Many years ago Nemo James turned his back on a successful career as a London session guitarist in order to concentrate on songwriting. His extraordinary life experiences since then have led him to a unique style of acoustic based music and the publication of his autobiography, Just A Few Seconds. He is currently living in Croatia and working on his second album to be released spring 2017.
What better way to discover more about Nemo than reading the back cover from his highly acclaimed autobiography “Just A Few Seconds”
Musicians have always been with us. From cave dwellers knocking out a tune on a blade of grass to Romans at the coliseum to buglers marching into battle. Although they have always been with us we only ever hear about the rich and famous and their stories of decadence and over indulgence.
There is a common misconception that professional musicians spend half their time playing in seedy bars and the other half queuing up in soup kitchens, but for every famous musician there are 1000 working in the background making a good living with a wealth of interesting stories to tell.
Just a few seconds is a story of a musician whose career takes him from the roughest London pubs to private parties for the Aga Khan and Sheik Yamani. From near starvation to a Jet Set life in Gstaad. From the brink of fame to the Birdy Song. From market stall to restaurant owner. From guitar teacher to squash and karate teacher. It is an amusing and heartrending story of perseverance showing how the road to success can lead us down the strangest of paths.

I am not an avid reader of autobiographies but every now and again there is one that comes along and takes you by surprise, one that you don’t expect to be as good a read as it is. One such book is Just A Few Seconds. Thoroughly recommended and a pleasure to read

I cannot believe it. Crack of dawn and I spent all night turning the pages of ‘Just A Few Seconds. 4.12am? Says it all really. A riveting read. A tantalizing cocktail of pathos, drama, suspense, philosophy and humour.
