Shotgun Jimmie

Unofficial mascot of the indie-rock ethos is the Sudbury-beloved Shotgun Jimmie. Jimmie is a one-man-indie-rock-band known for his charming wit, and playful spirit. Behold the power and simple beauty of the rock song!

His latest release, Field Of Trampolines, joins an impressive discography: 5 full length albums since 2007 (including the Polaris Prize nominated Transistor Sister), and split releases with Joel Plaskett, Ladyhawk, and Attack in Black. In 2012, Jimmie appeared on John K. Samson’s Provincial (Epitaph/ANTI) and toured across North America and Europe as Samson’s lead guitarist and opening act. Performing with unstoppable charm, hooks, and positivity, Jimmie brings his never ending tour to Northern Lights.
