Chattanooga, Tennessee's long lost musical native son, Jim Ramsey, has embarked on an effort to jump-start his performance career by re-releasing his visionary progressive folk rock album, On the Dying Breath of Wisdom (originally released in 2012), and launching a new website, JimRamseyMusic.com.

Jim, a Southern bard who struggled to market his songs in the 80's and 90's—before putting his efforts on hold to become a mental health counselor—is once again taking to the stage with his signature romantic, Celtic-tinged power ballads which chronicle his coming of age in Southern Appalachia.

Jim will be performing at the next Whole Foods Open Mic Night on December 3rd, and hopes to be included in the next "The Floor is Yours" lineup at the Barking Legs Theater on December 4th. Jim's optimism is buoyed by the recent founding of SoundCorps, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building Chattanooga's music economy, as well asby The Pulse's November 5th issue heralding the city's "music revolution."

A classically-trained brass and woodwind player, Jim was influenced by British folk and progressive rock artists (Al Stewart, Strawbs, Sandy Denny, Yes, Renaissance, Fairport Convention, Alan Parsons Project), and began writing songs in his teens. In the 1980's he taught himself to play guitar and began performing in small venues. Jim recorded his album between the years 1997-2000, but spent the better part of 2007-2011 just trying to survive the Recession, and in 2013 founded an interfaith ministry, Crossvine Church.

While Jim has been absent from the live performance scene for some time, he's back and better than ever with 15 years' worth of new material to share. He is currently seeking regional acoustic solo gigs and preparing to record his second album.

Please get in touch with Jim at info@jimramseymusic.com for booking information.
