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.

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
As a performing musician, writing and arranging his own songbook,
this next-generation artist continues to grow into the sound
of his unique compact 'Solo Band' setup.
“I discovered that music and rhythm was in my soul,
not just something I did. It was me”
A Concept Refined
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.
