This Monday Coffee House Sessions will see another star performance from hit singer James McLaren .

James McLaren has just recorded his debut EP with award winning producer and Communion partner Ian Grimble (The 1975, Travis, Michael Kiwanuka, Manics).

James is a gifted and gripping storyteller. His vocals hint at classic English songwriters such as John Martyn and contemporary peers such as Bon Iver and Ben Howard. His musical tools on this record are choral backing harmonies, a lazy swing rhythm section and lyrics which elegantly tell tales of an observer processing confusing signals and seeing what can be learned.

All recorded in the Crypt Studios which lends a fresh, haunting atmosphere to the record.
