Feeling a bit camera shy


Minnesota Music Award Nominee Jim Carey started playing piano at age 9 at the suggestion of his grandparents. After finding his voice and starting a band with his brother Joe, the St. Paul native began writing songs and learned to play guitar, bass, and drums – all before the age of 15. After a year of playing in his first band, Jim and Joe moved to Rochester with their family and started a new band there, while continuing to write songs and hone a developing craft. Following 2 years of music study at the collegiate level, Jim put together a professional band and started playing in clubs. Since then, he has recorded with Neal Schon, and Ross Valory (both of Journey fame), along with Emmy Award Winner: Jon Close, Doobie Brothers’ producer: Marty Cohn, and REM producer: Don Dixon. He also fronted the St. Paul successful band Loft, and followed that with the sibling group The Careys, performing again with his brother Joe and adding their sister Jessica. At present, he sings regularly for radio IDs and commercials, plays over 200 dates a year throughout America, Europe and Mexico, and has shared the stage with Jonny Lang, Brad Paisley, and Martin Zellar. His first full-length solo CD, Juliet Avenue, was released in August 2002. Jim was also honored to be nominated for a Minnesota Music Award in 2006 (Best Piano/Keyboard Player). Currently, Jim is very happy to be performing all around the Midwest as the back-up singer/keyboard player for G.B. Leighton, while also doing some solo piano/vocal shows in the Midwest and in London.
