California Composer Jim Underwood is a remarkably inventive multi-instrumentalist. As a touring musician and an independent producer he brings a jaw-dropping versatility and playful creativity to his work. As a former copywriter for a major East Coast AM-FM radio station, he understands the musical constraints of voiceover work as well as the nuances of incidental pieces. Through his association with Live Nation, he’s worked for numerous national acts including Bruce Springsteen, Norah Jones, Tori Amos, and others. We are psyched to have Jim on board with his hot new tracks!
Jim Underwood often refers to himself as a singer/songwriter and obscure novelist. Actually, his fiction has been published by Warner Books in the United States and overseas and by both Crown and E.P. Dutton. (non-fiction) He’s currently writing a screenplay, but assures us his first love is music.
A few soft notes from a Hammond B-3 lead into a soaring melody balanced against a rhythm reflecting the restrained but always potent energy of a quiet sea. Reminiscent of the Ventures surf band at their height complete with period correct Mosrite electric Guitar. Great background for sea and sunset. Instrumental, Rock, Surf Rock
A theme that screams impending action. A high flying Stratocaster over a bed of aggressive drums and driving bass, intertwined with an organ line with something to say. For that scene when a determined hero is marching into the final climax, his jaw clenched his gait purposeful. Look out bad guys... Instrumental, Rock, 60s Rock
A tip of the hat to the Ventures surf band with pounding drums, shimmering vintage Mosrite guitars, reversed symbol splashes and an airy organ interlaced with a few surprises. Surf's up Dude... Great for promos and clips of all types of So. Cal. and particularly beach related activities. Instrumental, Rock, 60s Rock
A high energy track with an "in your face" sixties vibe very reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and Cream. Useful as a bed for commercials that employ images and graphics as opposed to voiceover, or as a film or TV underscore for scenes set in the era. Multiple edits available. Instrumental, Rock, British Invasion
Picture a lone surfer out on his board waiting for that last wave of the day before he has to pack it in, and then it comes... Like the Ventures surf band complete with Mosrite electric guitars, drums, organ, bass. This one has a transistion. Paddle on Dude and then get up for one last ride... Instrumental, Rock, Surf Rock
Driving surf rock rhythm with the clean shimmer of a vintage Mosrite electric guitar and the counter melody of a Hammond B-3 backed by pounding bass and drums culminating in the thunderous roar of crashing waves against a rocky shore. Great for So Cal action or beach scenes. Like classic Ventures. Instrumental, Rock, Surf Rock
A tip of the hat to the Ventures surf band complete with vintage Mosrite guitars, high energy drums, a lead guitar line that will remind you of Dick Dale and an organ counter melody to keep things moving. The sky is dark. The wave is is building. Point your board toward the beach and good luck. Instrumental, Rock, Surf Rock
As if Morrison and Hendrix met, shared pharmaceuticals then gradually fought their way back to consciousness. Hard-edged intro with a jolting transition into an other-worldly sequence then back again. Great backdrop for a scene involving unintended consequences. Strat, drums, bass, pad, weirdness. Instrumental, Rock, 60s Rock
Hard driving and edgy voice over bed opening with an attention grabbing device. Meant to lay a foundation under that "screamer" promo. High energy throughout. Great for extreme sports, concerts, and anything that needs an "in your face" sales approach. Lots of crunch and bite with aggressive drums. Instrumental, Rock, Thrash Metal
