Jim Bizer has been making music and writing songs for as long as he can remember. He started his professional career at age 14; he's been a 'cover' musician, a session player and a composer for radio and television as well as a performing songwriter. He's played literally thousands of gigs, mostly around the midwest and his native Detroit (though recently he's been expanding his horizons.) Jim has a way with words, a muse for melody and a grip on being a great guitarist (not to mention an annoying affection for alliteration.) He's a dang good songwriter. 2004 brings his second CD 'Connected', on which Jim sings about faith, rivers, baseball, subatomic particles and combustible waterfowl. Somehow, this stuff works: the title song won the Grand Prize in the Great American Song Contest, he is a three-time Kerrville New Folk finalist and was a 'first five' recorded round pick at the 2004 Mountain Stage NewSong festival. Don't miss Closer To The Surface, Jim's release from 2001, also available here.
