Inspired by the late, great Robert Johnson, Jimmy taught himself to play and sing by interpreting by sight and sound but in his own natural style. At the age of 11, Jimmy was invited to join Jeff Healey onstage and has since become an international enigma. He has been selling out theatres, touring internationally and gaining a wide fan base. His music, though heavily blues influenced blurs the genres and captivates a young and new audience. Jimmy also plays harmonica, bass, banjo and piano.
Jimmy has performed at many major festivals worldwide such as The Montreal International Jazz Festival, The Mont Tremblant Blues Festival, France's Blues Sur Seine and Bay Car Festivals, Ukraine's Koktebel Festival, Toronto's Downtown Jazz Festival, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and many more, including representing Canada at the World Exposition in Japan. Jimmy has been spotlighted on many national and regional television programs.
