Jim Seem has performed thousands of concerts at senior living facilities throughout the country. What began as a way to make extra money became a driving force in his life.“I’ve discovered profound meaning in bringing live music to the elderly. There’s nothing like making someone happy."
Recently,Jim took four days off to record a batch of brand-new material at Pine Hollow Studios in Eau Claire, WI. Morning Side of Midnight is slated for release in May of this year. . “Shelly”, the first single, is an upbeat country/indie-folk hybrid about the redemptive power of love. The song was warmly embraced by longtime fans and critics alike ("Shelly is a hit!"-camphouserecords.com). The entire project was produced by by Evan Middlesworth, right before he was whisked away by The National for their international Sleep Well Beast tour. Jim will be bringing performing at listening rooms and other intimate venues throughout 2020. Stay tuned for dates!.
