Key of Awesome

Hosted by Jim Gaven

“Armed with the goal of helping others, Jim Gaven’s mission is to write songs that make you think of a good time in your life, make you feel good about yourself, and most of all, put a smile on your face. The upbeat singer/songwriter from Hamilton, NJ wants to make a positive difference in the world and truly believes that music has the ability to do that. Quoted as saying, ‘I want to inspire you to do great things as I have been inspired. The fact that you can create something out of nothing and have it last forever is amazing to me.’ This is a true testament to the everlasting impact we can all have on each other, and Jim hopes to bring that kind of attitude to the forefront through song.

To hear Jim’s music, feel free to frequent www.keyofawesomemusic.com as well as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud. 

In addition to this, Jim is a published author, www.lulu.com/spotlight/jimgaven  and www.allaboutalliterations.wordpress.com. Founder/CEO of music publishing company, Key of Awesome Music, LLC (www.facebook.com/keyofawesomemusic) who has successfully placed songs on TV shows, commercials, background/in-store channels/stations for 10 artists. His latest focus with the company is making it a mission based music service to improve the quality of life for those in a time of need (the main focus is Alzheimer’s/Dementia Care units in nursing homes/assisted living facilities, developmentally disabled day programs, community music nights, branching out into mental health organizations, drug and alcohol counseling centers, safe houses, homeless shelters, veterans, and hospitals). 

From individual lessons to group sessions to interactive live performances to consulting, making a difference through music is at the core with programs specifically designed to evoke emotions of faith, hope, and love.”
