Album Notes
After more than 15 years of supporting other artists as a producer, recording/live sound engineer and side musician, Vermont resident Jim Gilmour began writing songs in earnest in 1998. The best of them are showcased in his debut solo CD, "Quarterline," providing an intimate portrait of Jim's style and sound.

The new CD is produced and engineered by Ben Wisch, known for his work with Marc Cohn, Cheryl Wheeler and Patty Larkin, among others. Musical support is provided by guitarist Duke Levine (Jonatha Brooke, Mary Chapin Carpenter, John Gorka) and Marc Schulman (Lucy Kaplansky, October Project, Patty Larkin) and drummer Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live Band, Joan Osborne, Edie Brickell).
Jim found his compositional style while searching for new sounds and grooves on his acoustic guitar using multiple capos and alternate tunings. His lyrics, sometimes veiled, sometimes chillingly frank, are composed from the everyday subjects of life- all while celebrating the mystery of life.

Jim performs more than 100 dates a year, in a variety of configurations. He plays solo, or with his touring combo, and as a sideman for recording artists Laura Molinelli and Chris Kleeman, and Ryan Dubois. Jim's style is casual and confident, and his comfortable delivery of anecdotes and audience interaction results in a captivating show.

In addition to his solo career Jim continues to produce and engineer CD's for independent artists. He is also a bassist and backing vocalist for many performing acts on the road and in the studio. He has worked with artists such as James Mee, Kort & Beth McCumber, Rick Redington, jam band Foxtrot Zulu, Celtic band, Wind That Shakes the Barley and many other local and regional acts.

Masterpiece of pure heart
I met Jim around 2004 at an open mic at Caffe Lena's in Saratoga Springs, NY. At the time I was working on my first solo album and my level of skill and maturity was quite green. After playing a few songs Jim came up to me and gave me a vote of confidence saying that he liked my raw style. Maybe he saw something in me or maybe Jim is the kind of guy that tries to see the good in things. He played a few songs at the open mic and he was indeed exceptional - holding the audience in an astounded trance. His songs don't tug on heart strings they go inside the very chamber and course through your blood. The songs on Quarterline are warm and sometimes desperate -seeking answers - trying to find peace in fated circumstances. While the open mic was winding down - Jim handed me a copy of his album/cd 'Quarterline' it was not officially released yet as the copy he humbly handed me was burned on a generic cd -with hand-written marker - Quarterline. From the first play of Quarterline almost a decade ago I still remember being blown away and playing every song over and over again - if you could wear out a CD I would be the first! I have to this day never heard an album with more precision/clarity and yet so much heart and soul. A balance that all artists seek and never find within themselves. 9 years later I am working on releasing a full studio album and Jim Gilmour creeped back into my mind - not sure what the trigger was -as with many things you lose touch - life happens and then your back. I thought I would do a google search and see what Jim was up to. Well it appears Jim is up to a lot! and I am indeed happy to see that! I listened to the tracks of Quarterline online and sometimes you wonder if what you thought was amazing almost a decade ago still holds true. Indeed my memories of Quarterline served me right! This album is truly a masterpiece - a gift to those who appreciate music - a template of how an album should sound. The stories in these songs take you on a trip through all the human emotions - this is what music is supposed to do. Buy this CD!
