“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
Have you ever been walking down the street, and suddenly heard a voice that made you walk into a venue to see whose it was? That is Jimbo Scott’s voice – a bell, magnetic and the definition of a powerhouse. A favorite of the Bay Area’s folk and Americana scene, Jimbo Scott has been entertaining audiences far and wide for more than a decade, including 2 years as a member of the famed NorCal Jamgrass band, Poor Man’s Whiskey. His solo work evokes traditions of Tennessee country and bluegrass, Oakland soul in sepia toned California landscapes and life-scapes.
Described by Tahoe Weekly as “Honest Honey-Eyed Americana”, Jimbo’s music 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. His signature baritone voice has moved many an audience including The Kate Wolf Music Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and the Fillmore. With Poor Man’s Whiskey announcing a hiatus at the end of 2019, Jimbo has seized on the momentum of his time with the band and invites music fans far and wide to enjoy his own contributions.
