An undisputed expert in the fine art of making hit music, Jim Messina’s legacy of musical genius spans five decades and three supergroups: Buffalo Springfield, Poco, and Loggins & Messina.
In November 1970, 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.
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 ever, but it was time for the duo to go their separate ways.
After a series of celebrated solo acoustic tours, Jim formed a band made 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, as well as several of his solo works. Touring the country and playing sold-out shows, Jim says that he’s enjoying discovering who he is, where he’s been, and, most significantly, where he’s going.
