Maps (born James Chapman) is a Mercury Prize-nominated musician and producer who hails from Northampton, England. In 2019, he released his fourth studio album, the lush and soaring Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss. With this latest work, Maps stepped out from his home studio in the English countryside with the intention of making his new record a more collaborative endeavor. By recruiting the Belgian chamber ensemble Echo Collective — as well as a number of guest percussionists and vocalists — Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss. represents a creative reinvention for Maps that features a beautiful array of stunning, immersive and impressionistic songs.
