James McLean home library music award nomination

‘Home’ Nominated for Library Music Award

I was pretty lucky to have my first published song nominated for a UK library music award, along with an invitation to the ceremony. It was a great night and a brilliant networking opportunity, unfortunately the song didn’t win the award but the nomination alone is enough to encourage me to continue making music. Expect to hear about my debut EP soon, I’m currently working on the marketing campaign which will lead to the release early next year!



P.S. I now have two library music songs published which you can have a listen to here. (Listen out for them and let me know if you stumble across them on TV.)


Play on ‘Nurse Jackie’ Trailer!

After having a subtle appearance on ‘Made In Chelsea‘, ‘Home‘ was used on a ‘Nurse Jackie‘ advert for the Series finale episode.

‘Home’ on Spanish TV show ‘Bajo Sospecha’

few months ago I wrote a song called ‘Home’ with Andrew Willingle, a producer/songwriter, for Extreme Music. Recently, I found that the song had been used in the final scene in the season finale for the Spanish TV series ‘Bajo Sospecha’. Here’s the scene!

The song is available on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/home/id984075998?i=984077238


New website.

Hey guys.. So I’ve just finished building this new website, hopefully an improvement on the last one. It would be great if you could let me know what you think/if you find any errors or have any tips for a novice website designer…

For those of you who don’t know who I am, my name is James. I’m a working musician based in Kilburn, London. I currently make a living from performing as a function musician at private events (weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries etc…) which has been great so far. (Send me an enquiry if you do need someone!)

This year I’ve also been embarking on some writing projects, including writing with producers for library music, co-writing with other songwriters, and writing my own material for an EP I plan to release in the Winter. I’ve begun to play some original gigs round the London circuit, so far at ‘The Proud Camden’, ‘The Fiddlers Elbow’ and ‘Floripa’. I’ll hopefully have some rough demos of some of the songs I’ve been working on up soon.

This is my first time writing a blog as well, so not too sure whats going to be posted on here, probably updates on different projects and interesting stuff like that. But yeah, that’s where I’m at, at the moment.

Thanks for checking out the new website!


Btw I post loads of stuff on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Soundcloud:
