ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Jim Meese began playing piano at age 3. His first teacher was his father, a singer and accordionist. The youngest of five children, he grew up surrounded by all types of music. Intrigued by the Progressive Rock of the 70s, Jim began writing music as early as 6th grade. He performed in bands throughout high school and college/music school which he attended on scholarship.

In 1991, upon completing his first CD as an Engineer/Producer, "Newz From Nowhere" by Rubaiyat (he also played keyboards and contributed to the singing), Jim moved to Florida to attend the prestigious recording school, Full Sail. After finishing with extremely high marks, he moved back to Ohio to open his own recording studio, record label and publishing company.

From 2002- 2005 he focused on the recording and release of his first solo album- "Listen".

He is currently playing live with the band Aunt Esther and is writing his second album.

Nine tracks with really cool vibes, nine very diverse attitudes.
Jim Meese is an extremely talented producer, who has worked with a number of decent artists and bands--using his skills to mold their songs into something beautiful. Meese didn't mind the role of "second fiddle" on all of those previous works, but finally has released a collection of HIS own music.
Jim Meese (the producer), now adds writer/singer/musician to his credits. Get ready for the welcome sounds of "Listen"--Meese's first solo effort.

Nine tracks with really cool vibes, nine very diverse attitudes--"Listen" has a little something for everyone.
You want it heavy? Check out the punchy groove on "Mother Why?".
Acoustic piano reigns supreme on the Elton John-sounding ballad "Grey In Green". Sort of like Meese's own "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" (which ain't bad company!)
"Poem" is a track that Sade would love to wrap her vocal chords around.
"Stone Unturned" takes you back to the Allman Brothers Band of the early 80's.

Listener-friendly vocals pack the cd from beginning to end.
Progressive Rock meets Jazz. Jam tunes meet ballads. Poppy hooks meet Steely Dan.
Sassy saxophone, hypnotic organ riffs, subtle guitar licks, gentle piano playing...Young Jimmy learned alot from sitting behind the console all those years.

Give "Listen" a listen.
It's fine music to ease your mind and free your spirit.
In this troubled day and age, that's ALWAYS a good thing.

-Cornel Bogdan, WNCD 93.3FM WNCD - Clear Channel Radio Youngstown, "Tangled Up In Blues"

One of the finest independent releases in recent years!
After listening to Jim Meese's debut recording Listen I am convinced that it has to be one of the finest independent releases in recent years. From the well-crafted songs,meticulous production... etc.it is a recording that stands head and shoulders above the rest. In addition, Jim has brought together some of the finest musicians in the business. There performances on this recording are nothing short of amazing! Do yourself a favor get yourself a copy of Listen you'll be glad that you did!
