Rock Is Forever

Jim Smiley

Jim Smiley is a 22 year old underground Hip-Hop artist from Central Illinois, by way of Chicago.  Smiley is creating a sound that shatters the belief that underground artists can’t make music appealing to the masses. Jim has been writing, and performing music for 7 years, perfecting his songwriting and live shows. There is little uncharted territory in Illinois for him. Jim has performed everywhere from downtown Chicago in front of the Columbia College student body; all the way to Southern Illinois, including the legendary Pop’s Venue.
Jim is currently working with BMI publisher Jeff Massive to further his career as a hip-hop artist. Jim Smiley is currently in the process of completing his full length project “I’m Not Crazy”.  And has already released “Superhero Music Mixtape” in January of 2011. The mixtape was well received by fans, his peers, and critics alike.
