Jimmi and the Band of Souls have a reputation for enthusiastic, high-energy live shows. Listen for yourself with their newest CD, “Live From The Park Theater”. The music is taken from their show on October 3, 2013 at the Park Theater in Hayward, Wisconsin. The band plays original songs from their studio albums and also crowd favorites like “Feelin’ Alright” and “Hoochie Coochie Man”. If you’ve ever wished you could have the band playing live for you in your home, you just got your wish. Ken Tritz, who reviews albums and live shows for Blue Monday Monthly writes, “I know when I need to be feelin’ alright, this will be one of the first cd’s I dig out, because these liberators of souls are masters at unlocking the happiness in every heart by laying down the funk and junk with their own blues kinship. And I’m pretty sure most fans will do as the liner notes suggest, play loudly and frequently.”

“Cover Me” features 12 songs covering blues artists like Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Memphis Minnie and Sonny Boy Williamson, as well as classic rock artists like Bob Dylan and the Beatles. Jimmi says, “The idea was to do a cover album by first deeply understanding the emotions within the lyrics. From there we rearranged the music so we could really tell the story with passion and energy. I’m really excited by the groove we laid down and the moods we captured.”

The album title is a pun on the idea of covering other people’s songs, but it also has a deeper meaning. As Jimmi says, “It’s about taking care of each other. It’s about friendship, companionship and community. It’s about helping someone celebrate the good times and being with them through the bad times. I think people are hungry for that — for real relationships, for real love.”

The digipak features the artwork of four talented artists. Awen Briem, a local tattoo artist, drew the cover illustration (it’s actually Jimmi’s tattoo). Find her at http://www.artwithapoint.com. Judy Langemo Roth painted it in watercolors. She can be found at https://www.facebook.com/JudyRothArt. Lonny Unitus created the inside illustration. His website is http://www.lonnyunitus.com. Dreya Layman did the photography and layout. She can be found at https://www.facebook.com/fuzzypantsstudio.

Jimmi continues, “The artwork reflects the theme of the album. For instance, the two figures on the front cover support each other, care for each other, enjoy each other. They both take responsibility for the relationship. That’s what it’s about.

The Devil You Know was voted best self-produced blues album in Minnesota in 2011 and reached the top 30 for best self-produced blues album in the nation! The album features ten new originals from Jimmi. Like The Temple, the music draws from from a wide variety of American music, but the blues influence is on every song, from the heavy mood of “I’m Losing You”, to the New Orleans-tinged blues of “Pretty Sugar Mama” to the Allman Brothers influenced “The Farthest Shore”. The wide variety of instruments is apparent too. A tenor guitar is featured on “Don’t Break My Heart”, an electric sitar is on “The Devil You Know” and lap steel is featured on “Bent Willie”.

The Temple was recorded and released just before Jimmi and the Band of Souls formed as a band. You can hear the influences of Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Tom Petty on songs like “The Temple”, “Blood On The Snow” and “Hey Baby Won’t You Be My Friend?” Jimmi’s passion for blues shows up in the boogie-woogie gospel song “Satan’s Complaint”, the R&B infused “Sweet Jesus Blues” and “Lord I Tremble” and the dark, moodiness of “I Sing This Song In A Whisper.” The album closes with a country-gospel arrangement of “Amazing Grace” which features slide guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Many of these songs are fan favorites of the band’s live shows. Pick this album up to hear the original studio recording.

Jimmi’s first album was on Mike and Linda Coates’ Barking Dog label. Jimmi will always be grateful for the opportunity Mike and Linda provided him. Songs like “Virginia”, “Boogie Woogie Woman” and “Clara Dawson” continue to be crowd favorites at gigs.
