Expanding beyond the blues, Jimi Beavis has delved into the depths of soul, gospel, country and rock n roll in his highly anticipated second album Post-Apocalyptic Love Songs - to be released on June 10.
Jimi has been writing songs for more than half his life after becoming obsessed with music of all sorts in his teens. Now an experienced performer and songwriter he is about to release his second album Post-Apocalyptic Love Songs. It is full of the same energy of his passionate, sweaty live performances and punctuated by the superlative musicianship of his groove-laden, horn-driven band and his own harmonica-blowing mastery.
The new album is not content with the usual women and drinking tropes that consisted of his debut Gentleman Giant (2013). Jimi has jammed probing fingers into more eccentric areas of narratives in song that accompany the American-Australian Gothic and the possible apocalypse - anti-heroes that kill and cheat, strangers who love, deathbed requests for cannibalism, jolly odes to dying and persecuted refugees, the facade that hides the lonely famous and our mortality.
