Jim Tullio, aka “Tools,” a Producer of Dorothy Scott's "Pass It On" and a friend and musical associate of Timm Martin for over 30 years, has been in the music industry for over thirty years, as a musician (since 8), a songwriter (a catalog of more than 2,000 compositions) and producer (to date over 38 records).

He even co-wrote a musical about boxer Sonny Liston with stage composer Thom Bishop.

As a producer, Tullio is known for his determination to get the most out of every track. Jim has produced records for such artists' as Richie Havens, Dave Mason, Rick Danko, Rosalie Sorrels, Mary Mc Caslin, David Bromberg, Steve Goodman, and many, many more. He’s just completed Tree Thirteen’s “Rough Grooves Surface, as well as John Martyn’s "On the Cobbles" and Mavis Staples’ “Have a Little Faith."

Tullio has written songs with Los Lonely Boys (million-selling debut album), Rick Danko and Levon Helm of the Band, guitarist Jimmy Weider, Richie Havens, Rita Coolidge, Dave Mason, John Prine, Steve Goodman, David Bromberg, Bonnie Koloc, Michael McDermott, Howard Levy and, as Tullio said, "many, many more."
