The Jimmy




I have been playing in bands for the last 20 years. I consider myself a songwriter first, a guitarist second and a vocalist third. I am drawn to music that has a lot of dynamics. I love light and shade in songwriting. I like music that is played simply, powerfully and straight from the heart. I have been in a band for the past 7 years doing originals mixed with covers. I really enjoy the camaraderie of playing with other musicians. I am also in a acoustic band called Mamasan. We do some originals and lesser known covers.
