He's got a heart as big as Phar Lap's that he pours out every night into a microphone, a guitar and a harp. He's raw, intense, and leaves nothing in reserve when he's on the boards.
His self taught finger-picking style is a furious assault on the long beaten and bloodied bodies of his acoustics, slides, electric and banjo. And his gravely, smoke filled vocals and roaring harmonicas only add insult to their injuries. Backed by either his foot percussion, or his band of many misfits all with talent and chops to spare. He is a unique and original gentleman of the road and a journeyman through and through.
"Bursting with energy from the get go....a refreshingly raw take on Blues & Roots....like Newton Faulkner after too much Red Bull!" - Rave Magazine
"Jimmy howls at the audience like a demented preacher saving a congregation" - The Chronicle
"A little bit left of center, intriguingly different...leaves you wondering what he will come up with next" - The Folk Rag
