About Jim Messina

An undisputed expert in the fine art of making hit music, Jim Messina’s legacy of musical genius spans five decades, three super groups, a vibrant solo career, and scores of producing and engineering credits.

While acting as producer/audio engineer for Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Buffalo Springfield, Messina ultimately joined the band as its bass player. When “the Springfield” disbanded in 1968, Jim and fellow bandmate Richie Furay formed Poco. With Jim on lead guitar, Poco defined a new musical genre, Country Rock, resulting in three successful albums.  

Over the next seven years, Loggins & Messina released eight hit albums, had scores of hit songs, and sold over 16 million albums. They had become one of rock’s most successful recording duos, but it was time for them to go their separate ways.

After a series of celebrated solo acoustic tours, Jim formed a band of acclaimed musicians who have played with him at various points in his career. His latest release, In the Groove, includes selected hits from all three of Jim’s previous bands and several of his solo works.

Touring the country and playing sold-out shows, Jim says he’s enjoying discovering who he is, where he’s been, and, most significantly, where he’s going.
