JIM DIAMOND / Bio

International blues recording artist. Played over 2,000 shows, playing in Canada, Switzerland, Italy, England, Wales, and the United States.

4 CD's released: ANGEL CHILD, SOMEWHERE SOMEHOW, SHUT UP AND PLAY, LIVE ALIVE.

We are an original act performing 95% original material. Our motto is; "Where blues is Swingin', Rockin', Jazzy, and always original!" The key to our success is our diversity in the blues. You never know what's next.

KP of Rock N Read Magazine (Nashville, TN) writes, " They are not your typical blues band . . . like, where you see three or four tunes and you've seen their entire show. With these cats at every turn there is a different theme or style, or a different featured player, that keeps the audience wanting more. They are one of the most engaging, entertaining blues acts on the planet!"

Our second project features Reese Wynans (former SRV keyboard player), on piano and organ.. We have played many, many festivals and clubs around the world.
