Jim, was described by No Depression as “one of Canadian music’s best kept secrets”, three studio albums and a recent live release to date, which you can get your hands on at Kelp Records.
I first stumbled on Jim’s via a track called One Cigarette that appeared on a Bob Harris Presents CD compilation (Volume 4).
A long time friend and collaborator of Kathleen Edwards Jim gets credits on her albums Failer and Back to Me on which Kathleen covered one of Jim’s best songs “Somewhere Else”, he’s also the “cool and cred” in her song “I Make the Dough You Get the Glory” track from the “Asking for Flowers” album.
You can get a listen to Jim’s third album “Where the Bungalows Roam” here
What “they” are saying.
“the melodic succinctness of the band’s debut album Trace”
“his finest work yet”
“rarely does a musical work do powerfully capture the zeitgeist of it’s historical moment, while also honoring the traditions of rock & roll with such rawboned grace”
