He gathered a great deal of stage time as a side man, opening for such bands as America and Cowboy Mouth with various bands. All this time Jim grabbed every spare moment to write the songs that he knew he would someday release on his own record. That dream has been realized with the March 2006 release of Beep Beep Awooga, which sold out online within the first 24 hours it was released. Jim hurriedly sent a second shipment of discs to his online retailer, Awarestore, which quickly sold out a second time! Jim is now playing venues across the country, having just completed a run of dates in the Pacific Northwest area. He brings strong songs and years of stage experience together with his artful playing to make his show memorable. "You have to be a songwriter in the studio, but a performer on stage." He says.
"Every gig is an audition!" With influences from the Counting Crows to Mike Doughty, from the Allman Brothers to Radiohead, Jim offers a new voice with smart metaphors and modern songcraft, but remembers his southern roots.
