Country music won’t tell you you’re pretty, when you’re not. Won’t lie to you to avoid the pain of a broken heart. Won’t take the bottle out of your hand, and tell you that you’ve had enough. The great story telling tradition of Country music, is as brutally truthful as it is comforting.
Jimmy The Saint And The Sinners bring their own truth to this great tradition proudly wearing their hearts and influences on their sleeves.
Formed in 2010 from a mutual love of honest music - from Hank, Willie and Waylon to Ryan Adams and Justin Townes Earle - the Sinners play with a grit and passion rarely seen in the all too oft-imitative world of modern country blues.
The Sinners forge their own sound; a dirge of fiery hard living country and heart wrenching ballads. Fronted by a wailing vocalist who channels Howling Wolf as much as Townes Van Zandt, the Sinner’s sound is augmented with stunning harmony vocals, dual (and dueling) lead guitars and outlaw groove. They are responsible, as one fan puts it “for one of the most sinfully dirty and beautiful sounds I have ever heard.”
Renowned for their raucous live shows where often the distance between audience and band is nonexistent, the band honed their energies into tracking their debut album “The Best Of…” completely live in February of 2011 (due for release 15th July 2011).
With plans to record the follow up this winter, this band of songwriters and story tellers are steeped in the tradition of bringing the people’s music, to the people.
