Jim Photoglo Releases First Album In Five Years 'Halls Of My Heart'

Nashville, TN-based folk singer/songwriter Jim Photoglo has released his first album in five years, Halls of My Heart. Impacting radio July 29, it is Photoglo's first album on which he has written a majority of the tracks solo.
 
"I've written for a lot of other artists and co-written most of my own music in the past," Photoglo says. "Since I wrote most of these songs alone, it was an opportunity for me to be extremely honest and explore some very personal experiences."
 
Halls of My Heart opens with a call to put aside one's troubles in the Celtic-flavored Try Me Tomorrow. The drivingBrown-Eyed Boy celebrates the immigrants who've helped make this country strong, while Brothers Medley (a Staples Singers-style a cappella number), pays respect to Jim's musical heroes. The lilting Liliana pays tribute to his nature-loving wife, while In My Father's Son explores Photoglo's troubled relationship with his father.
 
After a solo pop career (featuring the hits We Were Meant To Be Lovers and Fool in Love With You), Photoglo moved to Nashville in 1984 to concentrate full-time on songwriting (although occasionally toured as a bassist for Carole King, Vince Gill and Dan Fogelberg). Among his cuts are tracks by Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, The Everly Brothers, Dusty Springfield, Leroy Parnell, Patty Loveless, Highway 101, The Oak Ridge Boys, Pam Tillis, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Neil McCoy, John Anderson and Kathy Mattea. Included among these are the #1 singles Fishin' In The Dark by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Hometown Honeymoon by Alabama.
 
In the 90s, Photoglo, Russell Smith (The Amazing Rhythm Aces), Bernie Leadon (The Eagles) and hit-songwriter Vince Melamed formed the cult band Run C&W. Around the same time, he co-founded the band the Vinyl Kings, formerly known as The Fabulous Del-Beatles, a group of studio all-stars, which became the toast of the town. Photoglo has released three previous CDs on Grifftone Records: Fly Straight Home, Sparks in the Radio (#30 on the Folk DJ Best Albums of 2005 list), and the #1, GRAMMY-nominated album Is It Me?
