Hi and welcome to my online home! 

My name is Jim Pharis. I play Modern Acoustic Blues, a blend of classic acoustic blues, original songs and guitar instrumentals.

I hope that you'll take a few minutes to check out the music, videos and reviews that you find here.

I'd love to give you a gift of free music as a thanks for visiting my site. Click the arrow and take a listen to High Mileage. If you're made of what it takes to deal with these tough times, then it's the song for you.

Thanks for stopping by!


"The rusting pickup truck on the cover of High Mileage, the third full-length album from Louisiana-based singer-songwriter Jim Pharis, is the
subject of the collection’s cantering, bent-note title track.

Over a stinging razor-wire riff, Pharis’ weathered, fraying vocal compares the automotive hulk to his own biological shell. He concludes that both may be battered but they’ll get the job done, an attitude that serves as the theme for this set of originals and country blues and gospel covers.

Pharis does more than accept human frailties here; he cherishes them with infectious good humor."
