World-traveler, collaborator, underdog and hard-working man, Shotgun Jimmie stakes his claim for the hearts and minds of millions with his critically-acclaimed release Everything, Everything (You’ve Changed Records). In 2012, he appeared on John K. Samson’s release Provincial (Epitaph/ANTI) and toured across North America and Europe as Samson’s lead guitarist and opening act. Jimmie’s one-man-band has been an audience favourite at numerous festivals including Slovakia’s Pohoda, Pop Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion, Sappyfest, Sled Island, Regina Folk Festival, Dawson City Music Festival, NXNE and Canadian Music Week. In addition to a nearly non-stop touring schedule, he has released four albums since 2007, received a Polaris Prize long-list nomination, and shared split releases with Joel Plaskett, Ladyhawk, and Attack in Black. His back-up band is a revolving cast of Canada’s best; musicians who have also played with Feist, DoMakeSayThink, Constantines, Ladyhawk, City and Colour and Cannon Bros.
Grab the nearest Replacements record. Got it? Rad. Jam it into a blender, forget to put the lid on, because this is your world and you don't give a shit about any mess you make, and hit "frappe." Cackle maniacally at the disaster. Congratulations, you're now a fan of slow learners.
I don't know anything about this band but Darcy said they were perfect for the show and I trust in Darcy.
