The Band

There aren’t nearly enough photos of my wonderful band up here, so I thought I’d add this lovely shot below. From left to right, that’s Rolla Olak, Richard Clements, Rob Butterfield, and Jenn Bojm, geniuses all.

First Reviews

The first round of reviews are in, with both SoundsXP and Nanobot Rock weighing in with very flattering reviews. Here are a few excerpts:

“With rolling purpose and southwestern bass reminiscent of The Outlaws, Clements sparks a fire of folk and songwriting that you’ll want to let burn while you dance around its glory with praise and raw enthusiasm” - Greg (Nanobot - read the full review here).

“To be frank, there is a hell of a lot to this record and it’s an absolute clinic on witty lyrics and raw emotion... I rank Jim Clements among some of the finest practitioners of the songwriting craft” - Kevin (Nanobot - read the full review here).

“Musically these are probably Clements’ strongest efforts yet, often conjuring a real early--hours atmosphere... So whilst the temptation to shrug off another downbeat country album might be all-too-understandably strong, it’d be a mistake in this case. Jim Clements is still a cut above” - Matt (Sounds XP - read the full review here).
