Jim’s debut solo record, ‘Beatbox Soul’, holds a treasure trove of vocal percussion, steady grooves, catchy melodies, lush vocals, electric tastes and acoustic moods.

“I discovered that music and rhythm was in my soul,

not just something I did.  It was me”

7:00 pm

Jim sets up a solid foundation for his tunes with laid-back arrangements, tasty improvisation, strong vocals, rhythmic guitars, a little keyboard and a unique way to the groove.
