Jim has been a professional film composer and songwriter for more than 20 years. His composing credits include the original scores for over 25 feature length films, music for a Discovery Channel series and jingles for national TV and radio ads. Jim’s stylishly diverse songs have been placed in feature films, cable and network TV programs and a musical production for the stage. His unmistakable sound uniquely blends folk, rock, pop and country and was described in the Americana Music Times as “earthy, yet refined”. Jim's two self-released CD's have gathered positive press reviews both domestically and abroad. Jim is also one of the founding organizers of the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival that takes place each year during the third weekend of October.
I’ve just released an archival album of my pet project, DARK SKY ORDINANCE. The tracks were recorded over 30 years ago and they are very dear to my heart. DSO will be producing some new material as well, but I thought it only seemed right to release these tracks that have inspired me to diverge and ride this different musical wave from time to time. You can listen to it now HERE. I hope you enjoy!
Work on the new JHB album continues – mixing and remixing. This project will most likely result in 2 or 3 albums (yeah, I’ve been putting this off wayyyy too long). I’ll get it out this year…I hope. More info soon!
Dates are set for the 6th Annual Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival – October 18-20, 2019. This year we will play host to 45 incredible songwriters from 4 countries and 13 states, on 6 stages at 6 venues. Mark your calendars!
Here’s a great idea…invite me to come to your home for a House Concert and enjoy an intimate evening of my music for you and your guests. I bring my songs and sound system, you provide your guests…voila…instant fun!
