BARBAROSSA

Barbarossa is the nom de plume of Londoner James Mathé.  Mathé’s musical journey started with folk-tinged balladry that saw him become part of the Fence Collective, and subsequently a band member for the likes of José González, Johnny Flynn and Junip. Across two albums for the mighty Memphis Industries, Bloodlines and Imager, Barbarossa has infused his song writing with electronic flourishes creating elegiac electronic anthems that are filled with a simple, poignant immediacy.  Currently working with Ghost Culture on new material expect a new album in 2018.
