James Simpson

Paris, April 2008

Jim is a music critic and award-winning fiction writer. A native of the wilds of Florida’s Gulf Coast, he now resides on the scruffy outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia.

His musical taste spans all genres: Bluegrass, Americana, Classic Country, Alt-Country, Western Swing, Blues, Ambient, Drone, Brit Pop, Bebop Jazz, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Punk, Reggae, Klezmer, and British Isles Folk (to name but a few). He once sang Happy Birthday (with about 10,000 other people) to Joni Mitchell, and has seen such legends as Miles Davis, The Incredible Jimmy Smith, Rockpile, Blue Rodeo, Lucinda Williams, King Sunny Ade, Elvis Costello and Bob Dylan live in concert.

Jim is a staff writer for Country Music Pride and Atlanta Music Guide. He occasionally contributes essays to the international writers collective, TheNervousBreakdown, and has been at work on his first novel for longer than he originally planned. It should be in bookstores some time before his death. *Scroll down to follow links to Jim’s writing.*
