Album Notes
Jim Wyly was born and raised in Tyler, Texas and has spent the last 40 years living and playing in the Austin area, so it would be easy to label him a “Texas Songwriter”. While that may be the easy route and very much true, it would also be lazy and a mistake to box him in with that label. Wyly has spent those 40 years honing a craft that expands far beyond the box of his home state.
That’s not to say that Texas is not flowing through the blood of what he writes. For years as a member of several bands including Movin Target and The Lunar Rollers, Jim has been widely regarded by his peers as a master of the songwriting craft. At the young age of 72, Wyly is stepping away from the sound and life of being in a band and releasing his solo debut, The Artisan.
"Moving from acoustic strums to a solid backbeat, Jim Wyly is the guide, showing his skills as a storyteller with The Artisan, his upcoming release. The voice of Jim Wyly clings to the words like a patina, his delivery polishing to a shine tales of love and loss, life and legend." - Danny McCloskey, The Alternate Root
