurse Specialist.
Altocirrus is attempting to build a distinctive sound to reflect their mood and experiences through music.
