“Jimmy is an exceptional guitarist and musician. Having played alongside of him the past 15+ years, in multiple projects spanning multiple genres, I can honestly say his versatility is unmatched. When writing and producing music with Jimmy, his ear for hearing what a particular song needs was always a vital part of the process for any music we wrote together and I know his talent will always be a cornerstone in any future musical projects he is involved in.”
