For many years, Jim Davison worked as a lobsterman. He spent countless hours on the water, listening to the pounding surf and constant warning of the bell buoys. After a time, it occurred to him that other may also enjoy the reassuring sound of the bell buoys. He began recording the sounds of the bell and gong buoys where he hauled his lobster traps. After painstakingly working pieces of steel to match the tones, he began producing bells which recall the same haunting, yet comforting sounds, leading to the birth of North Country Wind Bells.
