Jim Mathis

I grew up in a country music family. My dad was a singer by avocation and an auctioneer by trade.

 

I fell in love with the steel guitar at an early age. I love Western Swing and Leon McAuliffe was my childhood hero.

 

I played tuba in the high school band and orchestra and worked my way through college playing bass in a blues band.

 

Today, I embrace all kinds of music, especially if it is authentic and from the heart. The title "Americana" seems encompassing enough, though "folk" might be an even more general category.

 

I play in several bands, but lately I've been doing more solo dates. That seems to be what us older guys do.

 

My regular business is a professional photographer, so visit my photography web pages as well.

 

Check the schedule to see where I will be.
