"Jim Stärk" is a Norwegian pop band formed in 2000. While it is known for melodic, at times melancholy, guitar based songs influenced by folk musicians like Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan, Jim Stärk has a distinct musical profile. The band's songs, some of which have attained hit status, are marked by easily recognizable musical lines, yet both its roots and lyrics are somewhat eclectic.
