MAJOR ENTERTAINMENT CREDITS:

JIM LOFTUS HAS OPENED FOR REGIS PHILBIN(State Theatre in Easton,PA--Jan.1992);written an original rock opera musical "GHOSTS ON BROADWAY" which played NYC's John Houseman Theatre in May 1995(attended by Grammy and Oscar-award winning composer STEPHEN SCHWARTZ--do yourself a favor and visit www.stephenschwartz.com); he played tribute dinner functions at the Plaza Hotel,NYC for the late ROSETTA LeNOIRE and DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS,JR.(April 1996),also the late MILTON BERLE(Oct.1996--Waldorf-Astoria Hotel)and JULIE ANDREWS(Feb.1997--21 Club); Jim and his trio THREE TOGETHER opened for TODD RUNDGREN at Crocodile Rock,Allentown, PA(Oct.2001). As an actor, Jim has starred in several Lehigh Valley productions playing Jesus in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, Magaldi in EVITA and many more. He's done TV and film extra work in Philadelphia and NYC,including the CBS show "HACK"(5 episodes!--read about my experiences on "HACK" by logging on to www.davidmorse.org).

BACKGROUND ON JIM'S CD "THE FAME GAME"

The theme intricately woven through this extremely melodic, thought-provoking CD is the struggle of it's characters to achieve fame and fortune in LA or the Big Apple. The title track, along with "Sweet Little Lady" and "Man Who's Really Been Around the Town" drive that theme home quite well. Other songs that contribute to the tone are "This Cycle", a disparaging lament of a day in the life; the sensual saga of the steamy side is captured in two-back-to-back funk rock numbers "All Inside Of You" and "Burn the Candle At Both Ends". Striking departures welcome the listener with the beautiful ballad writing Jim is capable of. "Midsummer Night's Dream Come True" see its central figure a woman trapped in Shakespeare's era(1592-inspired by the film "Shakespeare In Love"),unable to enact the roles in her time-and so she comes in a dream to play the various great roles of Juliet, Lady Macbeth, etc(and so her struggle for fame and recognition is relegated to someone's dreams-a stroke of genius on this writers part).
Following this Beatlesque gem is another dreamscape-"Land of Make Believe"-a lovely samba with a Genesis/Peter Gabriel atmosphere with clever tongue-twisting lyrics. "Mary Kate" is a Boston dreamballad about a pending high-school reunion; "Heaven In Your Heart" and "Should Anything Ever Happen" could be NSync's next two hits-absolutely beautiful modern pop songs with multiple part harmonies; and "Where Do You Go" is a brilliant ballad ala Elton John dealing with a woman trapped in a loveless marriage. The two remaining songs are possibly everyone's favorite songs on the CD and have been featured in the media. "Senorita Tell Me Why" was inspired by viewing a Ricky Martin special, and was written immediately after within one hour! This and many other tunes have received airplay in PA-"Senorita" additionally has been performed with Jim's trio "Three Together" in an opening act performance with Todd Rundgren, and on the Valley Arts TV show hosted by Paul Willistein on RCN Cable CH.4 in the Lehigh Valley. "I'll Sing It'-the most requested and possibly best all-around song on the CD-went as high as #2 on the www.mp3songs.org.uk TOP 100 charts--"HEAVEN IN YOUR HEART" also made those charts going to #8.

The true meaning of original music...
The true meaning of original music. All songs written and arranged by this versatile singer/songwriter Jim Loftus. This CD has a unique style all its own, at times mixing soul, jazz, with a hint of pop in one recording, tastefully done. The smooth harmonies are very refreshing. Engineered by Dana Fehr and Pete Davis at Signal Sound Studios(Quakertown,PA--www.signalsound.com)

Jerry Duckett--The Express Times

Jim Loftus writes hit songs with the best of them!
Lehigh Valley, PA musician Jim Loftus has managed to establish himself as a working musician of diversity and as a gifted crafter of songs. He writes his own music and lyrics and recently produced his own CD, which is filled with pop rock, R&B, melodic ballads, and tunes with a Latin flavor(sample "Senorita Tell Me Why" on his CDBaby site). "The Fame Game", produced by the popular vocalist and keyboardist on his own label, Loftusongs, is being played on several local commercial and collegiate radio stations. Loftus writes in the same league with established artists Billy Joel and Elton John, emphasizing melody and lyrical content. It's very radio-friendly, and I invite music fans to check him out!--Jerry Duckett

Thoughtful, Creative, Addictive
Enchanting melodies, thoughtful prose, a man with a message. Upbeat, and stylish. Not the same old head pounding noise littered with expletives. Habit-forming.
