Jim Weber has a long track record of music in Nashville, ironic for a singer-songwriter who likes to run long distances (three marathons and six half marathons). Jim started fast out of the blocks with the early eighties Amy Grant hit, “Singing A Love Song,” just six months after he graduated from college. “I had written the song in my dorm room after watching a Nightline story on Donna Summer. She was the hottest thing around at the time, and I was a wanna-be songwriter. So I wrote about those feelings, not knowing that a year later the song would grant its own wish.”
During the following decades Jim’s songs would be recorded by other well-known contemporary Christian music artists, including Debby Boone, Kathy Troccoli, Billy Sprague, and the Imperials, as well as popular Gospel artists like Helen Baylor and the Goodman Family. Thousands of youth choirs performed Jim’s two Dove Award winning musicals, The Race Is On and Friends…forever, co-written with Billy Sprague and Nan Gurley.
Jim Weber is a recording artist as well as a songwriter. He has released seven albums and is currently at work on number eight. Weber’s sensitive lyrics explore the depths of the heart. His song “Can’t Talk,” a poignant description of the alienation between teens and parents, is still received in tearful silence by audiences of all ages. Weber’s musical style is rhythmic acoustic guitar rock. Whether the song is quiet finger-picking, swampy blues or driving rock’n’roll, you can feel the phantom drummer, even when Jim is playing solo.
