Jimmy Lee Hannaford is a songwriter and performer whose roots stretch back to his native Mississippi, where he soaked up the sounds of Delta bluesmen as well as R&B, rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, folk, country, funk and soul.
After many years on the Gulf Coast and 10 years as part of the thriving music scene in Austin, Texas, Jimmy Lee moved to Lower Alabama in 2007. Since then, this seasoned talent has performed regularly along the Gulf Coast, showcasing his skills as a soulful singer and storyteller with the deft, easy-rolling sounds of his rhythmic guitar and melodic harmonica.
