HighMay / Bio

HighMay was conceived in early 2010, as the latest musical brainchild of singer-songwriter, Jimmy Atto. He has been touring and writing songs since 2002, when he released his first full-length album, Time Is Right.

Now 10 years later - with 2 previous LPs under his belt, plus an EP in 2010 - Jimmy has solidified the HighMay name with a live band, and brand new full-length album: “The Upside” – released January 3rd, 2012.

This album includes 12 tracks of all-new material, and a wildly talented cast of twenty (20) musicians/producers in the studio. New to the mix for the live band are Stephan K (utilities) and Julian Fraser (drums).

Since HighMay’s inception, Jimmy has toured with this project as a solo act, and for the first time ever as a full ensemble (Fall 2011 and beyond). HighMay is currently in booking performances for 2012. The band will also be focusing their performance efforts toward regional and light national shows - staying in Michigan - more specifically the Detroit area - where they all grew up.

The band deems their own music “Eclectic Rock,” with influences including: Ryan Adams, My Morning Jacket, Elliott Smith, Kings of Leon, Jack Johnson, Citizen Cope, The Who, Gogol Bordello, and David Gray, among others.
