James Fagan

Founding member and guitarist for Savage Bliss, ( ) Jim had risen through the ranks as a guitarist and musician from his first and still foremost influences of Judas Priest, composer John Williams, Accept, Queen, The Beatles, and of course Glenn Tipton and KK Downing, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Matthias Jabs, and Wolf Hoffmann.

All of these influences, along with early classical teachings from his father, enabled Jim to cut out a unique voice of his own on guitar, with his style unmistakable, but proudly reminiscent of those influences.

His dedication to the instrument paid off early on in his career, as he won a state-wide guitar contest that gave him an early confidence, and notoriety to be able to pull together the best musicians to ultimately form what became Savage Bliss.

Along with Savage Bliss, Jim has also enjoyed working with other musicians and playing with local bands over the years, and having recently played with Cell 15 ( with Robert Scott of Hybrid Ice fame ), and a guest appearance on a new upcoming project with some of the members of the awesome Finnish metal band, Burning Point.

As he also works on some other smaller projects, the horizon is still always kept open, and Savage Bliss is always ready to pave new ground and new directions.
