Jim Photoglo

“What Do I Tell My Son” – “Pure singer-songwriter album, written with the great Gary Burr, almost poetry to music..really struck me” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Singer/Songwriter Folk/ Acoustic /Americana
Record label: ​Grifftone Records    Current Location: Nashville, TN
Influences: The behind-the-scenes writers of the Brill Building (Mann and Weil, King and Goffin) and Motown, to writer-artists like the Beatles, the Young Rascals and the Rolling Stones. Photoglo’s eclectic style fostered recordings by a variety of artists, including James Ingram and the Everly Brothers.

Jim Photoglo has musically spanned four decades as both a songwriter and artist, bringing his unique creative voice to the R&B, Pop and Country arenas.
He grew up in Los Angeles and began playing in bands as a teenager but never considered music as a “career” until he was in his early 20s. He took every kind of gig from playing in a funeral band to putting together a group to back John Belushi’s “Joe Cocker” imitation at a party for Paul McCartney.
His solo career took off when he was signed to the Twentieth Century Fox label in 1979, culminating in a pair of Pop hits: “We Were Meant To Be Lovers” in 1980 and “Fool in Love With You” in 1981. Photoglo hit the TV talk show circuit, toured the Orient twice, and opened for the Beach Boys on a national tour. By the time his third album was released, the financially- troubled Fox label was unable to properly launch the project, and once again Photoglo took to the road.
He spent the next 2 years singing back-up for Andy Gibb, and concentrating on song writing.
While enjoying this sabbatical from recording, his songs began to catch fire with the creative “powers-that-be” in post-”Urban Cowboy” Nashville. Before he knew it, he had cuts with Kenny Rogers, Marty Robbins, Gary Morris and Brenda Lee. Further encouraged by good friend Wendy Waldman, a fellow L.A. popster who’d recently relocated and was enjoying a few country hits of her own, Photoglo moved to Music City in 1984 to pursue a full-time career as a songwriter.
He took the occasional tour as a bassist for the likes of Carole King, Vince Gill and Dan Fogelberg, but his main focus was songwriting, successfully quadrupling his creative output over the next few years.
After recording two solo albums in 1993, his career took a bizarre turn. He and Russell Smith of The Amazing Rhythm Aces, Bernie Leadon of the Eagles and hit-songwriter Vince Melamed formed the band Run C&W. Taking classic soul songs of the 60s and 70s, they rearranged and performed them as bluegrass songs with comedic undertones.
Photoglo continued to perform regularly at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Café and tour solo, combining songwriter workshops with concerts at colleges, coffee houses and clubs around the country. He released 3 more CDs on Grifftone Records – FLY STRAIGHT HOME in 2000, SPARKS IN THE RADIO (2005) which landed at #30 on the Folk DJ Best Albums of 2005 list, and IS IT ME? which hit #1 in June of 2009.  ( Full Bio)

HALLS OF MY HEART (Grifftone) released on July 1, 2014 is the 10 track album Jim Photoglo has been working toward his whole career. His first album in five years features the label’s namesake Griffin Photoglo on drums Historically a celebrated co-writer, Jim takes the reins penning the majority of the songs alone, delving deep into personal subjects delivered with universal truths. You’ll find Jim playing most of the instruments and singing all of the background vocals, melding his experiences playing guitar, bass and singing for such well regarded artists as Carole King, the late Dan Fogelberg, Vince Gill, the late Nicolette Larson, Wendy Waldman, as well as his own bands.

Amy McCarley

“Head Out Of Town” – “A very unique voice” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Americana, Folk, Country, Rock
Current Location: Huntsville, Alabama
liver of life. singer of song. tapper of toe.

Good things come to those who wait – and this summer, alt-country fans will be rewarded for their patience. On June 10, 2014 singer-songwriter Amy McCarley released JET ENGINES, the 10 track highly anticipated follow-up to her 2011 self-titled debut.
Blurb: Produced by Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives) and George Bradfute, Jet Engines is a sterling collection of original music anchored by McCarthy’s earthy alto as she leads listeners on a musical road trip that travels from the twangy traditional country featured on the toe-tapper “Here I Am” to the smoldering Americana of the title track.
McCarley, who was named a Northern Alabama Artist to Watch by The Huntsville Times in 2012, has already taken her home state by storm. With Jet Engines, she firmly establishes herself as a rising star on the national roots music scene.

No Depression Jet Engines (Album Review)...The alt-country scene is crowded these days, which is great for fans but tough for artists looking to stand out. Fortunately for Amy McCarley, the first thing that strikes a new listener is her distinctive voice. There are shades of genre luminaries in her Alabama drawl -- a little bit of Lucinda Williams slur, a touch of Dwight Yoakam-esque mountain twang. But comparisons are really only useful for reference purposes; McCarley's sound is all her own, and her latest album Jet Engines showcases an artist firmly grounded in Americana, yet well-poised to make an individual statement.....
>> Watch her perform the lead track from her new record, “Jet Engines
