Jimmy Gnecco
Jimmy Gnecco is the lead singer of Ours.  Ours has released three solo albums to date: Mercy (Dancing for the Death of an Imaginary Enemy (2008), Precious (2002) and Distorded Lullabies (2001).   Jimmy has been working on his solo album in order to share some of the music material he had been writing for years but that he felt wasn’t suitable for the Ours sound and which as a result never made it to previous records.   Vocally, Jimmy is a very charismatic and passionate singer.  The contrast of his falsetto tone, captivating singing and his signature screaming voice is reminiscent of Jeff Buckley’s.  During his Toronto show last May, Jimmy also 
explained between two songs that the Buckley comparisons had forced him to purposely discard some of his work in the past to avoid
 similar references.  Some of these songs are now seeing the light of day on The Heart.  His solo effort The Heart adds a very
personal view on matters that are close to his heart such as the passing of his mother, personal growth and coming to terms with certain
 relationships.    The Heart will be released on July 20th, 2010.  In this interview Jimmy give us an insight on his writing and the up
coming tour.  Visit www.jimmygnecco.com for more info.
