John Brim was born in April of 1922 on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. He soon came under the spell of music and taught himself the rudiments of the blues harmonica. By the time of his teens he started to pick up chords and notes on the guitar heavily influenced by what he heard on the scratchy 78 rpm recordings he heard by Tampa Red, Big Bill Broonzy, and Peetie Wheatstraw. After refining his musicianship to where he believed he could hold his own, he left Kentucky for Indianapolis and by the time he was in his mid twenties he moved to Chicago. Beginning in 1945 Brim became part of the Chicago blues scene and worked with and crossed paths with such stalwarts of the time as Muddy Waters, Memphis Minnie, Big Bill Broonzy, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Big Maceo Merriwhether...

...In 1989 Brim recorded a CD with Pinetop Perkins, and five years later recorded a CD called "Ice Cream Man" for Tone-Cool # 1150. In June of 1999, his life and musical partner Grace Brim passed away after 52 years together. Four years later in 2003, John Brim passed at the age of 81.
