Minas is the project from Cardiff musician and producer James Minas.

His songs tell stories of a chequered past over a mix of deep melodic soundscapes and loud, aggressive stanzas. Covering subjects from personal struggles with mental health to finding a place in the society we have. Minas alongside his live band are garnering a reputation for their ferocious and lively shows and 2022 is set to be the most exciting year yet for thim.

As a producer James is building a new sound around the South Wales scene and beyond with a number of artists spanning different genres, but as an artist he presents brutal honesty, going against his natural defences to present the most open and vulnerable version of himself.

Minas was born in Athens, grew up in the circus with parents who were heavily involved in the 1980’s Punk scene and then moved Wales as a teenager. Minas aims to create music that discusses these things and ends with an empowering feeling of hope, something we all need in right now.
