Jim’s contemporary blues-rock style has a uniquely modern feel with contemporary lyrics and explosive guitar lines, but it respectfully bows to the core soul that has been embodied in the blues throughout the ages. It is Jim’s dream to help foster the blues to a larger audience. His newest album, Overclocked, is an ambitious, perfectly crafted 13-song set of original blistering blues, sophisticated jazz, heavy rock and tender pop ballads spotlighting his virtuoso guitar chops, creative lyrics and mellifluous vocals.

Although Enigma includes a diverse collection of styles and techniques, the core is electric blues and blues rock. There are pop, rock (and metal), modern country, latin, and blues songs on the CD. But, my heritage is the blues and that is where my heart is. The CD was cut at Studio 3038 in Seattle. Virtually everything was direct to the board. Even the guitar work was soaked and then went straight to the computer. Everything was put in digital as soon as possible. Sonar Producer (with MOTU inputs) was used for recording and mixing. Enigma was mastered at Specialized Mastering in Boston.
