Released in conjunction with the his new book Fire On All Sides (published by Quercus), this is the soundtrack to James Rhodes’ intimate exploration of what it’s like to be a celebrated pianist embarking on a world tour, when you have multiple voices jostling in your head, sabotaging your happiness and sapping your confidence.
James Rhodes writes:
“So in 2016 I did an extensive tour of around twenty cities in a few short weeks. I wrote a book about it called Fire on All Sides and this recording is the soundtrack to that book. Like every other area of my life, it’s heavily based on fantasy.
A huge thanks for all of those who came to the gigs and to these immense composers for supplying the meds and tools required to put out the fire.”
