not just something I did.  It was me”

Original Jim is a 'Solo Band' Musical Project from Northwest performing songwriter, Jim Castaneda. 

 Forged from Vocal Jazz and A Cappella, and honed on pop, rock & blues in the shadow of the Seattle scene, 

Jim sets up a solid foundation for his tunes with creative arrangements, tasty improvisation,

strong vocals, rhythmic guitars, a little keyboard and a unique way to the groove.

Check out the listening station on our music page to hear samples from Jim's live performances as well as his debut studio album

Like a musical octopus, Jim utilizes his guitar, voice, keyboard, a few carefully chosen foot pedals,

and a fresh approach to percussion to sound more like a small band than a solo act.
