Born and raised in small town Ontario Canada, Jim had taken to music at an early age. While all his friends played hockey, Jim decided music was his passion,and a guitar replaced his hockey stick. Smiths Falls was a railroad, and manufacturing town , so one had only to step outside, absorb their surroundings , and songs would literally write themselves. Jim wrote his first song at 9 years of age, and has since released 6 studio albums. His band was a staple on the local club scene for years, and due to a car accident in 2013, which forced Jim to walk away from his home construction business, his band has recently reformed. " I truly believed my touring days were behind me". With a half dozen shows under their belt, the band has regained its old form. Jim now spends most of his time in his studio, sifting through old tape. " I have over 50 hours of demo tape , with literally thousands of song ideas on them"'. The first single "This Aint My Day", has already garnered a buzz, and is getting a lot of industry attention. Stay tuned.
"A sound unlike anything on country radio right now"
