“My vision for Studio Electrophonique is to capture ideas as purely and as untouched as is possible.”

James Leesley is Studio Electrophonique. Late at night he enters his home studio in Sheffield to write and record songs purely for the love of making words fit melodies and melodies fit chords, capturing them on his tape machine. These songs developed into his first vinyl release – "Buxton Palace Hotel" EP on Violette Records.

Since then James has toured with Richard Hawley (safe to say Richard is a big supporter/fan) and played Green Man, End Of The Road Festival and even the cancelled Glastonbury festival which ended up online.

The songs he creates are simple and plaintive, beautiful and redolent, evoking feelings of calm reflection and so saying many of those things in song by night that we struggle to say in conversation by the light of day.
