About

At times Jim from the Moon plays acoustic tunes about girls, the devil, and similar distractions. They flow in the vein of Loudon Wainwright III and Neil Young, sung with a voice soaked in years of Irish storytelling. Other times he expels far-out electric rock that is primal and space-ward, with hints of Hendrix's blues. Both sides are focused, catchy, and ready to be eaten by your ears.

Jim has packed up his guitars and moved his life to Hollywood in order to pursue lady fame. He is currently putting together a band and will be playing clubs all around LA, with a new album and tour planned for later this year.

Reviews:

"You can’t get much more original than Jim from the Moon...unorthodox...unconventional...no cheesy melodies or predictable phrasing...honesty...groovy...listeners will be impressed with the dark, distorted guitars...boasts that same rawness as Jim’s previous EP... an eccentric voice that ties in well with the album’s unusual-sounding instrumentals" "cool new tunes...unique with no real pattern, but a true direction...versatile pieces...refreshing" 
- Guitar Trump

"With his distinct vocals and willingness to explore and push conventional genres with his own unique take, this album (Space, Flesh & Woe) stretches the boundaries of psych/rock...A young man with an old soul and tales to tell" 
- Popa's Tunes

"...strange but genuinely talented…a fire raging within, finding release in psychedelia…sometimes torn to shreds
…bringing out dimensions quite different from what's glommed in the mainstream…pretty damned individualistic…bold experiments…what really nailed me was "Sometimes", a haunting track with brief simple lyrics that can't help but bore through your skull, set up residence in the limbic system, and refuse to vacate. Scary sometimes…"
- Mark Tucker, FAME

"No B.S lyrical style... not one ounce of wanker about him... extremely genuine... disarmingly simple stories with no corny catch lines or predictable riffage" 
- Sally Bailey, Undercover.fm 

"An aggressive, heartsick busker, possibly with punk rock roots…subtle effects…build to a wild squall of a climax…"
- Music Connection Magazine, November 2012

"Phenomenal"
- Pat Krane, The Independent Music Podcast

Jim is constantly writing and sharpening his craft with ventures into many different sounds and influences, on a life-long quest to fill a void he sees in modern music.
