“LIVE MUSIC: JIM PERKINS Local musician Prepares for Nashville move with New CD in Hand Singer/songwriter Jim Perkins took an unconventional road establishing himself as a musician. He did not pick up a guitar or write songs until he was in college. An Augusta native, he grew up in a rural area with no access to cable or music videos, so he taught himself to play without the advantage of watching the artists on television. Thus, it should come as no surprise that his second and third albums — Broken Record Reasons, a band project, and Jim Perkins Live, recorded at a solo acoustic performance — buck the industry trends and are being released simultaneously. Perkins stays busy. He gigs consistently in the Georgia/South Carolina area, is a go-to guy to open for acoustic touring artists and has a CD release show on March 19. His wife and he are also preparing for relocation to Nashville in July. “My job is to get the audience going. It’s not about me.” – JIm PERKINS”
