JIMMY RECENTLY SUPPORTED LUCINDA WILLIAMS ON HER UK TOUR STARTING JUNE 17TH AT THE BARBICAN IN LONDON. He will be doing his first HEADLINE UK TOUR IN JAN/FEB 2013. Details now available on Live page
Following the single Desert Song, Jimmy’s debut album, One eye open, one eye closed, was released in March 2013. It was recorded between London and Los Angeles via Nottingham and the Mojave desert on borrowed time in studios, big and small, in lounges, garages, bedrooms, basements and a church.
There’s a lot of buzz about it ….
THE DAILY TELEGRAPH… ’Of more modern vintage is a very promising debut album from Jimmy livingstone, called One eye open, one eye closed. Black Country Girl is a highlight on an album that also features top guest musicians, including Doug Pettibone. It’s not hard to see why Lucinda Williams has chosen the Brit as the support act for her current tour’.
FOLKWORDS… ’Aside from the indelible richness of voice, alluring melodies and sharply discerning lyrics this album offers tales of life told with terrifying truth – and damn fine it is too’.
LOVE MUSIC LOVE LIFE… ’It’s impossible not to listen to this album all the way through, and the craftsmanship and style is reminiscent of artists such the great Jimmy Webb, Roy Orbison and Neil Diamond. The raw, honest quality to the album is truly an eye (or rather, ear) opener and really is a remarkable piece of work. It would be a sin to not have this incredible musical memoir in your collection’.
MUSIC WEEK… ‘ A refreshingly down-to-earth, beautifully crafted and soulfully uplifting listen, One eye open, one eye closed is most definitely one to have in your collection.
