Bio-
"James 'Jim Cat' Ellis was born in 1981, the youngest of 8 brothers and sisters. He was drawn to the fast life and allure of music around the age of 14, and has been doing his own original music since. His talents include songwriting, rapping and freestyling, playing the keyboard and producing his own beats, as well as being able to sing a variety of different genres of music. James developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome in 2006 after a bad reaction to antibiotics. The doctors gave him a 20% chance of living, and told him he would most likely end up blind and never able to speak clearly or sing again. After coming out of a coma, he fought for his life for months on end and still bares the scars of this horrible disease. He beat the odds and after a run-in with law enforcement, he decided to devote his life solely to pursuing a career in the music industry."

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
