Jimmy Gnecco Interview
Jimmy Gnecco who also is the band Ours released the great album The Heart last year which is a cracker of an album. I first heard about him due to a friend sending me his album and I was hooked. Really good songs and worthy of being in your cd collection. I wanted to know a little bit more so I did.
1. Are you happy how people have received the heart?
I am. It seems like people who like my music are really loving the record.
2. How was the recording process different to be in a band when recording an album?
The Heart, I played everything, so if I had an idea I just went and did
it. This was a lot of fun for me. Lots of first takes for me on this
record as well.
3. What was the inspiration for the album?
All sorts of things. LIfe, death, unanswered questions, resolve, and mainly love.
4. How are things different now with the music since you started playing solo?
I purposely chose songs that I didn’t hear myself doing for Ours. These
songs for the most part are probably more straight ahead and simple,
but oddly enough I finally felt like a songwriter on this record.
5. What inspires you when writing your songs?
6. How the internet & social media played a part in getting your music out there?
I guess for me it’s a way to keep people informed on what’s happening. I
don’t really spend anytime on them though because I’m busy making
music. I believe that is the job of management and a record label, not
the songwriter or artist. That’s just my personal opinion.
7. Will you do some more shows with Plain Jane Automobile?
I hope so.
8. What advice can you give to somebody wanting to make a music career?
Make sure that you love what you do, and enjoy the journey.
9. Is it easier or harder playing solo compared to playing in a band?
10. Who has been your greatest help with your music so far?
Impossible to say. So many people have supported me and shown me love over the years. I’m grateful for them all.
11. Have you had much feedback from people overseas about the album?
Here and there. There hasn’t been much of a campaign for the record yet. I’m hoping that will happen soon.
Thank you Chris.
