Who?

tricksy is tricksy, but let's be real: mostly it's me - James Milsom.

I’m a producer, composer and performer based in Melbourne, Australia. I love producing stories with rhythm and the music that finds it.

My major ongoing projects including original music releases and collaborations, as well as various podcast and radio projects for the commercial and not for profit sectors, as well as with the ABC.

I write songs for myself and for others, and I compose musical scores, theme tunes and lots more.

I worked initially as a lawyer, mostly in criminal law defending legally aided clients in Melbourne and Aboriginal defendants in the Northern Territory.
