Idiot Glee is the guise of Lexington, Ky.-based musician/singer/songwriter James Friley, whose passionate Pop sound has garnered attention from all over the world. Though he largely uses electronic instrumentation, Idiot Glee’s recordings can hardly be described as “Synth Pop,” showing a more classic sensibility inspired by the likes of Harry Nilsson and Roxy Music.
In 2013, Friley received a lot of attention for his EP, Life Without Jazz, the much-anticipated follow-up to Paddywhack, Idiot Glee’s full-length debut from 2011
