This is absolutely astounding, Claes. What a gorgeous song, so well orchestrated and performed. Your guitar playing puts mine to shame! And I hope my voice sounds exactly like yours in a few years. Thank you for sharing this beautiful performance with us!

My uncle Pete plays this song! Who did the original (or who made it famous)? Do you also do Raining In My Heart? I learned to play that one by listening to a cassette tape of Pete's in about 1995. Your version is very nice, and holy smokes, that guitar playing is fantastic! I would do that if I could, haha.

Introduction

James Tristan Redding is a singer-songwriter in the tradition of American narrative songs, putting poignant and sometimes whimsical lyrics to accessible and memorable melodies.  Redding was raised in the mid-west by British parents, completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and proceeded to write, record, and tour as the vocalist and guitarist for the independent alt.-country group Union Pulse (2002-2012).  The band was notorious for a constantly changing line-up of musicians, and over their decade long career, over 60 musicians supported James in his national touring efforts.  Union Pulse performed over 700 times throughout the continental United States, and released five studio albums and one live E.P.  Their seventh and final release was a "Best Of" collection featuring one new track, and is only available at Redding's upcoming performances.


Now in his 30's, James has taken on the role of producer for a handful of artists, including himself.  With a home studio and over ten years of experience in the industry, Redding is rapidly collecting an impressive resume including engineer and producer credits on albums by Taylor Whitaker, Mark Adams, and Texas Dave, studio work on tracks by Martin Jack Rosenblum, Brandon Patyon-Carrillo, and Marty Morgan, and a catalog of original material written and recorded on his own.
