"Who says you can't judge a book by its cover? Basic Black is not only the title of Jimmy Ohio's first EP, but a fitting description of the raw, bluesy, and timeless rock 'n' roll found therein. Last year, the Brooklynite flew back to his one-time home of Detroit and holed up in a former Baptist church for four days with some old pals. The four songs that emerged each paint heartbreak with a slightly different brush, and offer tastes of what might have come of a longer recording session. From the bristling energy of "Hello and Goodbye" to the delicate reflection of "Quiet Sound" — each track leaves you wanting more."

"100% rock'n'roll, timeless, Jimmy Ohio's music can be played and replayed over and over, you'll ever find a new colour, a new path that will deeply invite you each and everytime for a brand new and singular "voyage", a taste of eternity." Vanina Hänin

About the artist

Basic Black was written and recorded in 2008 at a small Baptist church, deep in the heart of Detroit. A year after moving to Brooklyn, Jimmy Ohio flew back to the Motor City for a long weekend session with some old friends. The amazing acoustics of the church, combined with the endless supply of beer, created an inspired vibe that lasted four days. The EP was recorded in almost total seclusion at The First Church of the Holy Revelation of Rock and Roll.

Jimmy Ohio, formerly of The Ultimate Lovers and Misty, moved to Brooklyn in 2007 after spending eight years in Detroit.
