Jimmy Durkin / Bio

I wrote many poems over many years...learned a few chords on guitar ...and always dreamed of playing a song I put together on a stage. Well...after many years of practice...In 2009 I started doing just that ! A life long fasination with recording lead me to a home studio of sorts, where I have fun adding my own overdubs of guitars , strings , digital drums and whatever comes to mind. Not having any musical training, I play by ear and put melodies to my poems in an attempt at making a song structure. Some work and some don't ! In June of 09 I was asked to be "The Host" of the long standing Open Mic at Luna Star Cafe in North Miami, where I first took the stage after so many years. It has been a wonderful experience to say the least. I have been living my dream , playing around South Florida every chance I get. Click on City Link Magazine to read the full article for "Party On"...it tells the story of "The Flick"...where my dream first took shape. I want to thank Joe Ellis, ( a man who has lived "The Dream " most of his life ! ) Sandie and Annie for getting me out there to sing in public...Jackson Roque, and Jenny Dwyer for their kind words ...keepin me out there.
