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.

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.


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.
