Songwriter Showcase at Longstreet’s

longstreetMark your calendar for Thursday, June 13th at 8pm. I will be one of three featured artists for Longstreet’s Songwriter Showcase. Music lovers, come out to support local original music and hear songs from my recent solo effort, Just You & Me.

My good friend Doug McFarland will also be a featured artist that evening, and who knows, maybe we’ll play one or two songs together. So come on out and see us!

Longstreet’s Top Shelf Bar is at 133 N. Front Street, Wilmington, NC, right next to Orton’s in downtown Wilmington. School’s out for summer, so “it’s a school night” is not an excused absence. See you there.

Just You & Me CD Release Date Announced

cd releaseSave the date! Come join me at 7pm Saturday, February 9th at Ted’s Fun on the River for the release of my latest recording, Just You & Me.

The title Just You & Me is referring to the fact that with this recording, my goal was to have it sound as if the listener was sitting in my living room with me and my piano. Together with Jeff Reid at Ear to the Ground Recording studio, we created something as close to a live solo performance as possible, something that I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time.

The tracks include some older material from previous Waterline CD’s, as well as some new songs that hadn’t yet made it onto any recordings. There are 10 songs in total:
1. Here on an Island
2. Can’t Keep Quiet Today
3. Did You Kiss Me Goodbye
4. Long Goners
5. Simple Pleasures
6. Hail Mary
7. In a Little While
8. For Better, For Worse
9. I’m a Mess
10. Angel Man

Starting at 7pm on February 9th, I will play through each of the 10 songs from the record, and then bring up friends Chris Pappalardo, Doug McFarland and Catesby Jones to help me finish out the evening.

Ted’s is a gem of a venue that I was recently introduced to when I played with Catesby Jones for his CD release there. It’s an old house that has been converted into a cozy listening room for songwriters, something that is rare in Wilmington.

Hope to see you there.

Jim
