Singer and songwriter Jim Anthony was born and brought up in the working class town of Albert Lea, in southern Minnesota. Jim has remained true to his hometown roots and through his music he lends his voice to the often forgotten middle class heroes that make this world go around. This down to earth genuineness comes through in Jim's singing, playing, and songwriting. Jim likes his music delivered from the heart, uncanned and uncloned. The desire to remain true to his beliefs, values and music is a focal point for Jim. He has no desire to sound like everybody else or be processed and packed into a product like so many momentary bands and fleeting artists have been in the past. He is far more interested in honesty and longevity. What clearly defines Jim Anthony - aside from his musicianship, songwriting skills, and polished sound - is his soulful message; its one of hope, encouragement, and truth. The honest and heartfelt lyrics speak of life experiences that we can all identify with. When you close your eyes and listen to their words you can almost smell the dust being brushed off a farmers hand as he faces yet another day without rain, or see the factory worker wipe the sweat from her forehead as she thinks of her childrens futures. You might even recognize yourself in the fed up commuter stuck in traffic who exits the system and returns to a simpler life. These aren't shallow Hollywood stories of petty problems and plastic people, but stories of the human spirit found in everyday folks making their hard-earned way in the world, at times supporting their families with nothing more than a little bit of faith.
