“The music is the star of this album. It is pensive, absorbing, searching, and songs are distinctly folksy with a dominant acoustic guitar, while the others have an alternative sound, sometimes using an electric guitar and/or keyboard. The variety and creativity are excellent” (NEW YORK – Cultured Focus Magazine)

“Un disco notevole per il suono e gli arrangiamente, belli i testi; la voce di James Meadow è diretta e ruvida e si amalgama bene nel tutto” (Modulazioni Temporali)

A scarecrow sight attraversa le stagioni del folk, del rock, del songwriting d’oltre oceano, percorre sentieri brulli dagli improvvisi scorci di luce” (ROCKIT)

“una prospettiva defilata per rileggere sguardi, incontri ed esperienze sottratte al fluire dell’ultima manciata di anni, in un disco che, come oggetto, cerca di rimanere solidamente aggrappato a una tradizione discografica ormai al tramonto” (LOUDD)

“Un artista a tutto tondo, alla costante ricerca di qualcosa da esprimere, un qualcosa di vero ed intenso e che sia frutto di una esperienza o riflessione personale” (ILMEGAFONO.ORG)

“A Scarecrow Sight colleziona un insieme di fattori di pregevole fattura: musica, testi e tecnica. Un ascolto che conquista fin dall’inizio e ti spinge a tornare, riscoprendo le sensazioni seducenti che ci ha trasmesso” (AURALCRAVE)

Between music and anthropology

James Meadow, aka Davide Falcone, is an anthropologist and singer-songwriter. His stage name, with a reference to the anthropologist Margaret Mead, reflects his search for a synthesis between song form and ethnographic writing. He has performed in Italy, Canada and Scotland, opened concerts for Christian Kjellvander, Bocephus King, James Maddock, Brian Mitchell and played with Thom Chacon, Tony Garnier, Fabrizio Poggi, Matthew Lee and Andrea Ramolo. As a podcaster he has hosted the legendary Colin Linden and Bruce Cockburn on his show Where The Lions Are.

Music

His musical roots lie in North American songwriting. Inspired by artists such as Bruce Cockburn and Michael Hedges, he finds his best expressive instruments in finger-style technique and open tunings. In 2016 he began a journey as a troubadour in the Italian, European and Canadian squares, and eventually he performed in Montreal and Slocan (BC). In the years that followed he toured Italy playing solo and opening acts for artists such as Christian Kjellvander, Bocephus King, James Maddock and Brian Mitchell. On October 2020, invited by River Spirit Music in New York, he presented the album with an international live stream then, in 2021, he toured Italy extensively and eventually he played in Teatro Ariston in Sanremo as finalist for SanremoRock Festival, in the Chiari Blues Festival with Thom Chacon, Tony Garnier, Fabrizio Poggi and Matthew Lee and in the Edinburgh Folk Club. He also took part in the International Townes Van Zandt Festival in the 2020 online edition and in 2022.

The meeting with Luca Perciballi in 2016 marked his artistic maturity. With him began a collaboration that led to the recording, in March 2019, of his first studio album. A scarecrow sight is a selection of eleven tracks written between 2017 and 2018 and arranged by Perciballi. The album tries to translate the solid legacy of the American scene of the 70s and 80s into a more contemporary song form.

Anthropology

As an author and composer he tries to bring back in his texts a look at reality by integrating ethnographic writing techniques. Trained first at the Alma Mater of Bologna, in 2019 he graduated in Anthropology at the University of Modena. His stage name evokes that of Margaret Mead, one of the first anthropologists to have stressed, already in the 30s of the last century, the importance of a look capable of capturing the complexity behind the banal and subtle gestures of our daily behaviors.

Since 2020 he has been hosting Where The Lions Are, a journey through North American songwriting on the frequencies of ADMR-RockWebRadio. This led him to interview Thom Chacon, Colin Linden and Bruce Cockburn and to publish articles in the Italian magazines Rock Nation and Buscadero.

A scarecrow sight, the title of his debut album, wants to be the synthesis of these aspects: a defiladed perspective to read glances, encounters and experiences taken away from the flow of the last few years. All this within a record that, as an object, tries to remain solidly clinging to a recording tradition now at sunset.

Tra musica e antropologia

James Meadow, alias Davide Falcone, è cantautore e antropologo. Il suo nome d’arte, celando un riferimento all’antropologa Margaret Mead, riflette la sua ricerca di una sintesi tra forma canzone e scrittura etnografica. Si è esibito in Italia, Canada e Scozia, ha aperto concerti per Christian Kjellvander, Bocephus King, James Maddock e Brian Mitchell e ha suonato con Thom Chacon, Tony Garnier, Fabrizio Poggi, Matthew Lee e Andrea Ramolo. Come podcaster ha ospitato i leggendari Colin Linden e Bruce Cockburn nel suo programma Where The Lions Are.

Musica

Le sue radici musicali affondano nel cantautorato di stampo nordamericano. Ispirato da artisti quali Bruce Cockburn e Michael Hedges, trova nella tecnica finger-style, nelle accordature aperte e nella lingua inglese i suoi strumenti espressivi per eccellenza. Nel 2016 inizia un viaggio come busker nelle piazze italiane, europee e canadesi, per poi esibirsi a Montreal (QC) e a Slocan (BC). Negli anni successivi è in tournée in Italia suonando in solo e aprendo i concerti di Christian Kjellvander, Bocephus King, James Maddock e Brian Mitchell. Nell’Ottobre 2020, invitato dalla River Spirit Music di New York, presenta il disco con un live stream internazionale per poi iniziare un intenso tour italiano nel 2021 suonando anche al Teatro Ariston come finalista del SanremoRock Festival, al Chiari Blues Festival con Thom Chacon, Tony Garnier, Fabrizio Poggi e Matthew Lee e al Folk Club di Edimburgo. Ha inoltre preso parte a due edizioni dell’International Townes Van Zandt Festival nel 2020 (online) e nel 2022.   

L’incontro con Luca Perciballi nel 2016 segna il suo percorso di maturità artistica. Con lui inizia una collaborazione che porta alla registrazione, nel marzo 2019, del suo primo album in studio. A scarecrow sight è una selezione di undici brani scritti tra il 2017 e il 2018 e arrangiati da Perciballi. L’album cerca di tradurre la solida eredità della scena americana degli anni ’70 e ’80 in una forma canzone più contemporanea.

Antropologia

Come autore e compositore cerca di riportare nei suoi testi uno sguardo sulla realtà integrando le tecniche di scrittura etnografica. Formatosi dapprima all’Alma Mater di Bologna, nel 2019 si laurea in Antropologia presso l’Università di Modena. Il suo nome d’arte evoca quello di Margaret Mead, una delle prime antropologhe ad aver sottolineato, già negli anni ’30 del secolo scorso, l’importanza di uno sguardo capace di cogliere la complessità dietro i gesti banali e sottintesi dei nostri comportamenti quotidiani.

Dal 2020 conduce “Where the lions are”, un programma sul cantautorato nordamericano concepito come un viaggio tematico attraverso il cantautorato di stampo nordamericano sulle frequenze di ADMR-RockWebRadio. Questo lo ha portato ad intervistare Thom Chacon, Colin Linden e Bruce Cockburn e a pubblicare articoli sulle riviste italiane Rock Nation e Buscadero.

A scarecrow sight (Uno sguardo di spaventapasseri), titolo del suo album di esordio, vuole essere la sintesi di questi aspetti: una prospettiva defilata per rileggere sguardi, incontri ed esperienze sottratte al fluire dell’ultima manciata di anni, in un disco che, come oggetto, cerca di rimanere saldamente aggrappato a una tradizione discografica ormai al tramonto.
