Book Spotlight - Just a Few Seconds, A Story from the Hidden World of Music and Beyond

Before you read the book, take a moment to go to the website and listen to this musicians music clips, visit his youtube channel and see the artist at work. Nemo's passion for his music is evident as is his storytelling in his memoir Just a Few Seconds, A Story From the Hidden World of Music and Beyond. 

Just A Few Seconds is a story of one man’s experience in the music business. It is an amusing and true story of a successful freelance musician whose gigs ranged from private parties to the very rich and famous to the roughest London pubs where playing the wrong song at the wrong time meant the difference between life and death. He takes more twists, turns and knocks than a mouse trapped in a pinball machine but the ending shows how the road to success can lead us down the strangest of paths. . . If you are looking for the usual rock star memoirs full of sex drugs and rock and roll then this book is not for you, but if you are interested in a unique insight into the music business that reads like a thriller then this book won’t disappoint.

Purchase your copy at Amazon in kindle or book format.  

Born and based in England, Nemo James worked as a professional musician and singer/songwriter for more than 30 years. He now lives in Croatia with his wife Federika and their cat Jutko who is becoming intolerable following his rise to fame on Youtube.
