ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This is what music should be about. Unfiltered communication." God Is In The TV

"The haunting and beautiful songs - perfectly suited to James' weird and wonderful voice - weave their spell." The Music Fix

"In a saturated singer-songwriter market, James' originality deserves to separate him from the pack." The Skinny

"James really is the real deal" Maverick

"Robin's vocals are androgynous, ethereal - almost a late-night whisper - and haunting."
Acoustic Magazine

"'Saint Jude' is an extraordinary collection of songs from an equally extraordinary musician."
Penny Black Music

Saint Jude is the debut album of Robin James, recorded at Toe Rag Studios, Hackney, in just a few hours, the day he left London to live in Yorkshire. The album was recorded with one microphone, for all but one song, straight on to tape. “I wanted the process of recording to reflect the album. The songs are about brokenness, uncertainty and letting go, which are reflected, in the raw, limited and exposed approach. The temptations to edit and manipulate the songs are taken away when recording onto tape, which is both liberating and slightly frightening. But as Leonard Cohen sings – ‘forget your perfect offering; there is a crack, a crack in everything; that’s how the light gets in’.” Robin’s fragile, yet powerful, voice, and carefully crafted lyrics, draw the listener into a world full of paradox, vulnerability and unknowing, where light and darkness coexist.
