Harnessing a soulful voice that soothes and comforts, South Australian singer-songwriter Jimmy Marin blends captivating melodies with hypnotic rhythms and funky blues guitar to create a sound all of his own: Acoustic Soul.
Diverse and universal, Marin’s sound is influenced by the Americana sound but is equally at home in an Aussie pub as it would be in a Mississippi juke joint. His lyrics are introspective and observant with a message focusing on life, love & the world in which we live. Marin’s unique sound owes as much to rhythm ‘n’ blues and funk as it does to acoustic folk and blues.
Marin – inspired by the likes of Dave Grohl, Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz and Prince – has used his experience to write, record and produce his debut album Something True all on his own, so as to perfectly capture the sounds that have been swimming in his mind for the past 5 years.
