Jimmy the Dog / Bio

Based in London, England, Jimmy The Dog is the 'Americana' band project for songwriter Jim Ferrie. After the release of the eponymous album on iTunes during 2013 (on which Jim played everything - except the female vocals, naturally) it was decided that the second album, "New Tricks" - due for release later in 2014, was going to be more uptempo and bluesy and with contributions from other musos and vocalists. Securing some festival appearances during the summer of 2014 lead to an 'international electric' touring band with Jim on vocals and guitar and the following excellent players; Dave Ferguson is a producer and professional bass player from New Zealand and plays with the London modern rock 3-piece Black Orchid Empire, who recently toured Germany supporting Skunk Anansie. He's also been in the orchestra pit on bass for the stage production of 'Les Miserables'; Stu Young is a throbbing Canadian drummer and percussionist, formerly with 3 Buck Shirt; Neil Packman, from Reading, England is a mean harpist and slide guitarist and plays regularly with the Reading-based band Blues Cruise; Kimmie, from Northern Ireland, is best known as a radio presenter with BBC Radio Ulster and sings a mean blues too.

Songwriter/Producer Jim Ferrie was assistant producer to Ivor Novello Award winner Mike Myers (The Nolans, Billy Ocean, The Prodigy) at Tinman Creative Studios in Portugal and has solo projects with TV/Film libraries and major cable TV networks in the USA.
