The  Band

Original Jim is The ‘Solo Band’ Musical Project from Northwest Performing Songwriter, Jim Castaneda.


Forged from the vocal jazz and a cappella scenes, and honed on pop, rock, folk, country and blues,

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

strong vocals, rhythmic guitars, live-looping and a fresh approach to the drums.

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