Event

Jim Trick and Christopher Williams at the me&thee
Jim Trick
Imagine an experience where an entire audience feels like they are connected to a conversation; whether thru his music or his words, he brings a real life perspective, with an engaging and entertaining presence to the room. Joyful, sincere and magnetic are just a few of the words to describe Jim Trick.

"His gentle and authentic stage presence combined with awesome songwriting make for a delightful show."  No Depression Magazine

As a child, he was bullied for choosing music over sports, for having a funny last name and for struggling with obesity. Through his experiences he delivers a blend of alternative folk, thoughtful pop, and spoken word.   Influenced by Neil Finn, Bruce Cockburn, John Gorka and Charles Bukowski; Trick takes the acoustic guitar down a path of percussive, intricate, and ethereal ranges creating well thought out melodic support for carefully crafted lyrics.

"One of New England's top songwriters"  Berklee College of Music

Boston has welcomed Jim with open arms, as a solo artist, to play as a regular at iconic venues such as Club Passim, The Me&Thee Coffeehouse, Berklee's Cafe 939 and the New Moon Coffeehouse, just to name a few. He has shared the stage with Ellis Paul, Brooks Williams, Susan Werner, Martyn Joseph and Christopher Williams.

"One of the brightest songwriters and storytellers coming out of the north east these days is a man named Jim Trick. With the ability to draw an audience into his world, Jim is a brilliant communicator who is definitely worth the effort to go see."  Grandfather Rock from WCWP 88.1 FM Brooklyn

Everything you need", co-written with Christopher Williams, was recently released on Christopher's album "The City Makes the Man". Trick and Rachel Taylor co-wrote, "You Might Be Surprised", a song released on the album "Heartbreak is for Everyone", which was produced by Peter Hayes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

His most recent release, Further From the Tree, produced by Michael Pritzl of The Violet Burning, was fully funded by his loyal fan base during a four week "Trick-Starter" campaign.  The album features the song "A road called home" co-written with Nashville's Rachel Taylor. It depicts a recent trip in which Jim and his wife Alison, traveled 10,500 miles all over the United States, not knowing from night to night where they would sleep.

"We needed an epic adventure. In many ways, the song and trip were a line we drew in the sand in terms of how we want to live our lives going forward. In some crazy way, this album is propelling us into a truer version of life, steeped in freedom and satisfying a wild curiosity."  Jim Trick

As a touring member of Banding People Together, Jim also travels all over the United States using music and behavioral science to help companies create collaborative strategies and improve leadership.


Christopher Williams
Hailing from Nashville, but nothing like your typical Nashville songwriter, Christopher Williams is a songwriter, storyteller, and entertainer - offering songs that are honest and confessional, yet never overbearing; and performances that engage audiences with an appealing mix of intense passion and humor.  With "lush guitar work, and sweet soaring vocals," (Boston Phoenix) punctuated by the percussive vulnerability of a single African djembe hand drum, Williams is a "hard-touring singer-songwriter and a master at spreading his personal energy out into a live audience." (Madison Isthmus) Touring nonstop nationally for the last ten years at a pace of more than 130 shows a year, Williams has built a faithful following of listeners around the country and is a true independent artist, releasing eight records on his own label. He has toured with Grammy Award winning band Jars of Clay, opening for, as well as playing percussion with (including their mainstage performance at the incredible Live 8 concert in Philadelphia). And has also played with songwriter luminaries Arlo Guthrie, Phil Keaggy, and David Wilcox. Williams has a heart for social justice issues and supports Blood:Water Mission and International Justice Mission and his newest studio release, 'Sweet Redemption,' showcases songs about his recent trips to Kenya and Uganda. Recently, he had the opportunity to contribute music to a USAID documentary film and attend the sponsored screening with the former First Lady, Laura Bush, in Washington, DC, and also play the International Justice Mission 10th Anniversary Banquet. His latest release is a new live recording, called 'Something As Simple,' that features the honesty of a true live performance with stories, the signature djembe playing and his unique guitar style. Recorded in the famed listening room, Club Passim in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. where all the songwriting greats have played, this CD is a must for fans of Williams' music.
