Jim Arkus

Folk-Blues and Sword & Sorcery from NJ

Jim Arkus is a singer-songwriter from New Jersey. With an acoustic guitar sound all his own, he draws inspiration from the folk blues of the past, the high lonesome sound of Appalachian murder ballads, and even the power and fury of epic and doom metal. His lyrics explore the worlds of sword & sorcery and other tales of high adventure. Jim’s latest release is the single “Jersey Devil / Lost in the Pine Barrens,” which you can find here: BandCamp, Spotify, YouTube. His most recent album, “No Paths Are Straight and My Sword Is Useless” can be found here: BandCamp, Spotify, YouTube.
