Jimmy Holland

Post by leeburgess on Fri 27 May 2011, 1:09 am

Right, you're gonna see a lot of this guy through me in the coming months, but personally, I think he's nothing short of amazing and one of the best solo acoustic acts around.

He's playing the acoustic stage at Slam Dunk this weekend if you're heading to either date, I'd urge you to try see him.

Here's some of his songs: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jimmy-Holland/191885860837814?v=app_178091127385
They are so infectious and catchy that if you don't like them, you clearly have no soul.

To Hell With The World is one of his oldest songs, that's a re-recording and it's just superb.

I've just finished some more songs of his, that might hit the interweb soon.
But here's a live in session video of a song I've recorded properly.



Lemme know what you think. I already know Fratson and Captain Chambz are fans.

Nee both, didn't want to pest you for too long as you seemed pretty busy. Actually, you seemed pretty busy all day - I think you came and stood about six feet away from us during Antiflag, but didn't want to interrupt there cause you were having some pretty in depth chat with a kid in glasses!

On topic, wor Phil took a nice photo of Jimmy last night as seen here on his Flickr.
