Jim O’Neill is in town!


Layin’ Down Sideways 


Rise and Shine 

Jim speaks on his Successes:

“I built a home studio in 2008; this is where I do most of my recording work. I primarily use Ableton Live, ProTools and Reason in the studio and on stage. I’ve been surrounded by so many amazing musicians over the years that it’s hard to list everyone, but as of late, I have had the privilege of working with these fine folks: Alison Scott, Kevin Bowe, Steve Price, Peter Anderson, Freedy Johnston, Brian Just, Justin Hartke, Mark O’Day, Greg Schutte, Aaron McCabe, Michael McGarthwaite, Josie Schmitt, Michael Sutton, Ryan Traster, just to name a few… During my childhood, I was very fortunate to study with pianist Jimmy Hamilton for many years; I credit him immensely for providing me with a strong musical foundation.”


Jim O’Neill is a Twin Cities musician who sings, plays keyboards, guitars, bass and produces independent albums. He provides organ/keyboard/backing vocals in the Alison Scott Band. He leads his own band, The Brain Clouds. He occasionally has the pleasure of playing keyboards for Freedy Johnston. Jim is also the bassist in the Brian Just Band, a group he produced and recorded between 2010 – 2011. Their album, “If You Like To Be Alone, Or If You Need To Be With Someone,” has received wonderful reviews and the single “Electric” gained loads of airplay on 89.3-The Current. Their live performance of “Electric” on The Local Show was chosen to be featured on The Current’s 2012 “Local Sampler: Volume 2.” Jim also works as a session musician for Platinum-selling producer Kevin Bowe.

Featuring… Postina

Heart In Mine
Letting Go

“Minneapolis alternarockers Postina rose to fame in the summer of 2009 when they made the finals of the Cities 97 Basilica Block Party Battle of the Bands competition only six short months after having formed. With thoughtful songwriting and energetic pop hooks, the quartet’s sound is defined by the delicate vocals of Joelle Benson and prominent bass lines of Josh Walton.

Quickly capitalizing on their initial success, the band headed to the recording studio last fall to cut their first record. The result is The Road, a six-song EP which ought to provide the next step in the band’s forward progress.” – Jeff Gage, City Pages

As for the rest of the band – Andy Root’s well-crafted guitar parts and compelling lyrics convey the depth of experience the band has lived; Dave Donovan plays the drums with an unmistakable finesse and brilliance that brings intensity to the music. In 2010 Postina welcomed Dylan Randolph, whose electronica-synth style and memorable counter melodies complement the Postina AlternaPop Rock sound and at the end of 2011 Faith Eskola began performing with Postina, adding beautifully, dramatic, classical violin and vocal harmonies to the mix.

Postina’s live performance extends beyond music with painters joining them on stage during their set making their show even more visually compelling and experiential by bringing together two synergistic forms of art.
