Jim Hoehn is a career 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.

During his journalism career – 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 release is the aptly titled “Collection Notice,” a selection of 15 original songs from his four previous recordings, “Silhouette of a Fool,” “Royalty Check Hotel,” “Deadline Penitentiary,” and “Playa del Pressbox.”

If nothing else, it makes a fabulous drink coaster.

"Hoehn is a master of the rowdy tall tale rendered with novelistic detail." - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Think of Jim Hoehn as Loudon Wainwright III without famous relatives, or Jimmy Buffett without legions of beer-guzzling, neocon weekend warrior fans. He's bright, he's funny, he’s undiscovered." - Dirty Linen
