Jim Keller (from the album Spark and Flame available on Jim Keller/Continental Record Service) (by Bryant Liggett)
Jim Keller has got a career defining writing credit under his belt, but don’t define his accomplishments because of said credit. A co-writer of “867-5309/Jenny”, a few hundred customers have likely had to change their phone numbers due to an unfortunate coincidence, but better for Keller its likely resulted in a healthy paycheck on the occasion.
However, the dude’s knocked out a lot more kicking around both the glamorous and not-so sides of the music business. When he’s taking time to release a record he does so quite well, his latest in Spark & Flame being a down-beat collection of late-night and early morning vibes.
Jim Keller can sing some sadness. Cuts like the album opener “Falling Down” or “Magic” crawl at their own pace; they’re personal songs and something you can lyrically latch on to. Then there’s a fun cut like “Tower of Love”, which is dirty and dark, 21st century lounge music, or “Sparkle” which is chock-full of early 80’s, progressive-roots jangle. There’s a fun, laid back and casual groove in “Learning to Crawl” and “Fight to Fight” is ripe for the modern rock scene. But the gem of the record is “When You’re a Rock”, Jim Keller’s deadpan delivery serving as the narration for your own gritty autobiography, scoring the movie in your head. (by Bryant Liggett)
