"Woodstock Blues"

"Katherines Room"

Canadian Jimfre Bacal plays an engaging blend of folk and blues with a singer-songwriter aesthetic that at times recalls the best elements of Dire Straits and Bob Dylan

"Billy Von Billy"

Beautiful Teetering
I really like the viola-like guitar sound
sprinkled around the acoustic, and even
more, the notes it plays. Nice changes
throughout, and a coffee-drinking vibe without
being a cliche. Has Native American
elements to it, a kind of Spiral Stairs
off-kilter-ness to it but very solid. Beautiful
song.

Bio

Origins: The truth is I was born in Montreal, Canada of Russian heritage, but the real truth is I am an alien, from the planet Gerdar within the Galaxy of Nixulu
Beliefs: I believe in G-d but not religion
Loves: guitars, guitars, guitars

As a kid, my heroes were comics and scientists... A typical pop star might as well have been wearing a placard across his chest which said "I'm ignorant, have no sense of values, and am suffering from low IQ." In 30 years nothing has happened to make me change my view...In my youth I loved mathematics - it seemed to me to be the closest thing to the truth I could get to - u have to come up to it - not bring it down to u... Algebra tells us about the simultaneous processes of abstracting the real and realizing the abstract...Music, represented by black notes on white paper, a truly international language... gives us an opportunity to express powerful emotions that speak in wondrous tongues...I hope my music brings some pleasure/relief to your life...I have lived in 3 cities: Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto, and each has given me something unique that I treasure. Thank you Canada. My mind is in many places, but my heart is in the Canadian Maritimes - Soon I will be coming home...

I consider America to be the brother I never had. I am very lucky to live in the wonderful country of Canada, with my best friend, my brother, living so close by.
