Releases on Rig Records

Reinventing the Wheel   Reinventing the Wheel is an intimate, back-to-basics record in the rural blues/folk tradition, with all the husk and bark left on. No fake finesse here, just stumbling grace and ragged beauty. The album was released on Rig Records on 20th July 2009.

Reinventing the Wheel is a true solo effort. Jim has written all the songs and performs all of the vocals and backing vocals as well as playing all of the instruments, with the exception of the piano on the last track which is played by his Sanctuary Rig bandmate Mark Rae.

The album is available for purchase here.
