James J. Clarke

Alternative // Drumree, Meath

James J. Clarke is a songwriter from County Meath. As a former member of The Ambience Affair and Divan, he has been releasing critically-acclaimed records and touring extensively for over a decade. He has played alongside many wonderful artists, such as Lisa Hannigan, Bell X1, and Villagers, and his songs have been featured on numerous television shows, including CSI:NY and Ringer.

His debut solo record, the recently released 'Hard Work', is a deeply personal meditation on family, grief, and change. Written and recorded at home, while living alone during the pandemic and dealing with the loss of a parent, Hard Work is Clarke's most intimate and mature artistic statement to date, a stunning collection of songs that are by turns immediate and layered, passionate and elegiac.
