‘Somewhere In-Between’ new album by Jim Ottaway at Peaceful Radio Internet Station
21 June 2022 Artists
Australian electronic musician and composer, Jim OƩaway, has just released his new electronic album…
Jim says that SOMEWHERE IN-BETWEEN follows on from some of his more recent electronic albums
including WHEN ETERNITY TOUCHES TIME and TIMELESS e-MOTION, both of which were awarded Best
Electronic Album at the Zone Music Reporter Awards in New Orleans in 2018 and 2021 respecƟvely.
Jim’s new album consists of eleven tracks all focusing on that special place in-between heaven and
earth… a place of love and Ɵmelessness… a place of intrigue and uncertainty… a place of promise and
the future. As with Jim’s other electronic albums he covers many sub-genres of electronic music in this
album including a touch of Berlin school, melodic electronic and ambient, and some pure EM.
Jim explains that the tracks on this album were chosen from many hours of recorded music he has in
his music vaults. Some tracks were composed and recorded as early as 2008. However, all tracks had
addiƟonal recordings added in the last six months, while this album was being produced. Recording and
producƟon were completed in April 2022. Jim composes and records all his music in his home studio
situated at the foothills of the beauƟful Springbrook Mountain on the Gold Coast, Australia.
Each of Jim’s last nine albums… THRESHOLD OF THE UNIVERSE, WHEN ETERNITY TOUCHES TIME,
BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION, BEYOND THE PURPLE SUN, YESTERDAY PASSING, DEEP SPACE BLUE, TIMELESS
e-MOTION, SOUTHERN CROSS and INVISIBLE VORTEX received nominaƟons in world-wide music
awards. In July 2021, Jim was awarded Best Electronic Album for his album WHEN ETERNITY TOUCHES
TIME at the 17th Annual Zone Music Reporter (ZMR) Awards in New Orleans, USA. Jim was also awarded
two awards at the 14th Annual ZMR Awards in 2018 for his albums DEEP SPACE BLUE (Best Ambient
Album) and TIMELESS e-MOTION (Best Electronic Album). Jim has also received ZMR Album of the Year
nominaƟons for WHEN ETERNITY TOUCHES TIME and DEEP SPACE BLUE.
