About the Author
Jim Reilly is a writer, journalist, musician and teacher currently living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. His first Stick, #492 Oak Grand Stick grouped into seven melody and five bass strings arrived on December 17, 1993 at about 11:30 am. (In truth, he was a Stick player long before that, but that’s a story for another day.) His first thought as he opened up the white, hardshell flight case and looked down on his new instrument was, “What the hell have I gotten myself into now?” Over the years, he’s played oak, ironwood and graphite Sticks. His main instrument now is a prototype model that was made in conjunction with the German company BassLab. The BassLab Sticks never went into full production. Since 1993, Jim has played Stick across North America, hosted and taught at Stick seminars, demoed instruments at NAMM Shows in Anaheim, California and been featured on CBC Radio One in Canada. His writing has been featured in several music magazines and online. His short novel, The Bass Player, is currently available here: https://www.createspace.com/4950709 and at amazon.com. He can be found on Facebook (search Jim Reilly Creative) and reached by email at email@example.com.
