"Jimmy Warren to release "Thunderclap Sessions""

Jimmy Warren is about to release another amazing CD! The "Thunderclap Sessions" is a great combination of songs, performances and producing. Jimmy has gathered some smoking hot players to back him on the "Thunderclap Sessions."

Joining Jimmy on bass is Johnny Griparic. As the form bassist for Slash and Richie Kotzen, Johnny currently plays and tours with blues rock legend, Walter Trout.

Holding the pocket on drums is Michael Leasure. Michael has performed with Edgar Winter, Billy Gibbons, Albert Collins and Buddy Miles. Michael has been the backbone on drums for Walter Trout now, for over 10 years.

"Thunderclap Sessions" is Jimmy Warrens most diverse and polished project. Stepping into Roots, American and jazz, the new project will prove to be music that everyone should have in their collection. - Warren Music
