Artist Statement:

“As I’ve gotten older my relationship with music has changed… in the past it was about trying to “succeed”… meaning become rich and famous. These days its about feeding my spirit by participating in an activity that allows me to express my creativity without worrying about the end goals… without having any real goal at all other than to have fun writing good tunes and performing with people I enjoy.”

-James Brooks of Hemway

“When I went to music school I had a teacher once who asked a large lecture class I was in, ‘What do musicians DO?’

The answer was simply, ‘they play.’

This has resonated with me ever since. ‘Playing’ music let’s us connect directly to something natural and childlike and really helps to keep us young.”

-James Brooks of Hemway
