Following his hiatus from Starsailor, singer-songwriter James Walsh is set to release his solo album Lullaby in September; an adventurous album inspired by the themes and characters of a forthcoming film of the same name. Walsh co-wrote Lullaby with Grammy award-winning Sacha Skarbek, who has written for Adele and Duffy and also penned international hits; such as James Blunt s You re Beautiful and Lana Del Ray s Born To Die .
A truly unique project, Lullaby is at once both a one off album and a forthcoming film, inspired by Chuck Palahnuik s (author of Survivor and Fight Club) bestselling book of the same name. After optioning the book, the film s producers, the multi award-winning Smith & Jones Films, sought to bring the project to life through both film and music and duly approached Walsh and Skarbek with their vision.
Working from a list of song titles, visual references and notes provided by the film s director, Walsh and Skarbek wrote a beautiful collection of songs, recorded at Abbey Road studios, that showcase Walsh s newfound maturity of sound which is at once both sophisticated and raw; perfectly complementing his powerful voice and engaging the captivating themes of the project.
Starsailor were one of the most successful UK bands of the last decade with 4 Top 20 albums and 10 Top 40 singles.

You can hear Starsailor in some of the songs and each one has James' amazing voice, but Lullaby is a strange selection of songs which go much darker than anything he written before. I feel I may have to read the book to get these emotions. Overall, a truly beautiful album...
I wish Amazon would warn you that it doesn't come in a proper cd case as that really bugs me!! Its the 2nd time I've been caught out like that. Even if there's no choice in the matter I would still like to know before hand. Just feels like a cheap copy to me.
Ignore my ranting though cos the cd itself really is great!!!!

James was lead singer of Starsailor and this is his first solo album. Starsailor were very upbeat, rock, but this, as the title suggests is a more gentle listen. Read morePublished on 8 Feb. 2014 by B. J. Pettitt
