My name is James Parkinson – musician, song writer and artist behind One Cure for Man.
Originally from the town of Barnoldswick in Pennine Lancashire, I grew up in a household where music was not only ever present, but also important.
Surrounded by my father’s guitars, eclectic vinyl collection and lo-tech recording equipment, music has always played a big part in my life - although it wasn’t until I was 17 that I picked up the guitar and began to dream of rock stardom.
One Cure for Man is my artistic platform. I use music, poetry and art to tell stories and reflect my view of the world.
To date, I’ve released four solo albums – Serenade the Damned, Gods and Toys, Colours in the Fire and This Eternal Life – all of which are available to purchase on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, CDBaby Google Play, Bandcamp (on CD).
