Jim Photoglo has musically spanned four decades as both a songwriter and artist, bringing his unique creative voice to the R&B, pop and country arenas. His solo career took off when he was signed to the Twentieth Century Fox label in 1979, culminating in a pair of hit singles: "We Were Meant To Be Lovers" in 1980 and "Fool in Love With You" in 1981. Photoglo hit the TV talk show circuit, toured the Orient twice, and opened for the Beach Boys on a national tour. He spent 2 years singing back-up for Andy Gibb while he concentrating on songwriting.

Photoglo's eclectic style fostered recordings by a variety of artists, including James Ingram, the Everly Brothers, Kenny Rogers, Marty Robbins, Gary Morris and Brenda Lee. While he took the occasional tour as a bassist for the likes of Vince Gill and Dan Fogelberg, his songs were recorded by Dusty Springfield, Leroy Parnell, Patty Loveless, Highway 101, The Oak Ridge Boys, Pam Tillis, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Neil McCoy, John Anderson and Kathy Mattea. Four of those recordings ended up in the Top Ten of Billboard Magazine's Country Music Charts, and two went to Number One: the now-classic "Fishin' in the Dark" by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and "Hometown Honeymoon" by Alabama. He has also been part of the successful bands Run C&W and the Vinyl Kings. Jim Photoglo is currently promoting two recent solo CD releases, Fly Straight Home and Sparks In The Radio.
