"The songs of Jim Wise are
absolutely excellent in every way!
Material, delivery, and recording
are all superb.
Very impressive!"

Scott G (The G-Man, Immedia Wire Service)

 

The windup, an outreached 6 foot 4 inch body, the smokin’ powerful release, and the roar of the crowd have created excitement for Jim Wise in two careers. A native of Joplin, Missouri, Jim was always focused on sports, but at the age of 14 he bought his first guitar and “picked and grinned” with his high school friends and played in bands, but he didn't have much time to devote to his musical activities when his sports career began to soar.  Jim attended the University of Iowa on a sports scholarship, graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and was drafted by professional baseball.

Jim became a successful St. Louis Cardinals pitcher, and after several seasons an injury sidelined his career.  After baseball, he moved to Elmhurst, Illinois, to become a park recreational supervisor, and at night he picked up his guitar and honed his singing talents as a solo act at coffee houses and clubs on Chicago’s Rush Street.  Jim eventually graduated to his own self-contained touring band, became hooked on music and entertained dreams of becoming a successful country music artist.  After working the “roadhouse” clubs, Jim progressed to large concert venues by performing as the opening act for major headliners including Alan Jackson and Waylon Jennings.  His stature, smooth baritone voice and a rockin’ country sound gets the attention of the audience on the first song and keeps it.  You will get this feeling when you first listen to his albums.

CATFISH.jpg

Everyone who loved "Jaws" will love "Catfish" even more! It's a little more down home, in fact, a way down home story.
It has suspense, humor, great likeable characters and action, action, action!
Our story is told from boyhood to manhood in a Tennessee town famous for the best place
to go cat fishing, Old Hickory Lake.
We will have fun through our storyteller growing up with his grandfather teaching him
all about the outdoors and learning to fish the lake.
But when Dubois chemical started dumping titanium and other toxic waste from its drain pipe into the lake,
it caused some sort of mutation to take place among the catfish in the lake.
It made them more aggressive and also smarter and even more ferocious.
But why now had they finally started to show themselves and really start
hunting anything that moved on the lake?
People of all ages who grew up in the country or who wish
they could experience the great outdoors will relate to this story.
The moral of the story will hit home with today's concerns for the environment, big business
and people growing up with the ultimate tragedy of a horrific Catfish attack.
