Decades long fixture in the Seattle music community, folk singer/songwriter Jim Page is releasing The Time Is Now April 16th, 2022. Featuring 11 lilting, American folk roots tracks sprinkled with saxophone, lap steel guitars, and lush backing vocals from Seattle’s J.R. Rhodes, The Time Is Now is Jim’s 24th album of original music. With songs touching on themes of street uprisings, climate change and corporate greed mixing with observations of the everyday, The Time Is Now lovingly speaks to our time and to the humanity that animates it. 

Jim has shared stages with Bonnie Raitt and Joan Baez and has had songs covered by artists like the Doobie Brothers and Irish songwriter Christy Moore, who recently recorded The Time Is Now’s “Down To Zero” as “Clock Winds Down”, to wide-reaching critical acclaim. 

“Jim's been writing great topical songs for as long as I can remember, bringing his acute wit and wry humor to a host of subjects that can really use both. In the tradition of Woody and Dylan, he cuts right to the heart with music you actually enjoy listening to. I'm a longtime admirer." Bonnie Raitt

Jim will be performing in Seattle April 9th at Hale’s Palladium and internationally at the William Morris Public House in Walthamstow, London on August 3rd.
