Love From JD 18/8/20
Today's Video Of The Day is 'Love', the new single from JD Simo's upcoming self-titled solo album due out this Friday 21st August. Frenetic Funk strumming by JD gives way to a passionate vocal delivery as a raucous riff then roars, with Simo tempering buzzing feedback with a hypnotic hook. Indeed, the song certainly contrasts with the record’s recent opening salvo, the Psychedelic soulful ‘One Of Those Days’. Recognised as a formidable guitarist who can channel iconic six stringers such as Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Nolen, while adding a large dash of Blues and Soul, at 34 JD is already a seasoned session musician who has also paid his dues as a frontman, initially as part of the group SIMO and more recently as a solo artist. A number of JD’s contemporaries appear in the video, including Luther Dickinson (The Black Crowes) and Charlie Starr (Blackberry Smoke).
