Shotgun Jimmie to release solo album ‘The Onlys’ October 9

By Administrator

Former Shotgun & Jaybird front man, Shotgun Jimmie, is releasing his highly anticipated solo album ‘The Onlys’ (Delorean Recordings) on Tuesday, October 9. In support of the release, Jimmie will embark on an Eastern Canadian tour this October with Baby Eagle and Construction Destruction.

East Coast gigs are:

13 Sep 20:00 The North Street Church W/ Old Man Luedecke + The Got To Get Got Halifax, Nova Scotia
11 Oct 20:00 The Capitol W/ Baby Eagle + Construction & Destruction Fredericton, New Brunswick
12 Oct 20:00 Sackville music hall w/ baby eagle and construction and destruction sackville, New Brunswick
13 Oct 20:00 BaBa’s Lounge W/ Baby Eagle + Construction & Destruction Ch’town, Prince Edward
18 Oct 20:00 POP EXPLOSION Gingers Tavern w/Baby Eagle & Construction+Destruction Halifax, Nova Scotia

With the careful first steps of “Duet” Shotgun Jimmie’s sophomore solo effort, The Onlys, lurches to life with hushed tones and echoing drums.

Throughout the rest of the album’s thirteen songs, melodies build and fall into the arms of warm guitars and organic rhythms. Hearts break and distance grows until all that is left is a quiet hum from a farmhouse at the end of a dirt road.

A founding member of perennial underdogs Shotgun & Jaybird, Jimmie has spent the last four years co-fronting the band from Dawson City to the greener pastures of Sackville, NB. After signing to the legendary Sappy Records in 2006, the group quickly developed a devout national following with the successive releases of their EP There Are Days and There Are Days and LP Trying To Get Somewhere.

Now bravely standing on his own for the first time since 2004’s The 6,000 True Stories of Love, Shotgun Jimmie presents the glowing results of a summer spent in seclusion, writing and recording in the parlor of Marshwinds Farm. From the clamoring guitar attack of “Sparkelution” to wilting final notes of “Warbler Song,” The Onlys instills a mixture equal parts early 90’s indie-rock and late 60’s Americana.
