Jim Bone & the Dig
Born in Little Rock, Arkansas (with four years spent in Germany thanks to his dad, an Army doctor), Jim Bone found his way to Salt Lake City where he began ski training for the Winter Olympics. After relocating to the Sierras of Northern California, he found himself immersed in the music and culture of West Coast psychedelic and punk rock.
After returning to Salt Lake City, he started Burial Benefits with Eric Platske, Skin N’ Bones with Gary Turnier, and later joined Little Women as a drummer. After touring with Little Women for a while, his daughter was born, after which he found himself as one of the founders of the Jackmormons with fellow songwriter Jerry Joseph of Widespread Panic and the Drive-By Truckers. Despite taking a break to become a social worker, he eventually started Purdymouth with some friends such as Derrek Wright, producing three records together. He recently released a double LP and continues to perform at bars and venues across Utah.
