The Message is Within The Music

Influenced by life, love and the pursuit of the perfect song is what best describes songwriter James Wood's passion.

Jim has been a musician for most of his life but seriously began writing and performing as a student in high school. There, he honed his chops in creative writing, music theory, choir and local bands. All the while keeping to one thing: writing songs that cross barriers and mean something.

Jim's been able to share his music with audiences from small clubs and fairs to major concert venues. The message in his music transcends all genres.

His music has received critical acclaim both as an artist and part of a band with sixteen nominations the past two years at the Lehigh Valley Music Awards. Among them, the first all original CD, "The Long Road" won the award for Best Overall CD In All Genres for 2007. Jim wrote six songs on the CD.

Jim also had the opportunity to perform as part of the opening act for artists as diverse as three time Grammy nominee Jamie O'Neal, American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken and Mercury Nashville recording artist Julie Roberts.

Jim believes totally in the meaning of the songs and not himself. That's why you'll find that most of his songs have been sung by others. But he sums it up best by saying, "The message is within the music and is so much more than me."
