‘Man that guy can sing!’
Back at The Meeting Room Elland after a sell-our performance in 2016! Stevie Nimmo was born and raised in Glasgow and has been successfully recording and touring for the last two decades. A major operation in 2009 resulting in the loss of his voice for over 2 months forced Stevie, now living in France, to ease back on his touring schedule with The Nimmo Brothers. During this period, he wrote the songs that made up his first solo album, released in 2010, entitled ‘The Wynds of Life’.
For Stevie, song writing isn’t something that you plan, it’s something that he needs to do. “When you have that something inside you, that feeling be it happy or sad, you just have to let it out. It’s an extremely emotional process and my only way to do that is through song,” says Stevie.
The Wynds of Life was recorded at The Zone studios outside Austin, Texas with an A-list of Austin’s finest musicians. Michael Ramos – Keys, George Reiff – Bass, Lloyd Maines – Steel Guitars, Pat Manske – Drums, and as a special guest guitarist David Lee Holt from Storyville. George, Lloyd and Pat are also featured on the current Courtyard Hounds release.
Fleshed out with pedal steel, banjo, accordion, B3 and Wurlitzer, amongst other instruments, The Wynds of Life falls just as easily under the Americana banner with its roots, country and gospel influences as it does in Stevie’s more familiar blues setting.
