” I love to play other people’s material,” says Jimmy, ”
This is a collection of original songs highlighting a real diversity of styles. “There may be that touch of country in my vocal inflection. That’s just me, but the material itself reflects a much broader range of influences.”
This CD contains five cover tunes and ten originals and spans the spectrum from fingerpicked acoustic country blues for only guitar and voice to full band numbers.
I’ve included covers by Big Bill Broonzy and Reverend Gary Davis to pay my respects to two of the main influences on my fingerpicking style, and one each by Gordon Lightfoot and Bob Dylan and Stevie Winwood. All the rest are my own compositions “The support work by my friends in Australia and Europe is phenomenal.” If you are curious to have a look at what is going on behind the eyes of this one man show, have a listen to this one.
