About the Artist

Jimmy Long grew up in the Southern California’s high desert. His childhood was filled with classic rock and Americana at home, and the choruses of the church choir on Sunday morning. Coming from a blue-collar family with nine mouths to feed, there was no budget for luxuries; so although Long’s desire to play the guitar started at an early age, he had to wait until he could buy one on his own. He began writing songs almost immediately: songs full of equal parts life experience and imagination. As an independent artist, he is grateful for the opportunity to share his music. The release of this album represents the fulfillment a lifelong dream
