BIO


Jimi Jamison:

Continuously acclaimed as one of the Top Ten Male Vocalists in the World, Jimi Jamison delivers a strong and powerful performance regardless of the venue. His released song I'm Always Here, which he wrote and performed for the #1 syndicated TV show Baywatch is certain to solidify his standing as one of the premier performers in the music industry today.

From humble beginnings in rural Mississippi to established superstar residing in Memphis, Tennessee, his achievements call to mind the other Memphis Rock and Roll Legend, whom Jimi met as a young boy while Elvis was on one of his famous shopping sprees. Like Elvis, Jimi has never forgotten from whence he came and continues to be dedicated to benefits assisting St. Jude's Childrens Hospital, The Special Olympics, and The ARF Foundation, with Tony LaRussa of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Beginning with the nationally acclaimed band Target in the Seventies, Jimi continued his rise to stardom with Cobra through the early Eighties. In 1983, he joined Survivor as the group was to go on to enjoy 5 singles in the Top Ten, four gold, platinum, and double platinum albums and multiple movie soundtracks. His renditions of Eye of the Tiger from Rocky and Burning Heart from Rocky IV thrill concert audiences to this day. Other fan favorites include High On You, The Search is Over and I Can't Hold Back, all delivered with crisp, clean live band backup for the strong voiced Jamison. The explosive Rock Hard from Jimi's 1991 solo album, When Love Comes Down, also features the unmistakable power of Jamison's voice.

In 2000, Jamison again teamed with other members of Survivor for a reunion. A tour with the bands Styx and REO Speedwagon followed. The reunion also took the band to Germany for a month-long series of concerts. Jamison would later reunite with Survivor for a tour in 2000, and he remained with the band up through the release of their new album in 2006. In 2005, Jamison was featured in the Emmy-nominated Starbucks commercial which was a parody of Survivor's "Eye of The Tiger".

On November 7th 2008 Frontiers Records will release Jimi Jamison's brand new studio album "Crossroads Moment". This is Jimi's first recording since his swan song as lead singer with Survivor on their 2006 release "Reach". Even upon first listen it is apparent that something almost indefinable has changed since that record. The music is more melodic and rocking than ever before harkening back to those magic days of "Vital Signs", "When Seconds Count" and "Too Hot To Sleep"

 In addition to his career as lead vocalist, he has also made six music videos and has made multiple television appearances. He has served on the Grammy Awards Committee and as a member of AFTRA, SAG and NARAS. He has performed back up vocals for recordings by ZZ TOP, Krokus, Jeff Healy Band, and numerous other recording artists. Billy Gibbons refers to Jimi as the fourth member of ZZ Top. He is a founding member of the organization Voices of Classic Rock.  He has been recognized by the Govenors of Tennessee, Ohio and Arkansas for his work on and off the stage and he commands a loyal and dedicated following appearing at each of his concerts.
