Jim "Freight Train" Matthews / Bio

In 1984 I had the pleasure of playing with the great Mike Wheeler with Wildwood in Pensacola FL just after Mike put out his "Illusions" album. I married the following year and for 26 years didn't play any music.

I started playing the Alto Sax in 2008. Relocated to Charleston SC, Joined the Low Country Blues Club" and bought a nee Tama kit for my 50th birthday.

In 2009 I was invited to visit Cross SC and jam with the great Blues family the Walls. I was the drummer with Momma and The Redemption. The Walls became part of my family. We played some realy cool events over the next few years until a job change took me to Ft Worth Texas where I stayed for most of 2012 & 2013 absorbing the Texas Blues.

I relocated back to Pensacola Florida mid 2013 and have enjoyed meeting some great musicians in the area. I started studying recording and mastering while working on my first Sax CD called "Ultra Lounge".

Thanks to Blane Butler, Greg Lufkus, Tommy Thunderfoot, The Captain, Mike Bounds and the great Wall family ( Momma, Poppa, and JoJo ) for helping me re-discover the joy of playing music!
