Album Notes
Jim Dorie is currently living in his home province of Nova Scotia after working in Alberta for a number of years. An avid reader and audiophile, Jim has been collecting song ideas and bits of melody for quite a while. Jim plays acoustic roots/folk music that paints pictures and tells stories about life experiences, friendship, interesting characters, work and relationships.

A long standing interest in the singer-songwriter musical category, Jim has listened to John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Richard Shindell, Jackson Browne, Fred Eaglesmith, Dave Gunning, Ron Hynes and many more. These artists have no doubt influenced Jim's writing and performance style. Jim's first recording, titled "Something Happened" was released in the spring of 2010. Recorded at "Wee House of Music Co." in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, the record features the talents of Dave Gunning, J.P. Cormier, Fleur Mainville and Jonathan MacDougall.

Although Something Happened is a debut recording, many friends in the business have stated that the CD is as good as many they have heard from artists who are releasing their fourth or fifth album.

His second CD, Ghosts of Pictou County was recorded in January of 2012, at Ranson House Studio in Cape Breton with J.P. Cormier as producer and engineer. J.P. also provided a variety of instrumentation. Jim is very happy with it and thinks anyone purchasing it will be too. It is available, on his website, through PayPal, CD Baby, ITunes and other online distrbutors. Jim has been co-writing with Dave Gunning on a somewhat regular basis and they have written more than a half-dozen songs together. He has shared the stage with Dave, as well as Gordie Sampson, J.P. Cormier, Susan Crowe, Dave Carroll, Fleur Mainville, Mike Plume, Christina Martin, David Myles, Ian Foster, Laura Smith, David Francey, and James Keelaghan.

He is a busy musician touring and writing regularly and hopes you enjoy his stories in song.
