I am pleased to announce that Nashville Producer and Songwriter – and one hell of a guitar player, Jim “ Jimmy Ritchie “ is now part of our ROCK IT –DAVID SHRIVER TRIBUTE team! Usually hanging out with the likes of George Strait and Pam Tillis on stage and studio, Jim Ritchey has manipulated some scheduling in order to help us out in the good Spirit and memory of our dear friend David.
Not only have I known Jimmy as a friend and fellow musician since he was just a young boy, I have watched him grow to become the artist and music professional that he is today. His roots are firmly planted in Lewis County Washington where his father and other family members still reside. Jim has been a friend to my co-producer Calvin Taylor for an equal span of time and, over the years Calvin, who teaches electronics at Centralia College has played many professional shows with Jimmy and I might add, has probably repaired and amp or two for him! Many musicians and artists like Backfire Band and Ben Potter Band here in Lewis County can also call Jimmy their musical brother as many of us have been lucky to stay in contact even though he made another life, and a big one – many miles away. Jimmy is the down home boy who really applied himself to his crafts and became a Top-rated musician, engineer, producer and songwriter in Nashville with nearly two decades of perseverance and good old fashioned hard work!
