A Concept Refined

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.

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.

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

not just something I did.  It was me”
