Award-Winning Blues/Rock/Reggae Artist/Musician Jimy Graham musical journey has brought him full circle. As a boy growing up in New York, he was heavily influenced by the Motown sound and Carribean beats, and by age 8 he picked up a guitar and started to undergo his experience... As a teenager, his daily practice was overheard by a neighborhood musician that was working with Wilson Pickett and he encouraged Graham to audition for Pickett's band. That audition resulted in his first professional job, occupying the same space in Pickett's band filled earlier by venerated guitar God Jimi Hendrix. Another parallel with the life of Hendrix occurred years later, when Graham portrayed him in the production of "Morrison: A Rock Opera" at the Hollywood Palace. On the west coast, Graham performed and recorded with Los Angeles Based reggae band Babylon Warriors and opened for UB40 with Reggae Superstar Pablo Moses. After an extensive tour to Zimbabwe Africa With Reggae Superstar Don Carlos From The Legendary Black Uhuru, Graham returned to New York, where he was in demand for studio sessions with Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown, Grace Jones and Sly and Robbie. His live performances include an impressive array of artists from every genre imaginable including Chuck Berry, Janet Jackson, and Maxi Priest. While in Asia, his spectacular performances at the world famous Japan's Budokan with Japan pop icons TRF garnered critical acclaim. His infectious blues/rock/reggae style packed houses during his artist residences at Shanghai's Piccone Club, Hong Kong's Rock school, The Roomful of Blues in Singapore and both The Hard Rock Cafe and The Roadhouse in Macau, China. Throughout his stay in Japan, Graham taught at The Tokyo School of Music and ESP Guitar Music Institute. Inevitably his homesickness for his native Jamaica set in and he returned there to sell out nights at Kingston's trendy Red Bones Blues Cafe. While working on projects for Kingston based artists like Jack Radics with gold record (Jimmy Cliff) producer, Paul Henton, word got around to the producers of Jamaica's Jazz and Blues Festival. Graham was invited to perform on the main stage at the 15th Anniversary of the festival in 2011. His performance electrified the crowd with a set that included a medley of the National Anthem of Jamaica with the Star Spangled Banner played with his teeth. Currently he signed an Artist Management Agreement with Robert Speed Productions™ Contact: Robert Speed Productions™ for further Information, Press or Booking Inquiries.
