Nashville, TN (July 6, 2022)
Former drummer for Hootie & The Blowfish, Jim Sonefeld, has released his new book, Swimming with the Blowfish. The book is an unpretentious, emotional story of one man’s spiritual path to a more fruitful life. The ultimate front-row seat to the rise, fall, and rebirth of a band that was—for a time—the biggest in the world and Jim’s shattering and redeeming spiritual path from addiction to recovery and a more fruitful life.

“We loved, fought, cried, laughed a lot, and did whatever it took to play the music that we knew was very distinctly ours. . . . Jim ‘Soni’ Sonefeld has lived a life that is rife with fun and pain, light and darkness, but always with an amazing amount of love. The way he sees the world is one of a kind and his story is one for the ages.” —from the foreword by Darius Rucker

In Swimming with the Blowfish: Hootie, Healing, and One Hell of a Ride Jim Sonefeld, drummer and one of the group’s principal songwriters, reveals their humble beginnings, meteoric rise, GRAMMY Award-winning musicianship, sudden fall, and ultimate rebirth—and opens his heart to readers about addiction, recovery, and faith.
