Jim started developing the music and recordings for his latest album in 1991, continuing with it as a background task to his day job, in multiple studio venues. He finished a body of work off and compiled his solo album ‘The Light Warriors’finally publishing it on Carreg Dyn Records in 2014.
This is a must listen album for anyone into instrumental guitar music. It is composed of hugely evocative, sweeping, thematic music and will certainly leave you affected. Just the thing to stick in the CD player as you drive down a coastal road or through rolling hillsides. It’s also a great thematic album to accompany a glass of wine as you chill out in the evening sunshine. Very accomplished music, it stirs the emotions.
Jim tells us that he has many more tracks and has got the substance of other albums ready to be polished. Good man.
He is currently putting his band ‘The Barberians’ together with a view to gigging the album. Something else to look out for. Listen to clips from the album here and get more information about Jim, his career to date and The Barberians from his website.
