The new album by Jim Stanard featuring Bethany & Peter Yarrow
Color Outside The Lines once again showcases the troubadour's distinctive song craft, vivid storytelling and unmistakably authentic voice - the same qualities that made listeners and critics take notice of his acclaimed 2018 debut Bucket List. Country Jukebox (Germany) called him "...an intelligent, profound, sometimes thoughtful and humorous observer..." and that vein has only deepened. "I think the main thing that any artist has to offer is his own perspective", states singer-songwriter Jim Stanard. "My songs are about how I see people and how I see the world. I think that's the most important thing an artist can communicate."
From social justice to history to humor, the common thread among Stanard's songs is their resonance - emotional, musical and melodic. Throughout the 11-song album, such indelible Stanard originals as "Home", "Same River", "Witness Protection", "One Time In A Row" and "The Opium Wars" convey wisdom and curiosity, showcasing the artist's uncanny ability to pinpoint fundamental emotional truths.
