Singer/songwriter James Stanley Howen (Jimmy to his
friends) has many years of performing both in bands
and as an acoustic artist behind him. While playing
the songs of some of the greatest singer/songwriters
in the American tradition like John Prine, Rodney
Crowell and Merle Haggard has influenced his original
music, Jimmy has found his own voice as singer and
songwriter. The sounds of Americana, Classic Country
and Southern Rock all make their marks on Jimmy's
music.

On his first full length CD, Jimmy presents a serie
of songs written by him, lyricist Harry Hamm and
producer Donny Weber. From the timeless imagery of
"Where the Mighty Rivers Meet," to the humor of
"Beside Myself" and "Some Guys Have All the Luck" and
the reflections of "I Owe it All to You" and "Too Late
to Say I Love You," Jimmy and Harry's songs cover the
emotional gamut. The mix of traditional acoustic
instruments with modern electronics reflect Jimmy's
roots in the American tradition and his openness to
new experiences and influences.....Mark Douglas Marti 6/15/05.

Brother Jimmy, over the years, at least going on two decades, you have been a constant support and friend not only to me but for so many musicians and songwriters at this venue. You are an amazing and steadfast Friend.. You seem to just know that true human nature that surrounds us and always remain you, respectful and true. Never change for you are a strength that holds your many friends together.
Peace and Harmony Songwriter, Always

Thanks, Jimmy, for the congrats on my page re the two Golden Kayak wins. I didn’t give any of the nominations that I had much if any chance of winning. I don’t know where the votes came from or even how many there were.

With your song, “Prisoner Of My Heart” right up there near the top of the Country and All Genres charts I thought it would have been a shoo-in for the Country Golden Kayak. What do I know!!




The Golden GRANNY Awards

3/8/2020 2:46:01 PM
The panel at GGA have decided that you deserve to receive a GRANNY for your contribution to Indie music

Congratulations, Jimmy. on "Where The Mighty Rivers Meet" topping the All Genres and Country Charts.

The song is the first song of yours that I heard when I first met you way back in My Space days years ago, and I've loved it ever since.

Thank you, Jimmy, for stopping by my page, and about the Golden Kayak nominations - no one was more surprised than I. In any event, it is an honour to be nominated by one's peers, and to have the opportunity to share the event with fellow nominees.

Congratulations on the success of your songs on the IMP Play Charts, Jimmy. I love to see that happening for you.

I still have hope that not too far down the road before I hang up my spurs that the trail leads to that fireside where you and I and Roy and Les turn our guitars and voices into the sounds of the shifting whispering sands of time.

Wishing you all the best, always.

Cowboy

Congratulations again to Mark Hoekstra for winning the Golden Kayak for 2016 Best Blues Song and to you on your nomination for Best Country Song for your great song, "Dreams of a Boy".

Congratulations are in high order to you as well for assembling the amazing group of artists / musicians along with yourself for The Mighty Rivers Project and for your special role and part in writing the songs for the album project, and for dominating the IMP charts for weeks with many of the songs on the album.

The CD is on autoplay here, and has been and continues to be greatly enjoyed many times over. It is a classic, Jimmy, just like you in every respect.

Hi All,

My song "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET" was nominated for best Country Song Of The Year by IAIA (International Academy of Independent Artist) for a Golden Kayak Award. (2007)

I was very surprised and honored by this. Though I didn't win it was great to be picked for it. I was very happy that my buddy Neil w. Young won the Golden Kayak for Best Country Song Of The year with his THE COWBOY SONG.

I would like to congratulate all the nominees and especially the winners this year.

I would like to thank all those who have ever taken time to listen. Also to all the great e-mails from the many music lovers who said wonderful things about "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET". To all the people who have supported my singer/songwriter quest for so many years. To all of the Artist friends I have made on Myspace and KIAC Internet Radio. To the members and my peers of the International Academy of Independent Artist.

I would also like to thank and share this honor with my co-writers and producers Harry Hamm (Executive Producer) and Don Weber (Music Producer and Engineer).

I would also like to thank and share this honor with the great musicians that contributed tracks on "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET". Geoff Landon - Harmony Vocals, Don Weber - Guitars, Russ Brunner - Dobro, Nathan Lee - Flute & Banjo, Tommy Greywolf - Fiddle, Mike Spellman - Bass Guitar and Scott Mottet - Percussion.


I would like to thank the INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF INDEPENDENT ARTIST for this much honored nomination.

Sincerely, Jimmy

Hi All,
This a video made by Roy and Wendy Muniz for "Where The Mighty Rivers Meet" which was a song on my 2005 released "Side By Side" CD.
Thank you Roy and Wendy and you both are very special and I am honored to have you both as friends. Wendy took this footage parts of three different rivers. In Montana and Idaho for this video.
I hope you enjoy it as I did!
Jimmy
