Includes performances in Sackville and Fredericton.
Shotgun Jimmy has a new album and an upcoming tour that includes an eight day residency at Sackville’s Thunder & Lightning and a performance in Fredericton at Wilser’s Room.
Field of Trampolines (You’ve Changed Records) is a perfect summer album, recorded at the Eastern end of a cross-Canada tour in August 2015. Shotgun Jimmie and his band (Winnipeg’s wonderful Human Music) slept under the stars, played rock shows, and swam every possible lake. Crowds were surfed. They ate from orchards and cooked by campfire.
The record was produced by Joel Plaskett in his Dartmouth, NS studio, New Scotland Yard. Joel is a magician, a musician, and a legend. They worked quickly, recording live and mixing fast in a single four-day session. Joel captured the summer vibes like a glow bug in his bare hands.
Field of Trampolines joins an impressive discography: five full-length albums since 2007 (including the Polaris Prize-nominated Transistor Sister), and split releases with Joel Plaskett, Ladyhawk, and Attack In Black. In 2012, Jimmie appeared on John K. Samson’s Provincial (Epitaph/ANTI) and toured across North America and Europe as Samson’s lead guitarist and opening act.
