James "Ukulele Jim" clark found the spark to ignite his musical career as a late bloomer. When his twins were born in 2005, Jim chose to take up the ukulele so his children would grow up in a house that was always full of music. He is primarily self-taught, drawing from a large pool of influences such as George Harrison, James Hill, Boulder Acoustic Society, Barenaked Ladies, and The Magnetic Fields, just to name a few.
From his home studio in Santa Barbara, Ukulele Jim uses the convenience of the Internet to work with talented musicians from all over the world, creating an international 'virtual band' free from geographical boundaries. This collaborative freedom allows Jim to switch styles between acoustic solo pieces to songs with a full band sound.
With music that combines the soulfulness of James Taylor with the pop sensibilities of Jack Johnson, Ukulele Jim will treat you to an ear pleasing, heart stealing, joyful feeling good time!
Only requirement is a microphone and a plugin for acoustic/electric ukulele. Disco ball and strobe lights optional.
