While performing as a solo artist Jimmy began to build his fan base and solidify his name in Northeast Ohio. Releasing both cover songs and originals, Jimmy slowly found his way onto local college radio station playlists which introduced him to a more diverse set of fans.
He credits his love of music to his childhood. At 4 years old he was singing along to records by artists such as Bon Jovi, Gloria Estefan, Janet Jackson, and The Eagles respectively.
"I love all styles of music. There's just something about it that moves your soul. It's not a cheap feeling either. There is something completely honest and vulnerable when you are performing that's hard to duplicate elsewhere."
