“Jimbo Scott stops the room with his voice and hearts with his words. I love every chance I get to see him live!” – KC Turner

“Jimbo Scott is the real deal!! His baritone vocals take you to the streets of Greenwich Village, to the hills of Scotland, down South through Memphis and back again to his hometown of Oakland, California. Dave Van Ronk meets Reverend Gary Davis, a modern folk singer with a revolutionary spirit and a heart of gold.” – Josh Brough of Poor Man’s Whiskey 


A favorite in the Bay Area’s esteemed house concert scene and folk venues, Jimbo Scott has honed his skills in the last 2 years as a member of the famed Bay Area bluegrass jam band Poor Man’s Whiskey.  His performances with the band at The Kate Wolf Music Festival and the Great American Music Hall, among countless other events, helped to draw attention to his solo work.  With Poor Man’s Whiskey announcing a hiatus at the end of 2019, Jimbo aims to seize on the momentum of the last two years and invite the loyal PMW fanbase as well as folk and americana fans far and wide to enjoy his own musical contributions.

Long Roads, love for one and all, and aspirational calls to the greater good we can achieve but have not yet radiate through classic records by Woody Guthrie, to Paul Simon to John Moreland.  Combining the influences of Jimbo’s birthplace of Memphis, TN and his life-long home in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jimbo’s newest album, Where the Heart Is evokes traditions of Tennessee country and bluegrass, Oakland soul and sepia toned California landscapes and life-scapes.  Like a spinning mirror, Jimbo’s new collection of songs casts reflections around the room, flashing from honest self-deprecation to cinematic retrospectives on our part in shaping our communities and accounting the consequences of our actions and inactions.

    Thank you so much,
