Biography

The Godfather of "ACOUSTIC COUNTRY SOUL"!

JIM FEMINO is one of the greatest living entertainers and singer-songwriters alive today, and is a true American treasure. After entertaining crowds both large and small all through the seventies and eighties throughout the entire eastern hemisphere, he "retired" to Nashville to become a professional songwriter. His abilities garnered him everything from Grammy nominations to having his songs recorded by some of the biggest names in Country music, including the highest honor any pro songwriter can achieve; he co-wrote the Billboard 2008 Most Played Country Song Of The Year, "JUST GOT STARTED LOVIN' YOU”, by Warner Bros. recording artist James Otto.
But now Jim has returned to the stage to resume doing what he does best, entertain, and he hasn't dropped a stitch! Whether in front of thirty people or thirty thousand, Jim's abilities to own a stage and the hearts of every audience member with his songs and stories from a lifetime in music, are becoming legendary. But don't listen to us! Listen to what "they're" saying, as in the case of Jamey Reilly, of Jamey's House Of Music in Philadelphia. This is what he had to say after a recent “Femino show” at his venue.
“Jim Femino is at the same time a breath of fresh air and a throwback to the days when entertainers had real talent. He is an absolute musical genius with a voice that just comes out of nowhere and lays you out flat. To top it off, he can tell stories with the ease of a Garrison Keillor, that pull you right in and have you falling out of your seat. If you get the chance to see this man perform, cancel whatever plans you had, and buy a front row ticket… you’ll thank me!”
Jim Femino is most definitely back, and just in time. In an age when it takes flash bombs, smoke, laser light shows, dancers and all sorts of manner of distractions for a crowd to be entertained, Jim stands up there armed with nothing more than his voice, a guitar and a comedic sense of humor and does masterfully what true artists are supposed to do; he entertains. Won't you join us in bringing him to the world?

Lyrics

I SAW YOUR FACE ON FACEBOOK

Written By: Jim Femino & Richard Bach

“I SAW YOUR FACE ON FACEBOOK”
(J. Femino & R. Bach)

YOU AND I BEEN TOGETHER
MORE THAN LONG ENOUGH
THAT I THOUGHT BETTER THAN TO EVER
QUESTION YOUR LOVE
BUT I JUMPED ONLINE TONIGHT
AND I COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EYES
THERE ON YOUR GIRL FRIEND’S PAGE
MUCH TO MY SURPRISE

CHORUS:
I SAW YOUR FACE
ON FACEBOOK
KISSIN’ ANOTHER FACE
AND IT WASN’T MINE
THE TWO OF YOU
LOOKED LIKE YOU WERE
HAVIN’ ONE HELLUVA TIME
EMAILED YOU ONCE
TWEETED YOU TWICE
BUT YOU AINT HITTIN’ ME BACK TONIGHT
I SAW YOUR FACE
ON FACEBOOK
KISSIN’ ANOTHER FACE
AND IT WASN’T MINE

I ‘BOUT DIED WHEN I SAW YOU
THOUGHT I MUST BE LOSIN’ MY MIND
I WAS SO BUSY TRUSTIN’ YOU
LOVE MADE ME BLIND
MY FRIENDS TRIED TO WARN ME
SOMEONE NEW WAS TAKIN’ MY PLACE
BUT I DIDN’T BELIEVE A WORD TIL

(REPEAT CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
I’D POKE YOU HONEY
BUT YOU’RE PROB’LY OUT WITH HIM TONIGHT
I’M CHANGIN’ OUR STATUS
BLOCKIN’ YOU BABY
YOU AINT NO FRIEND O’ MINE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

I LOST YOU

Written By: Jim Femino, James Otto & Monty Powell

“I LOST YOU”
(Monty Powell, James Otto & Jim Femino)

ALL MY FRIENDS SAY
TIME WILL HEAL OLD WOUNDS
BROKEN HEARTS WILL LOVE AGAIN
I’D LIKE TO BELIEVE
WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE
BUT THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT
I HAD SO MUCH MORE TO LOSE

CHORUS: YOU WERE BEAUTIFUL
YOU WERE MAGICAL
EVERY NIGHT WITH YOU
WAS A MIRACLE
IT WAS ANYTHING
BUT A TYPICAL
LOVE OOO
I DIDN’T LOSE SOMEONE
NO NOT JUST ANYONE
BABY I LOST YOU

DINNER BY CANDLELIGHT
WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
CAN’T EVEN HEAR OUR OLD FAVORITE SONG
EVERY WALK ON THE BEACH
IS A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE
YOU MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE
TO EVER LOVE THAT WAY AGAIN

(REPEAT CHORUS)

BRIDGE: DON’T TRY TO TELL ME
I’LL LOVE ANOTHER DAY
I LOST HOPE OF THAT
THE DAY YOU WALKED AWAY

(REPEAT CHORUS & TAG LAST TWO LINES)

(REPEAT CHORUS)
