YOUNG JIMMY has a unique & authentic style dubbed HOOD ROCK: putting the evolutionary sub-genre on the music map.
Following the recent release of 'Pull Up To the Party' DELUXE (as seen in CLASH & Wordplay Magazine), alternative artist - YOUNG JIMMY - is slated to release the second body of work in his discography of genre-defying sound. 'Sweet Maria' will be available to stream 17th February 2023, and excited audiences await the upcoming 'DELUXE' album that will be reaching anticipated listeners this year.
There is a lot of truth in the lyrics, it's meant to be a modern rock love song... I decided to add a solo at the end and played how I felt.
Initially playful lyrics and guitar composition, 'Sweet Maria' blossomed in its recording stages. Adding a drummer and bassist, Young Jimmy looks back at his own experiences as motivation for the track. Recalling two Hispanic ex-girlfriends (Mexican & Dominican) and his experiences of falling in and out of love, Maria symbolises a lot of truth explored in the lyrics, opening up a melodic vulnerable side to the riff-heavy artist.
