As a singer/songwriter, Jimmy Livingstone is one of the UK's hidden gems. On the back of his acclaimed debut album, 'One eye open, one eye closed', he got to tour with Lucinda Williams. Maverick magazine described him as 'a timeless voice that will stop you in your tracks'. His new album, 'Airplane Mode', has just come out, again to great acclaim…
… 'a red hot band… Classic songwriting … snappy tunes … razor sharp words… an Americana Crooner? A commercial Nick Cave? Scott Walker with a Bigsby on his Telecaster? He rocks when he wants to; but more likely he will break your heart when you are least expecting it. Grown up music for grown ups like me and you'. (NoDepression.com)
Check it out online. Once you've heard it, you will definitely want to hear him play live. And when he's not singing, he's got some good stories up his sleeve that , like his songs, seem to flow from a rich and chaotic life lived to the full. His new trio includes much-in-demand drummer, Evan Jenkins, who has recently played with Tom Jones, Van Morrison and the Neil Cowley Trio to name but a few so come prepared to tap your toes.
Airplane Mode is out now on itunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp etc.
