The Innocent

Details 

All full length CD's are only 4.95.

The Innocent. Songwriting influenced by early 20th century American music. Jim's deep craggy voice features: a hypnotic mix of old-time crooner, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits and phrasing that at times evokes Leonard Cohen.

The Innocent Playlist

"Congratulations Jim on a wonderful album The Innocent - having a wee listen now and am very touched by your sincerity throughout the album, Loving all the songs but really like Sand in our Shoes (loving your guitar playing too Jim) The more I play it, the more I'm enjoying it Jim, well done again for this musical masterpiece." Bernie Devlin

The Bluesbunny gives The Innocent four carrots "The Innocent is his best album to date...."

"A huge thank you to Mr Jim Byrne, recieved the album yesterday....Its superb beyond words!!!!!!! Alan Grant

"And after just 2 plays, a highly recommended album it is too." Mike Morrison of www.americanrootsuk.com

"Congratulations on your wonderful new album, Jim. Some lovely, chilled out ambient sounds on it, it contains your best songs yet." Ciaran Dorris Celtic Music Radio

Your cd is brilliant! sounds really great your voice is amazing ! People will love this album:) Steven Leonard

"I love 'Sand in our Shoes'... it's beautiful..." Linda Harnett

"Just listened to the new album, sounds fantastic. Deffo your best" Robert Ruthven of the Creeping Charlies

"Congradulations on the new CD Jim!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely amazing! "Helen St Helen

"I can thoroughly recommend this fabulous album - it's real chill-out music that gets right under your skin! Love it!! " Jane Fairnie

"Now and again though, an amazing new album from a guitar-based band will cross my radar, and I'm hooked. You will be too. Think of the gentler moments of Tom Waits crossed with Johnny Cash or Bob Dylan and you'll get a rough idea of his sound." Blair Millen in The Letter

I can't get them out of my head. I think the whole CD is terrific - such a range of vocal and instrumental talent. The vocal backing is subtle and gentle, and the lyrics smooth and clean. I love the sharpness of the 'knife' on track 2! You've got a great voice, Jim and such a range, smooth yet at times gravelly! The variety of instruments is amazing, and I really go for Peter Byrne's whistling on track 10! Moira Laws

"Love your new album Jim - I thought is your sound 'Laid back soul blues'" Pauline Keightley Music Photography and Reviews

"I'm absolutely loving this, Jim - (Sweeter than a Rose is a) great song!" Duncan McCrone
