JIM EBERT started his musical career at the age of twelve with a Micromoog synth and a Wurlitzer electric piano. After playing the worst version of ”Smoke On The Water” for the five thousandth time, Jim discovered music was going to be his life passion. As a guitarist, vocalist and keyboardist, Jim gigged regularly in the DC area from age 15-21. At 19 he took on the burden of recording his own band and stumbled upon where his true musical gifts lied, the studio. Jim sharpened his talent as chief engineer of Cue recording (VA). Every day was something new at Cue, from recording HR of the Bad Brains, to Buddy Miles, it helped nurture his diverse style. After the success of the double platinum album “If I Ever Fall In Love Again”, Jim’s mixing reputation grew, and so Jim relocated to Los Angeles, CA. Mixing became Jim’s main focus and led him to work with such artists as Ice Cube, Madonna and Toni Braxton. Though Jim was in great demand in the R & B world, he could not get away from his true love, ROCK! So in 1996 Jim decided to work exclusively with rock artist, starting with Jason Falkner’s Solo debut. From there it just rolled on……… Jim now resides on the east coast in the Washington, D.C. area. Jim works with indie, major label and developing artists as a producer and mixer. Jim also shares his passion for music by teaching recording, mixing and producing in small groups and one on one. Check out Jim’s teaching page for more information.

Ihara and his former group Welbilt toured the U.S. extensively from 2002-2006 with Lifehouse, Maroon 5, Live, Pete Yorn, and various other bands and artists. After the split from the group in 2007 he released his first single "If You Want To" written with producer and long time friend Todd Wright. (The song would later be re-released with a new project.) In 2008 he toured playing bass with the now Nashville based group The Blackjacks until 2010. That year he was offered a supporting slot for Memphis, TN band Ingram Hill. Three weeks before the show he formed his current project We Were Kings and debuted the band to a sold out crowd. A month later they entered the studio with friend and producer Mark Williams.
