James Konopasek (Jim Kono and Jimmy K), from Southern Pennsylvania, is a gutsy, truth-seeking, compassionate, singer-songwriter who reflects human joy and tragedy in his lyrics. Much of his folk, country, blues and soft-rock music is inspired by his work in the criminal justice system, the great outdoors, and being raised by hard-working farm/ranch people in Oregon. The influences of Lyle Lovett, James Taylor, Eric Taylor, Alan Jackson, The Eagles, and Lucinda Williams are apparent. Please listen generously and support James in his musical efforts.  Thank you.
