Album Notes
"The Continuing Adventures of the Butterfly Kid is a superb record from one of the Midwest's premiere singer/songwriters." - Mark Deming, All Music

Jim Roll has been a darling of the Alternative Country / Americana scene dating back to 1998 with 4 records to his credit. He has been featured in every magazine from No Depression to the New Yorker, has recorded with some of the finest musicians in the United States and co-written songs with novelists Denis Johnson (National Book Award winner and author of Jesus' Son and Tree of Smoke) and Rick Moody (award winning novelist and author of The Ice Storm). You can read more about Jim Roll's music and credits as a recording engineer at http://www.allmusic.com/artist/jim-roll-mn0000350532 or visit his recording studio website at http://backseatproductions.com. His music is never derivative but instead uses elements of the great American roots genres to produce a music utterly his own. His record Inhabiting the Ball was Amazon.com Rock Critic's #5 record of 2002 just behind WIlco, The Flaming Lips, Peter Gabriel and Elvis Costello, and just ahead of Beck, Steve Earle, Robert Plant and The Queens of the Stone Age.
