Description
Jim Bowers is a contemporary singer/songwriter and balladeer whose songs are a power lyrical journey through a host of human emotions and conditions that engage, challenge, and sometimes even confronts the audience. Stylistically, Jim's songs are reminiscent of vintage Kris Kristofferson, Gordon Lightfoot, Harry Chapin, John Prine, and Mike Nesmith. Through his songs, Jim pays homage to the simple and unavoidable fact that a good song is about three chords and the truth (regardless of how many chords actually are in the song).

Roster
Jim Bowers--Singer/Songwriter: Guitar & Vocals

Influences
Jim's influences are pricipally the singer/songwriters from the 1969s and 1970s to whom he grew up listening. Primary influences include Kris Kristofferson, Gordon Lightfoot, Johnny Cash, John Prine, Harry Chapin, Hank Williams, Roger Miller, Tom T. Hall, and Mike Nesmith

History
Jim has performed as a solo artist and in small groups for over 25 years helping to put himself through college and in between graduate school, a career as a college professor, a published author of six books, a political analyst for western New York media outlets, and serving a term as a city-wide elected officials in his adopted hometown of Rochester, NY.

For years, Jim covered and interpreted the songs of his main influences and other popular artists of the day. In his teens and early 20s Jim dabbled in songwriting writing what he now describes as "poor, poor, pitiful me" songs. He seriously returned to songwriting in the late 1990s, bringing a unique skill set from his varied experience to the craft. Since his return to sonwriting, Jim has recorded two CDs of original songs ("Tequila Lips," and "No Apology ") both of which are available at www.cdbaby.com and local record stores such as the Bop Shop and House of Guitars.
