I'm not generally a huge blues guy. And I'm definitely not a country guy. But there's something about putting these two genres together that speaks to me. Country-tinged blues is a strange beast, perhaps even a paradoxical one, but when it hits, it hits with an emotional urgency that is almost unmatched by most other genres of music. And you may not know him yet, but Timothy Jaromir
is a country blues artist you need to know.
We're premiering the video for his track, "Jump & Scream," today and the video tells the story of a dangerous woman who's kidnapped Jaromir himself and takes him back to her den. But the memorable video is always in service of the Southern-fried guitar licks and the blues authenticity seeping out of every pore of the track.
