Jim Stringer and the AM Band / Bio

Jim Stringer began his long music career in Kansas City leading his own band at the tender age of 12 in 1960. After many years of performing, touring and recording, in 1994, Stringer pulled up stakes and has been living, working and, as always, honing his craft as guitarist, producer, and singer-songwriter, in the competitive but nurturing environment of Austin, Texas.

During that time, his guitar has been heard with more than 30 Austin artists, live or on record, including Ted Roddy, Wayne Hancock, Roger Wallace, Marti Brom, Susanna Van Tassel, Karen Poston and many others. His own AM Band has released four CDs and has been included on nearly two dozen 20 compilations.

The band has toured widely, a featured act at Twangfest 8, and at festivals in Europe. A busy producer for Austin artists, Jim produced the now legendary "Travis County Pickin'" for HighTone. TCP has become a standard in the libraries of guitar enthusiasts.

In 2006, Jim was inducted into the Kansas/Kansas City Music Hall of Fame alongside such greats as Big Joe Turner and Al Downing.
