Singer/songwriter James Stanley Howen (Jimmy to his
friends) has many years of performing both in bands
and as an acoustic artist behind him. While playing
the songs of some of the greatest singer/songwriters
in the American tradition like John Prine, Rodney
Crowell and Merle Haggard has influenced his original
music, Jimmy has found his own voice as singer and
songwriter. The sounds of Americana, Classic Country
and Southern Rock all make their marks on Jimmy's
On his first full length CD, Jimmy presents a serie
of songs written by him, lyricist Harry Hamm and
producer Donny Weber. From the timeless imagery of
"Where the Mighty Rivers Meet," to the humor of
"Beside Myself" and "Some Guys Have All the Luck" and
the reflections of "I Owe it All to You" and "Too Late
to Say I Love You," Jimmy and Harry's songs cover the
emotional gamut. The mix of traditional acoustic
instruments with modern electronics reflect Jimmy's
roots in the American tradition and his openness to
new experiences and influences.....Mark Douglas Marti 6/15/05.
