Nile St. James releases one take ‘To Leave Behind’ video

Soul artist Nile St. James is proud to present his latest work, ‘To Leave Behind’. A one take recording, filmed in the beautiful Ormston House gallery of Limerick City, ‘To Leave Behind’ is a song that tells the story of an unrequited love, from the perspective of one who helplessly holds on to the small traces of hope that the love dormant but present, terrified to move on in case the feelings resurface.

Accompanied by Martin Atkinson, the song is stripped down to piano and vocals, magnifying the sense of vulnerability within the lyrics. Ormston House also lends to the haunting ballad featuring its natural acoustics that carry the music beyond the corners of the sparse venue.

Filmed by Shane Serrano of, recorded and mixed Ciaran Culhane and arranged by Martin Atkinson and Nile St. James, To Leave Behind is the first of a series of love performances form Nile St. James ahead of his forthcoming EP Meraki.
