Following the single Desert Song, Jimmy’s debut album, One eye open, one eye closed, has just been released (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 ….
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.
