James Righton: biography

James Righton is the founder and vocalist of the British indie rock group Klaxons. The band formed in 2005 and split up in 2014; they gave the last concerts supporting the new album and ceased to exist. Since that time, James Righton has been developing his career as a solo artist Shock Machine.

Childhood and youth

The future musician was born on August 25, 1983, in Stratford-upon-Avon, the home town of William Shakespeare.

There is little information about the singer’s childhood. James’s father was a musician, and his son followed in his footsteps: he graduated from a music school and devoted his life to the stage.

As soon as Righton finished school, he continued his education at Cardiff University and studied Politics and Spanish for a couple of months. However, he decided to move to Madrid. The young man met Simon Taylor-Davis there, and the artists founded the group Klaxons.

Music

The Klaxons members came forward as a groundbreaking rock group from the first track. Their star shone brightly and mesmerized music lovers, critics, and colleagues. Muse invited them to collaborate, and BBC DJs were eager to interview Klaxons.

The band’s music genre could hardly be determined. Eventually, the young men cooked the term “new rave”; they did not expect it to become the actual name of the new genre.

In 2006, the musicians recorded the debuting single “Gravity’s Rainbow”. The BBC DJ Steve Lamacq got one of its 500 copies and broadcast it on the radio. In a blink of an eye, New Musical Express magazine sang the praises to Klaxons, and Polydor Records that had taken care of The Beatles invited a contract. The artists signed the agreement and presented the new track, “Atlantis To Interzone”; they started giving a lot of concerts.

The debuting album, Myths of the Near Future, consisted of hits and appeared in 2007. Critics unanimously called it the best release of the year and gave the group the NME Awards for Best New Band.

Six months later, in July 2007, Klaxons announced the work on the second album; fans had to wait three years. Righton and his colleagues also released new songs at that period: “Valley of the Calm Trees”, “Moonhead”, “Imaginary Pleasures”, and “In Silver Forest”.

The album was postponed, though: by March 2009, a part of the material had to be re-recorded because the label believed its sounding was too rough. Thus, Surfing The Void came out in August 2010.

The third disc, Love Frequency, was released in June 2014. Not only had the number of the group’s fans decreased, but the genre changes shocked people. It was nothing like the previous albums: indie rock transformed into indie pop, and punk funk was forgotten. The third work was the lightest and most electronic one: unsophisticated tunes were accompanied by James’s clear, sweet voice. After the album failed, Klaxons split up, and Righton began his solo project, Shock Machine.

Personal life

Journalists paid attention to the British musician’s personal life when the rumors about his romance with the actress Keira Knightley appeared.

The couple met in 2011 at a party. Later, Keira confessed to journalists she had not even heard about the group Klaxons at that time and did not know who James Righton was. Still, this fact did not prevent the musician from conquering Knightley’s heart.

The young people had much in common: they watched soccer matches after work, had lunch in a café, and rested on the grass in London parks. Keira did not think about that relationship much: she just enjoyed the good time together.

Three months later, the singer showed his intentions were serious. When the actress’s brother, Caleb, married, Keira mentioned she was going to the wedding ceremony, and James told her he would like to accompany her there. The vocalist was not afraid of meeting the whole family of his girlfriend.

Righton’s proposal was a surprise for Keira. She did not want to get married, as it had been with her previous partner, Rupert Friend. However, the musician got the long-awaited “yes”.

The wedding took place in 2013 in southern France, where the actress had her own house. It was a chamber ceremony: only eleven guests were invited. Instead of having a luxurious dress, Knightley preferred the tender Chanel dress that she had worn in 2008 on a red carpet.

A couple of months later, the press started talking about Keira’s probable pregnancy; the spouses gave no comments. James took care of his wife and her emotional health. Whenever journalists asked him about a child, he would change the subject immediately.

Besides, the actress did not see herself as a mother and felt nervous about childbirth. The household troubles were the last straw: the lovers were preparing a baby room for a long time.

Despite all the ordeals, James and Keira’s daughter Edie was born on May 25, 2015. The celebrities did not reveal the child’s sex for a couple of months, but the paparazzi managed to take a picture of the happy family. By now, Righton and Knightley are not going to have another baby.

Present days

In August 2017, the former frontman of Klaxons presented the debuting album of his solo project, Shock Machine. The disc consisted of ten tracks; both critics and ordinary listeners appreciated it. The music videos “Unlimited Love”, “Open Up The Sky”, “Lost in the Mystery”, and “Let Her Love In” came out.

Today, Keira Knightley’s husband records new hits and gives concerts all over the globe. He shares pictures from his shows and studio photos on Instagram.

James Righton’s net worth is $50 million in 2019.

‘Shock Machine’ is the first single taken from James Righton’s new project Shock Machine.

The video was created by incredible video artist and director Saam Farahmand.
In his own words, ‘This video is a direct symbol of spiritual transition, and the influence of (late artist) Angus Fairhurst’s absent human cutouts. Transition is synonymous with James and Shock Machine. Everything felt right when we were shooting it.’
Farahmand’s video was shot on the Los Angeles coast in 2015 with Star Wars cinematographer Dan Mindel, and sensitive visual effects from ETC London.

LYRICS
Summer days
That we once knew
Felt like nothing
Because of you
And all the clouds
Turn into blue
And all the sounds
Keep breaking through
Keep breaking through
Will you follow?
Will you follow me?
What do you need
From the shock machine?
Will you follow me
To the shock machine
To the shock machine
To the shock machine
And summer days
That we once knew
See them running
Away from you
And silver clouds
Turn into blue
As all the sounds
Keep breaking through
Keep breaking through
Will you follow?
Will you follow me?
What do you need
From the shock machine?
Will you follow me
To the shock machine?
To the shock machine
To the shock machine
But do we need the shock machine
But do we need the shock machine
But do we need the shock machine
But do we need the shock machine
To lead us to our future
Lead us to our future
But do we need the shock machine?

James Righton – Edie


DEEWEE036 James Righton ‘Edie’
PREORDER LP: https://smarturl.it/jr_the_performer
After coming to prominence as the frontman of the Mercury Prizewinning Klaxons, recording with Arctic Monkeys, and crafting his Shock Machine project, James Righton is set to release his debut solo album ‘The Performer’ on March 20th, 2020.
Righton shares the album’s second single, ‘Edie’, an ode to his young daughter.
“Edie is a song I wrote for my daughter when she was a baby,” Righton explains. “She seemed so fragile and small in a world that seemed so big and terrifying. I wanted to tell her that everything would be ok”.
The Performer LP stands in stark contrast to the electrohedonism of Righton’s work with Klaxons. Instead, it spins through various points from 1970 onwards. It touches on the suave artlounge of Roxy Music, the jangly grooves of R.E.M., the sumptuous psychedelia of latterday Beach Boys, and the song writing gift of Nick Lowe. In short, it uses classic elements as the groundwork for something which feels a natural fit for 2019.
It was recorded at a handful of locations, notably Righton’s home studio, Bryan Ferry’s Studio One. It was subsequently mixed by David and Stephen Dewaele (Soulwax/2manydjs) at DEEWEE in Ghent, Belgium.

James Righton – The Performer


DEEWEE036 James Righton ‘The Performer’
PREORDER: https://smarturl.it/jr_the_performer
After coming to prominence as the frontman of the Mercury Prizewinning Klaxons, recording with Arctic Monkeys, and crafting his Shock Machine project, James Righton is now set to release his debut solo album ‘The Performer’ on March 20th, 2020.
‘The Performer’ stands in stark contrast to the electrohedonism of Righton’s work with Klaxons. Instead, it spins through various points from 1970 onwards. It touches on the suave artlounge of Roxy Music, the jangly grooves of R.E.M., the sumptuous psychedelia of latter day Beach Boys, and the songwriting gift of Nick Lowe. In short, it uses classic elements as the groundwork for something which feels a natural fit for 2019.
Those influences permeate the album’s title track and lead single. On one hand, it’s an existential dilemma of trying to reconcile the flamboyance of being an artist with the mundanity of family life. On the other, it’s escapist – slipping into another identity allows them to coexist without one overruling the other.
As Righton questions, “Am I this showman up on stage? Or am I the dad changing nappies? Am I living in the moment and doing something enjoyable? Or am I fucking miserable? I find that really interesting: this idea of putting on a suit and becoming this other thing.”
Visually, the project finds Righton playing up the role of ‘The Performer’ as depicted in the title track’s video. Filmed by Hugo Campan at DEEWEE, it’s a stylized take on perennial glamour – Righton’s charismatic performance matched by his classic white Gucci suit and an array of vintage equipment. It will also form the basis for the stage set for his upcoming shows in support of the album.
“I was really interested in the idea of using a live performance as the basis for a music video,” explains Hugo. “We even recorded James’ performance of the song to use to make it as close as possible to his live show. I wanted the video to delve into what music is at its most existential point: a human performance and a live experience. James is a great showman. He has so much energy, attitude and style. We filmed 43 consecutive takes to create something unique, and by the end of the process it drifted into a kind of abstract, surreal MTV performance.”
It was recorded at a handful of locations, notably Righton’s home studio, Bryan Ferry’s Studio One. It was subsequently mixed by David and Stephen Dewaele at DEEWEE in Ghent, Belgium.
