Jim started off playing drums at the age of 13. He soon realized that drums were hard to pack up move around. Being lazy by nature, he switched to guitar by 15.

After years of playing in bands that never got out of the garage, he formed the acoustic duo Itchy & Scratchy in 1999 and played the local bar scene.

In 2003, he joined the southern-rock band Goin' South. With Goin' South, Jim had the pleasure of sharing the stage with bands such as Foghat, .38 Special, Head East and Jefferson Starship.

With his new role in DeepSix, Jim looks forward to the challenge of covering a wider variety of musical styles.
