​James Pautler

Keyboards and Background Vocals


A lawyer by day, and a musician by night, Jim treasures music as a creative alternative to his day job. 

Classically trained since age 5, Jim attended The Cornish Institute in the late 70’s, focusing on jazz performance and arranging. 

His favorite bands include Earth Wind & Fire, The Beatles, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Billy Joel, Elton John, and Tower of Power.

His favorite non-musical activity is taking a drive in a convertible on a warm summer evening with his wife.  His favorite movie is True Lies, and his favorite quote is: 

You are as your deep, driving desire;
As is your desire, so is your will;
As is your will, so is your deed;
As is your deed, so is your destiny.
