He never decided to become a tribute artist, he was just a kid who liked to sing Elvis songs! During the 80’s, Jim was the author of Goldmine Magazine's column “For Elvis Fans Only” - that’s when he began playing guitar and recording his voice. He sold over thirty (!) copies of his first album, which gave him enough money to start his own little “mini” Can'oVan Studio. By the mid 90’s, Jim had reorganized his main passion and begun producing Presley tribute albums on a regular basis! Heck, if you want to make a record... just make one! Most of the live gigs he does are just for fun, his way of reminding people of how great Elvis was and well, just reminding people of Elvis ! Though Jim maintains his entrepreneurial writing endeavors, it's his rocking music that keeps the neighborhood shaking with a whole lot ‘o smiles!
