John Morgan Kimock Shares Debut Track From New JMMY Project [Watch]

first_imgBeloved drummer John Morgan Kimock recently sat down with us to go in-depth about his newest project, JMMY. A collaboration between Kimock and Alex Luquet, JMMY is unique in its creative direction from the drummer. While Kimock has played with Mike Gordon, K I M O C K, Everyone Orchestra and more, JMMY is his own creation.“I’ve been fussing around with infusing acoustic and electronic music since I was in high school, and wanted to take the jump moving it into a live context. There is an overall “role expansion” for a drummer in this age. A lot of my drummer friends are creating these amazing hybrid kits and triggering walls of sound, melodies, and in some cases make as much sound as a four-piece band,” said Kimock. He adds, “JMMY is a chance to experiment with these types on concepts and bring it into other bands that I play in.”With an EP called Partial due out later this year, Kimock has shared the first track from this exciting new release. Check out the video for “LowLands,” below shot and directed by Jason Gallagher:JMMY has three dates on the books, including a show supporting Congo Sanchez at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY on May 4th, as well as shows at the Arch St. Tavern in Hartford, CT on May 5th and The Funhouse in Kimock’s hometown of Bethlehem, PA on May 6th.
