This is Jimm’s first new release in like, eight years and as he recently pointed out, his second all-new GMR release (the last was 1987’s Alone by The Life). As you can hear – Sunlight Reaches is a delightful pop/rock confection, with a palate full of flavors ranging from the slightly macabre to the wistful and the culinarish. Jimm started the album off as a successful Kickstarter project over a year ago, as long-time devotees of his music, we at GMR were happy to pick up the project and take it to the next level – conquering the whole damn world.

Besides great tunes, we’ve got videos for the album! First, the super-fun Witchcraft that we are releasing today. youtu.be/a87c-pGHkyA
No children were killed or otherwise harmed in the making of this video, though one was a trifle grumpy. We also have a tell-all Jimm get’s interviewed about the album which you can watch right this minute. It is most insightful. www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJcPysjQFGs



released June 16, 2015

Many of these songs were written at The Holiday Music Motel in Sturgeon Bay, WI, home of Steel Bridge Songfest, Dark Songs, and Love on Holiday. My participation in these collaborative songwriting events has not only made me a better writer, it has also given me the gift of a whole new community of kind and talented people that I now call family. Long live The Michigan Street Steel Bridge, and the memory of our brothers Chris Aaron and Billy Triplett!
