Jim Alfredson
Jim Alfredson (Lansing, MI) was born into a musical family. His father earned a living as a professional musician for many years and encouraged Jim's talents from a very young age. Some of Jim's earliest memories include pulling on the drawbars of his father's Hammond B-3 at the age of four.
Jim began writing his own songs at the age of 8 on a Yamaha organ. A plethora of synthesizers and multitrack machines followed until he came full circle at age 17 and began lusting after the sound of the Hammond organ once again. Jim has immersed himself in the mighty B-3 ever since, dedicated to the goal of uncovering new directions within the tradition of the organ trio. He is also the organist and musical director of the award-winning Root Doctor band, one of Michigan's premier rhythm & blues groups.
