A few years ago we stumbled across today’s featured artist and became fans of his seemingly natural ability to paint with words. The first song we heard was “Queen of Tragedy” and it quickly became story-time as he used music to construct a vivid picture of a love lost or more aptly put, walked away from. It shouldn’t take you long to agree that he’s a fantastic songwriter, on top of his superior chops on the acoustic guitar that compliment his smooth vocals perfectly.”

A quietly benign presence in a wilderness of self-serving rock and pop concoctions, 'Own It' is one of the most emotionally reverberant folk songs of our time - and a great advertisement for our vanishing environment, too”

Everyone was impressed with Jim's set list along with his ability to suit the music with the event. Everyone kept raving about how good he is! He had a great set list and added a few holiday songs in the mix. His talent and music really made set a great mood and atmosphere our company's holiday party. We highly suggest booking his for your next event!!”
