Andrew James: Web designer that crowd funded first album (and it rocks)

Back in 2008 Andrew James ditched his career in web design and has been resolutely plucking away at a career in music ever since. He got some attention with a colab with Gary Thomas called Cabins in the Forest, a few years back and has since gone solo. In 2010, Aron-Turest Swartz (previously of Freshlyground) introduced him to James Van Minnen, and they ended up working with Aron on their first album, Red in Tooth and Claw. We spoke to Andrew James about money, art and being a swamp folk, roots rock outfit, steeped in americana-influences while living in Vredehoek.
