Music On Your Own Terms 108 - Something Called Eden James

Joining me in this interview is Australian-born, NYC-based singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur, Eden James. We hear about his first foray into music, learning drum rudiments in the school marching band, then picking up a guitar and starting to write songs as a young teen. We hear about Eden's journey to the UK, and then winning a visa lottery to live in the US, at the suggestion of his then girlfriend. Eden shares a lot of valuable insight about his experience as an indie artist, licensing his songs to a major label and getting a number 1 hit in Greece, as well as hiring A-list session musicians to record his latest album, and setting up his own record label.
