I am a third year student at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Swansea. embarking on a large scale four-track EP. This ‘Major Project’ as an idea as a product, is going to be like a trial business idea to test.
Amidst the start of the project, 2016 had been a harsh year, prior to starting Gloriana, had my Nan breaking her Hip in mid March, had my dog passed away in the late in March. In August and September, I had lost my Grandparents. Also to top the already horrific year my family and I had, I myself had been diagnosed with Cancer.
Since from Thursday 27th April 2017, I had the all clear and now rebuilding my life, emboldened with a reinforced thirst in life, I now in any and every which way, want to make the most of what I have at my disposal, and take every opportunity to create a sustainable music career and enjoy!
In going forward with this new chapter of my life, I sought to put the utmost effort I can possible put in ensuring the Gloriana Major project is the best it can be, and the foot in the door to producing music at professional level.
Combining my love in Music and history, I believe using history as a thematic, and story aspect to his project, as well as a future project, would provide plenty of interest for not only performers to have the desire to work with him, but also to gain avid customers.
The developing of the visual aspects of the project will also provide James, with a way of making visuals for his own music, that is easy to make, and effective as a vehicle, for his music to shine out.
Gloriana’s purpose is not only to entertain but to educate it’s audience. As ‘guinea pig’ project, future projects a similar or maybe bigger scale again, will follow similarities with Gloriana but with more radical genres, as well as different points and locations in history.
