With clever song structures, crisp vocal harmonies and a healthy dose of twang, the Jimmyriggers deliver a potent mix of sounds that appeals to rock and roots fans alike.
Built around the songwriting talents of bass player David Pearce, guitarist Andre Kirchhoff, and the colour of maverick guitar slinger Kevin Moquin, the Montreal-based alt-country band counterpoint their full electric sound and powerful rhythms with strong melodic song structures. It is their trademark harmonies, however, that truly lend the band its unique sound, with Pearce’s clenched fist-in-velvet glove vulnerability dovetailing with Kirchhoff’s more honey-dipped tones.
