The Reverend Timmy James

Traditional Lower East Side Hillbilly Slide Country Blues

The Reverend was born in a 1958 Cherry Red Oldsmobile Roadmaster that was being used as a chicken coop on the outskirts of Akron, Ohio. After working the Ohio Canal Medicine Show Circuit for several years he was coerced into the ministry by an ill-conceived dog track bet. After several "end-of-the-world" predictions proved untrue (but very, very profitable) he made his way to New York City where he lives a quiet, ascetic life of spiritual study, song writing and robustly varied acquiescence to almost constant temptation.
