About James Hood:
James Hood is renowned as a vital and versatile musical pioneer. His lengthy and varied musical resume includes playing drums in The Pretenders, an ongoing two-decades-plus run as mastermind of the visionary ambient/electronica act Moodswings, and an expansive array of production and soundtrack projects.
In 2014, James launched the album Ceremony, an exploration of a uniquely mesmeric melodic instrument -- the PanArt Hang. The "sonic incense" of this recording spoke to fans of ambient artists such as Brian Eno, Phillip Glass and those seeking a peaceful time-slowing soundtrack. Ceremony was a resounding success, introducing tens of thousands of listeners to a compelling sonic experience, and reaching #1 on World and New Age charts in US and Canada. James repeated that success once again with the release of Pure Ceremony in 2015.
The story now continues with the global release of James third album, Mesmerica. This new two disc album finds James further deepening his sonic explorations, adding additional instrumentation and rhythmic textures to his now signature soundscapes.
