About James Massiah

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I remember listening to my Mum and Dad's records and cassettes. From gospel to secular and back again. Fred Hammond, Neneh Cherry, Cyndi Lauper, Talking Heads, The Joubert Singers. Away from home I'd be listening to grime, dancehall and garage. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Dizzee Rascal, Boy In Da Corner (20th Anniversary Edition) Tom Tom Club, Tom Tom Club (Deluxe Version) Zola Jesus, Conatus (Bonus Track Version) Dizzee Rascal, Zola Jesus and Tom Tom Club are selections that offer a cross-section of the sort of music that I listen to and have been influenced by over the years. I wish I could have picked 30 or even 300 to stretch to house and dancehall and R&B Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Soon Touch” This is my latest single and is the amalgamation of many years of influences and experiences as a musician and a music lover. There's dancehall elements, grime elements, pop elements, rap elements and acid house elements, all combining to make this.
