Show #11 Jim Armstrong

Courageous doesn’t begin to tell this story

Jim Armstrong didn’t just overcome adversity, it is his constant companion. Epilepsy (since age eight), brain surgery and a horrific run-in with a fork lift would stop most of us cold. All they do for Jim is spur his enormous talent and immense heart to churn out eerily touching tunes.

Email Jim & Andrea. They’d love to hear from ya!

A big THANK YOU to Jersey Joe at Pick To Click for recommending we take Jim’s music for a spin. We’re now fans for life!
