Bio

Jim Button is a Bohemian with an edge. Living life as it comes but never taking anything for granted. Her voice is unique, soothing yet edgy and sumptuous but not over embellished … as delectable as red velvet cake.
The German COSMOPOLITAN compared her band Winterhood to downtempo-masters like Air and Morcheeba.
As a solo artist, the Hamburg based singer-songwriter has been called the “German Dido” – with a timbre as soothing and warm as Norah Jones’ and a stage presence that is without equal.
And as a songwriter, she “starts with songwriter-soul in the style of Norah Jones and Cat Power and culminates in the electronic worlds of Air and Kosheen.“ (-UNCLESALLY*S).
After 5 years of struggling with her band Winterhood, finally giving in to calling herself a "solo artist", and a few months of dealing with a major record company, Jim Button was sick of thinking about the word "commercial" all the time and tired of putting make-up on everything she created.
She was ready to go back to just making music and having “more of those magical moments during songwriting – when everything falls into place – that can keep you naturally high for days” ...
This was in early 2012 and ironically, since then, she has written some of her maybe most commercial songs ever.

Despite the fact that songs pour out of her like water, the songstress claims not to be a real musician after all. “I have no clue about music,” she says laconically when asked about her musical influences, “I’m just glad it’s inside me and I don’t really question where it comes from. Maybe folk, if you will. But what do I know.”
Whoever tries to teach her the principles of classic composition, will fail. She already has the complete song in her head anyways. And if she doesn’t have a co-author to help with the music, then she just goes ahead and finds the chords on the guitar by trial-and-error. “No need to compose systematically.”
Jim Button is not interested in perfection. She always cared more for the flaws in people than their strengths, she says. And that's how it is with her music, too. She is unafraid to show the entity of her being in her songs, all weaknesses included. Like water flowing from the mouth of a river into the vast oceans, Jim is free. Free to walk the line of modesty, and free to speak her mind.
