The James Machine is the latest music project of James Moats, writer, singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer based in Asheville, NC.
All tracks here are from the Sour Grapes album, which was written and recorded during a week off from work in November 2008. Songs were written from scratch, instruments performed, programmed, and post-production began all in one short week.
I work with a minimal amount of equipment, utilizing cheap instrumentation, microphones, and VST instruments, recorded into my desktop PC.
The James Machine is the definition of DIY and I am very proud of the level of creativity and quality that can be achieved in a bedroom, if you know what you're doing.
Drop me a line or comment individual tracks with positive or negative feedback.
