Jamie Lidell To Tour In Support of ‘Jim’

Jamie Lidell's second album, Multiply caught people off-guard in 2005. Few expected 
the restless sonic scientist to make an uplifting soul record, but he did; and
audiences and critics were captivated by the fusion of his influences with deeply
felt song writing, meticulous production skills, and most of all, that flipping
amazing voice. And now here he comes again. Jim is ten very different songs. Jim is
energy, integrity, emotion. Jim is all about the hooks. Jim is getting the sounds
absolutely right. Jim is keeping things fresh. Jim is the voice. Jim is Jamie and
Jamie is Jim.

Recorded in Berlin, Los Angeles and Paris, Jim takes even further what was started
with Multiply, finding the balance between the spontaneous creativity of his raw
ideas and the careful craft and polish of a great record. The musical world of Jim
is richer and more refined; but it always comes back to the voice. As Jamie says,
"The most important thing was the vocal, to capture the balance of me delivering the
songs with full gusto, and at the same time retaining the grain and the grit." Jim
will switch you on in the morning, move you on the dance-floor and take you down in
the small hours.

Jamie will be heading out on a fifteen-date North American tour in support of Jim,
including a stop at the Sasquatch! Festival in Seattle. He'll have a full band with
him - guitars, saxophones, keys, drums - plus Jamie's previous set-up as the
starting point for some new sonic experimentations involving the band as well. His
live show has become an infamously exhilarating experience, with Jamie performing on
the edges of control and chaos, turning music inside out.
