As many in his family will tell you, it was apparent from the

start that Jim would be a singer. He could sing every word

of BJ Thomas' "Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head" at the

ripe old age of two. Jim credits his parents and their love for

music as being his biggest musical influence as they

introduced him to all kinds of music from the 50's, 60's and

70's, but it was also great acts like the Beatles, Jim Croce,

James Taylor and Paul Simon that gave Jim a strong

appreciation for music. As a result, he began singing in

school choirs at the age of eight and continued through high

school. After his high school graduation, he hooked up with

his friends Rafael Zeno and Tom Fussell and formed an

acoustic trio. The trio, which remained unnamed, performed

at a few parties and church events but was mostly just

something to pass the time and enjoy.


For the few years that followed, Jim spent much of his time

checking out the Richmond and regional music scenes. It

was during this time that Jim met Pat O'Brien. Pat was (and

still is) a very talented musician who shared the same

passion for music that Jim did, and before too long, Pat was

asking Jim to join him on stage for a song or two...and the

(W)rest, as they say, is history.
