This week’s featured CD:
Life by Jim Milam
Available at The Garage – only $10!
A native west Texan, Jim Milam was born in Odessa Texas, grew up in Monahans, and now calls Fort Stockton home. His early influences were bands like Three Dog Night, Grassroots, and Bread.
Being a fan of diverse genres of music provided Jim a broad range of musical ideas and appreciation. Like most musicians, Jim began learning and honing his skills by playing cover songs, but what always seemed most important was writing his own songs.
Jim played in many bands growing up with his brothers and many good friends, bands like Revolver, 3D, Avatar, Sweet Briar and The Hit. But for the last 20 years, he has played with Bart Reid and George Treadaway in the Thumpin Puppies.
Jim’s passion has always been music. His debut solo album “Life” is a dream he has worked on for many years, and showcases his poetic lyrics and unique voice. The album can’t be labeled with one genre, spanning pop, rock and even easy listening.
“Music is the one thing that people from all walks of life have in common. It is the soother of souls to the fever of emotions. Let it be what it is for you – and enjoy the ride. Happiness is the key to living life to the fullest.”
