Bio

jim patterson began his musical life when, as a child, he realized he could figure out how to play stuff on the piano. jim formed his first rock band at the age of, 18? or something? they were called ferdinand. Jim left the band soon after when he discovered jazz, and what he perceived to be more emphasis on the music rather than hype. after several years of studying piano at the VCA. Jim realized there was hype everywhere, and so decided just to stop thinking and try to make some music that he liked, and hopefully others would too. Jim is currently attempting to record an album. With all songs written and no money, he is endlessly irritated. It's a constant battle isn't it.?

What's that sample going on in the background? Kind of like a soft 80's video game... I like it! Sweet song, beautifully multi-tracked vocals, pretty low key - and I almost wish Jim would break out with a chorus that changes the direction of the song but as it stands it's quite lovely.
