  Original Songs

  Vocalist

"McGorman's vocal is a very distinctive one indeed. Imagine John Mayer with more edge and twice the range where the high register has a distant resemblance but the definitive sensibility of Mick Hucknall (of Simply Red) especially during the ballads. But he can carry a beautiful low register as well ... He sings effortlessly."
( From our review of "The World Is Falling Down" for www.hanson.net  )

Jim sings lead on six tracks of "The Corey Elliott Song Collection"

avrilthumb.jpg    Backing Avril Lavigne

In early 2007, Jim joined Avril Lavigne's band. He became a musical director for The Best Damn Tour in 2008. He is her principal backup singer and you can hear him A LOT. Also, Jim's rhythm/acoustic guitar is an integral part of the sound of this incredibly thight band.

We can't post much due to the fact that Avril, as one of the biggest musical acts of today, has millions of fans and it would create a lot of unnecessary traffic. But this performance pretty sums up the role of Jim. A BIG one too. Check out some of our numerous video clips to see the musical and performing chemistry between the two of them.
