HEMINGWAY is an experienced DJ, producer, AND MUSICIAN in TORONTO's music scene.

 

Driven by a strong passion for music, Hemingway (aka James Harris) has been active in Toronto’s vibrant music scene for over 5 years as a DJ, producer, composer and keyboard player. He has built a name for himself internationally for his eclectically funky and melodic musical productions and remix work for acclaimed artists such as Metronomy, Bag Raiders, Grafton Primary, DCUP, Keenhouse and Lindstrom. He has released a variety of singles on labels such as House Of Disco, Brilliantine, Stratford Court, Apostasie Records and Toolroom Records, garnering support and remix work from local Toronto artists Cyclist and Jokers of The Scene. As a composer, James has written music for several student films, including Becoming Susan by Inga Dievulyte, which screened at the Inside Out Film Festival in Toronto. Recently, he composed an original score for the upcoming documentary Borderski (www.borderski.com), planned for release in the fall of 2017.

As a DJ, Hemingway has supported internationally acclaimed artists Tornado Wallace, Oliver, RAC, Bit Funk, Classixx, Munk, The Magician, Tim Green, Pelifics, Edit Murphy and Jeremy Glenn in Toronto and in LA. You can often catch him spinning locally at toronto bars such as Bar Volo, The Burdock and The Holy Oak.  He has DJed several weddings and corporate fundraisers including Ryerson University’s Women In Leadership Association. As a musician, James has played keyboards in an eclectic variety of bands, such as the Toronto banjo-folk outfit Scoop Trumbull & The Wrong Notes and the jazz/prog/fusion band Mannerisms. He has collaborated and played alongside local R&B singer Miray and with Canadian folk-rock legend Peirson Ross for his Wild Ones album release tour of 2014. He is currently the keyboardist for Toronto’s live disco band experience: Mainline. Hemingway also produces music as Unsui; his Japanese-inspired meditative alter ego. 

When James isn't busy making and playing music, he is a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and  video editor.
