It must be humble, sincere, crunchy and organic if it’s a song by Toronto Based Folk/Rock artist Jimmy Pearson. As a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Jimmy strives to connect to thoughtful audiences with songs that embrace the pathetic and awkward facets of life.
Jimmy Pearson is a bona fide artist who crosses over several genres to reach the end goal – a connection with listeners – through expressive vocals, literary and thoughtful lyrics and a sound that is up-front and personal – in other words, Jimmy is real – Indie Spoonful
Watching Jimmy play is kind of like watching open heart surgery; it’s personal, complex, he keeps the rhythm going no matter what, and you can’t look away. With his voice, carefully crafted songs, guitar, and two kick pedals under his feet he left the audience with the feeling that there’s more going on than meets the eye. – Summerfolk Music and Crafts Festival
Jimmy has a talent for songwriting, as well as performing those songs. It’s this type of album that always gets me, as it shows the talent behind the artist when they can write songs that appeal to many genres, and this is the case for “Good Friends”. – Canadian Beats
The love of acoustic fingerstyle guitar brought Don Ablett and Brent Cooper together some years ago. With common influences such as Bruce Cockburn, John Fahey, and Stefan Grossman, they have developed a style that has thrilled fans young and old around Southern Ontario. Both have a strong history of performance, Brent through his former years touring with the rock band, Mankind, and Don through many years of coffee houses and festivals.
Two of the most outstanding features noted by audiences are Brent and Don’s vocal harmonies and the complex and spectacular fingerstyle interplay between the two guitars. They provide audiences of all ages with memorable instrumentals and songs with thought provoking lyrics. Some recent quotes clearly attest to their success:
“Your superb fingerstyle guitar and vocal harmonies are indeed a listening delight. The audience clearly enjoyed every piece you played and sang”.
Becky Ryder, Museums of Mississauga
“Don and Brent have a wonderful sound and the songs stay with you. I find myself singing them around the house and in the car.
Red Rover is destined to become a Canadian classic. The instrumental pieces are moving and evocative”.
Don and Brent are not satisfied to keep their music local. They love playing for audiences large and small. With encouragement from virtually every quarter, their plans include more radio play, magazine coverage and travel around the province.
