Jim Gilmour began writing songs in earnest in 1998 after many years of music industry experience supporting other artists. His lyrics – sometimes veiled, sometimes chillingly frank – are composed from the everyday subjects of life: the temptations of addiction, love and love lost, and the power of connection.
Jim contributed a track – “Hour in Texarkana” – to the benefit CD “TOO MANY YEARS: A Benefit for Clear Path International”. Other artists featured on this album include Natalie Merchant, Juliana Hatfield, Jorma Kaukonen, Widespread Panic and The Samples. Copies of this CD can be purchased online at http://www.cpi.org/toomany.php.
He is a bassist and backing vocalist for other performing acts on the road and in the studio. He has worked with artists such as John Flynn, James Mee, Kort & Beth McCumber, Rick Redington, jam band Foxtrot Zulu, and many local and regional acts including the Celtic band, Wind That Shakes the Barley.
He has shared the bill with the likes of the Subdudes, 10,000 Maniacs, and Patty Larkin to name a few.
