Jim Mize has been profiled in numerous lengthy articles run by local publications such as the Arkansas Times, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and the Oxford American. Descriptions of his work range from “haunted” to “primal” to “gorgeously indelible.” Acclaimed online music resource Elmore Magazine states, “Like the best of southern songwriters, he paints detailed, often stark character portraits and delivers his tales mostly with unadorned rock n’ roll – bar room style… Arkansas residents may be fortunate enough to see Mize live. The rest of us may need to wait a few years unless [Mize’s self-titled album released in 2014 by Big Legal Mess Records and distributed by Fat Possum Records] explodes on radio. It’s… one of this year’s best surprises.”
