Hello and goodbye

It's Been A While
Rock And Roll God

"Who says you can't judge a book by its cover? Basic Black is not only the title of Jimmy Ohio's first EP, but a fitting description of the raw, bluesy, and timeless rock 'n' roll found therein. Last year, the Brooklynite flew back to his one-time home of Detroit and holed up in a former Baptist church for four days with some old pals. The four songs that emerged each paint heartbreak with a slightly different brush, and offer tastes of what might have come of a longer recording session. From the bristling energy of "Hello and Goodbye" to the delicate reflection of "Quiet Sound" — each track leaves you wanting more."

"100% rock'n'roll, timeless, Jimmy Ohio's music can be played and replayed over and over, you'll ever find a new colour, a new path that will deeply invite you each and everytime for a brand new and singular "voyage", a taste of eternity." Vanina Hänin
