Fugitive Orchestra.

James Tattington started performing as Fugitive Orchestra after reading a passage in a J. G. Ballard novel.

Fugitive Orchestra makes music which sits in the middle of a bar-brawl between Jazz, Folk, Blues and Alternative, uneasily drinking an Espresso; drawing inspiration from the likes of Tom Waits, Jeff Buckley, Andrew Bird, Kate Bush, Paul Simon and not being anything like Holden Caulfield.

Some of you may remember a few months ago I was working on the soundtrack to a film called EVOL, written and directed by Sam Mason Bell and Trash Arts. Well after a few more months of mixing, procrastinating and perfectionist-ing, you finally you can listen to and download the whole soundtrack here I hope you like it!

A few action-shots from my set at Victorious Festival last weekend… Same again next year please! Big love to Adam Lacey for these photos.

Had an amazing afternoon at Victorious Festival - thanks so much to the fantastic crowd for singing and boogying along!

Today an indomitable figure in the world of drumming, whose contributions to the art are among the finest my ears have ever encountered, turns 75. Happy birthday Mr. Ginger Baker.

I’m incredibly excited about playing at Victorious Festival again this year - you can catch me at the Real Ale Festival Stage from 1:20pm on Saturday, and on Sunday I’ll be playing on the Beats & Swing Stage from 2pm! Hope you can make it!
