Jim Page was named by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine as “One Of The 50 Most Influential Musicians In Seattle History.” He has recorded 24 albums over the course of a 50-plus year career and written a mountain of songs. Originally from California, Page has called Seattle home since 1971. In ‘74 he led a successful movement to legalize busking (street performing) in Seattle, where it had been illegal for decades. The city is a now a magnet for all the street arts, and in 2014 Jim was presented with an officialproclamation by the Seattle City Council in recognition of this accomplishment. His songs have been covered by The Doobie Brothers, Christy Moore, Dick Gaughan, Michael Hedges, and Roy Bailey. He has toured in 13 countries including the US, Canada, Ireland, the UK, most of northern Europe, and Taiwan. Bonnie Raitt said: “Jim's been writing great topical songs for as long as I can remember. In the tradition of Woody and Dylan, he cuts right to the heart with music you actually enjoy listening to. I'm a longtime admirer.” The late Utah Phillips said: “If you’re ever going to get the message, this is the messenger to get it from.”
