Toronto, Ontario based folk artist; Jimmy Pearson released his debut EP, “Good Friends” at the beginning of the month, featuring five tracks.
The opening track, “One By One” has a slight country sound that I quite enjoyed, and I couldn’t help but sing along to this track. It’s got a great beat, and lyrics that just seem to slide off of the tongue easily. As the EP plays on, “Bruised” the second track won me over, which is one of the slower of the EP but still has a beat that makes your feet want to tap.
“Raspberry Wine” is another that stood out to me, it’s a lot shorter track but is full of energy and I was singing along quickly, and as with the rest of the tracks, it made me want to get up and move.
Jimmy has a talent for songwriting, as well as performing those songs. It’s this type of album that always gets me, as it shows the talent behind the artist when they can write songs that appeal to many genres, and this is the case for “Good Friends”.
