Jim Messina

Presented by St. Johns County Cultural Events Division at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall

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.  After three successful albums, Jim was ready for a change and left to return to his passion for producing music.  He signed as an independent producer with Columbia Records.

In November 1970, the Columbia asked Jim to work with an unknown Kenny Loggins.  While helping Kenny get ready for a record and touring, the two discovered that they worked well together and Jim agreed to sit in on Kenny’s first album.  Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina Sittin’ In was released in November of 1971 and an accidental duo was formed.
