Long Hot Summer Days (2017)<br />

RECORDINGS<br />

Long Hot Summer Days’ is an album that reflects everything that Byrnes looks for in a<br />

song. As he points out; “Most blues fans are on the lookout for the sound of a tasty blues<br />

guitar, but for me what makes or breaks a song is the singer.” As anyone who’s ever heard<br />

him before can attest, Jim’s always been an exceptional vocalist, but for this album he<br />

wanted to take his performances to another level. Byrnes explains, “All of the singers I’ve<br />

ever loved have known when to hold<br />

back. I’ve finally learned to work with<br />

restraint, and that if you don’t throw it<br />

all out at your audience, you can work<br />

with what you don’t reveal. And, sometimes<br />

what you can suggest without<br />

actually singing it overtly gets pretty<br />

interesting. I think with this record, I’ve<br />

finally learned to sound like myself.”<br />

JIM BYRNES<br />

Jim Byrnes lives and breathes music. For nearly<br />

fifty years he’s crooned, drawled, belted, hollered<br />

and sweet talked more songs into a microphone<br />

than most people ever get to hear in a single lifetime.<br />

His evocative, smoky vocals are found in a<br />

truth that doesn’t come overnight. The sheer joy<br />

you can hear in the music he creates is a reason to<br />

celebrate Jim Byrnes as a living musical treasure.<br />

St. Louis bred, Byrnes moved to Vancouver, BC<br />

in the mid-70s after years of drifting, working odd<br />

jobs and playing music. He’s been a mainstay on<br />

both the music and screen scenes ever since.<br />

With many award winning albums to his credit<br />

(Maple Blues Awards, WCMAs, Junos, Canadian<br />

Folk <strong>Music</strong> Awards), Jim Byrnes is that artist who<br />

will light up the stage with songs and stories, tried<br />

and true.<br />
