Jim achieved regional acclaim in the Dallas, Texas area during the late 1990?s with a group he fronted, aptly named the ?jim squires band?. The band was propelled by a large, college following which allowed it to gig heavily throughout the state, support national acts when they toured through the region, and frequently headline sold-out shows in the most popular clubs. It was with this group, which consisted primarily of talented jazz musicians ? many plucked from the renowned University of North Texas music program ? that Jim honed his live performance skills. After recording and releasing 3 EPs and receiving a number of awards, the band disbanded in 2000 when Jim re-located to San Francisco.

Jim turned his focus entirely to writing at that time and has amassed a large library of songs over the last few years. All songs were orchestrated, performed, and tracked in his home studio in San Francisco. Jim?s lyrics are primarily imagery based but deal with universal themes ? relationships, perception, experience, and the like. He is influenced by a variety of classic artists such as Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, and The Beatles, along with newer artists like Beck, Wilco, and Elliott Smith.
