Jim Hoehn: Home
Jim Hoehn is a Milwaukee-based journalist/author/songwriter who has carved out a surprisingly successful niche as a performing songwriter since first stumbling out of the pressbox with a guitar.
As a career journalist - much of it spent as a sportswriter - Hoehn has covered everything from plane crashes to murder trials to the Super Bowl and the Hong Kong 7s rugby tournament. As a source of family editorial pride, he's also the guy who broke the Jeffrey Dahmer story for the National Enquirer.
His latest recording project, "Silhouette of a Fool," includes 10 original songs brought to life under the production guidance of Milwaukee's John Sieger. (Shepherd Express review)

Back in the pressbox !!!
In addition to the summer music gigs, I'm fortunate to be back in the pressbox on occasion, covering the Brewers for AP, MLB.com and other outlets. After all these years, it remains a privilege. There's no such thing as a bad day at the ballpark. As Ernie Banks said, "Let's play two." Here's a link to the majority of my stories for AP.

Opening for Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers
Shank Hall, June 17
Just announced. Opening for Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers at Shank Hall in Milwaukee, Wis. on Tuesday, June 17. Show starts at 8 p.m., tickets $15.
Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers made a needle's-eye leap onto the national music circuit in 2012, bringing with them a refreshing sound, spirited stage show and wellspring of good vibes, along with a turntable and milk crates stocked with their favorite vintage vinyl for backstage sustenance.
Now, the San Francisco-based band and its striking front woman with a girl-next-door demeanor step out with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, a luminous, heartfelt patchwork of California folk-rock, brisk Americana and show-stopping soul, punctuated with fresh four-part harmonies, crisp rock guitar and Nicki's soaring, nuanced vocals that some critics say remind them of Linda Ronstadt.
