Jim Pharis is a Louisiana based Modern Acoustic Blues player.
I just wanted to share with you that I got some wonderful compliments about your recent performance.
Our staff said you were extremely professional and talented (they’re musicians, so they would know!) and I heard from several patrons as well that your show was awesome! Thank you so much for being a part of our schedule!"
"Jim Pharis has played for Spirits several
times. We always look forward to his performances. He is an unbelievably talented guitarist and plays a style of music that's not heard often. Good singer and good story teller. Keeps our audiences well entertained."

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.
