Jimmy Bowskill

Child Prodigy of Blues

*** Unsung Heroes of the Blues ***

Inspired by the late, great Robert Johnson, Jimmy taught himself to play and sing by interpreting by sight and sound in his own natural style. At the tender age of 11, Jimmy was invited to join Jeff Healey onstage, alongside his now mentors and bandmates, Jerome Godboo and Alec Fraser. With the addition of drummer Bob Vespaziani, the Jimmy Bowskill band was completed.

Since being discovered in Southern Ontario a whirlwind of activity has been bestowed on Jimmy. Major festivals, radio and television appearances including national coverage on CTV's Open Mike with Mike Bullard have all featured his rise in popularity and blues stardom. Jimmy has been broadening his musical boundaries to Quebec, where he received much media exposure.

Jimmy is not your typical kid for onstage he is nattily attired as an old blues artist and the image fits him so comfortably. His savvy style commands your attention but his genuine true self engulfs you as he makes friends with his audience. He has confidence and stage presence way beyone his tender years and it seems an old bluesman's lifetime of performing skills in his bag of tools.

True to the timeless Delta Bluesmen of the past there is a deliberate low-tech aspect of Jimmy's sound. His inner voice must be of an old-field song on a dusty, scratched 78 recording. You wonder while under his spell where someone so young can feel the blues so deep. His soul is not mimicking as he reels back, squints and grimaces as his voice covers the dynamic range of a blues holler back to a gentle vibrato whisper all so effortlessly.

The boy has a genuine "mojo soul" going on deep inside that is just begging to come out. Jimmy is a very advanced and relaxed traditional acoustic blues guitar player. He has had stellar teachers along the way including professionals such as Rick Fines and Juno award winner Jack deKeyzer. Not a stranger to other instruments, Jimmy also plays harmonica, penny whistle and has even tackled a Hammond B3 organ while on stage. Jimmy Bowskills future is bright with intense shades of blue.
