“Jim Colbert has a passion for writing songs that few people have these days. He is a craftsman and a writer who is constantly listening and honing songs that illuminate, narrate, and entertain." - Joe Crookston, singer/songwriter, Ithaca, NY” - Joe Crookston

— Singer/Songwriter

Opening for Red Molly, Jim Colbert entered a room full of strangers and left a room full of fans and friends, all won over by his engaging personality, warm voice, and a set of well-crafted, personal songs. Lyrically and musically Colbert's original This Was What I Wanted would fit right into a set of Gorka, Keelaghan or Wilcox songs. See him wherever you can, and keep your eyes open for his debut CD.” - Gene Frey
