Original tunes

Jim brings wry sense of humor and a sympathetic soul to his songwriting. Up-tempo numbers like Gravedigger Stomp reveal his blues-rock bent. His sentimental side shows up in songs like Tossing and Turning, and Strangers Again. Songs like Normal and My Algorithm poke fun at consumer culture.

Charlottesville is home to a thriving songwriter scene. Jim frequently debuts his original music at the Monday night  songwriter showcase at The Local restaurant. The videos below (courtesy of Jehu Martin) are from those Monday night sessions.
