James Doherty


Read the James Doherty Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is James Doherty, and I'm a 19 year old Music Producer from South Wales in the United Kingdom. I've been producing music since I was 14 and I've released two major songs on multiple music publishing platforms. My biggest success is my single 'I'm The One' Featuring Andrew Neal from Los Angeles, which can be found on Spotify:

I'm The One picked up a combined total of 500,000 plays before it was relocated with record deal with Roughmoose Records. I've also been known to do remixes, and my biggest success in this regard is my remix of Fast Car which has upwards of 200,000 views on YouTube currently.

My SoundCloud link is below for those who want to listen to some of my tracks.

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My biggest influence starting up was definitely Tim Berg, most commonly know by the pseudonym 'Avicii'. I had the misconception growing up the EDM was all noise and no soul. Tim changed that in me, and got me hooked on Progressive House. His songs Silhouettes and Seek Bromance were the sound I desperatly tried to emulate at the start, and seeing him perform at the yearly music festivals like Creamfields and Tommorowland gave birth to my 'pipe dream' of becoming a superstar DJ.

Nowadays I've mellowed out, and I while I do occasionally DJ small events my major scope is to become an elite music producer – someone who manufactures a top 20 hit in the charts. I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Arts in Music Technology in University, and I'm meeting some great people and brilliant connections that hopefully will get me there. As a result, my influences have changed, Kygo and The Chainsmokers are both prevalent examples of EDM artists who can make the charts consistently with their tracks.


What´s new right now?


As of now I'm working hard by myself on a couple of instrumentals I hope to find some talented vocalists to perform on. I am currently taking my time on perfecting my craft and coming up with another single hopefully as successful as my 2016 track 'I'm The One'.

For a small time producer it was amazing getting recognition from making a song, and I hope my next projects will excite my fans even more than the last. If you want a taste of what is to come, my track from last year should give you a good hint on what to expect.
