Webster’s Dictionary defines a “band” as “a group of people joined together for a common purpose”. Nashville Bound is just such a band, founded by Jim Putnam to record country versions of some of the songs he has written. When Putnam writes songs they are genre neutral, meaning they can be arranged in a variety of styles and genres. His words and music are stories that are flexible and the truth in his words seems to work no matter what the style. Once the instrumentation is determined the musicians needed for that track are assembled and asked to help create the final version of the song, actively participating in the creative development of the final cut. This creative input is something they are seldom given the chance to contribute. All recording, mixing and mastering is done in Nashville. Seasoned, road tested musicians with exceptional talent perform, most are masters of multiple instruments, and all experienced in both studio and major live venues having worked with a literal whose who of major country artists. The result is magic in the studio and electric in live performance. That is Nashville Bound. Music has no borders and great music has no limitations and that is the way Nashville Bound approaches the studio where 26 songs have already been recorded, mixed and mastered In Nashville for release. The next set of recordings will include an expanded international blend of classical musicians and singers. It is the kind of challenge Putnam thrives upon. Stay tuned to Nashville Bound where the decades of experience, story collecting, musical experimenting, directing, producing and performing come together in the songs of Jim Putnam and the music of Nashville Bound..
