Jim Moray talks with Russell Cottier at Edwin Street Studios

 

Jim Moray took time out from a recent tour to chat at Edwin Street Studios with Russell Cottier about folk music and record production.

 

Jim is very well known for his work in folk and has become a leading producer for not only that genre but also a wide range of musical styles. Jim studdied classical composition at Birmingham Conservatoire and has toured around the World and completed two headline tours of the UK and supported Richard Thompson and Will Young.

In 2004 he was presented with the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Album of the Year Award for 'Sweet England'. Jim considers his main role to be that of a producer and aside from all of his own albums he has gradually begun to produce other artists, mainly from his own studio in Bristol.
