Jim transports his concert audiences on a cinematic "melodic journey" enhanced by his performance videos: evocative multimedia montages coordinated with the music, projected behind him as he plays. In the course of an evening Jim weaves his musical themes around breathtaking visions of Irelandís Cliffs of Mohr, the majesty of the California redwoods, and enchanting moonlit visions of late-night Paris. Click below to see streaming video of Jim performing "California" (from A Place In My Heart) in concert.
A Place In My Heart (previously titled Sanctuary) is a breathtaking CD of original compositions that transports you on an unforgettable journey of melodic tributes to places and people in Jim’s life that have profoundly moved him. This CD will be a lasting place of refuge that you will want to revisit again and again.
