Young Jimmy – Sweet Maria

Young Jimmy

Hailing from the Bronx, Young Jimmy is the juxtaposition to an environment dominated by hip-hop, gangs, and gun violence. With his latest alt-indie love song – ‘Sweet Maria’ – the emerging artist draws from past relationships and his time growing up in the borough that was the only in New York with a Hispanic majority. Showcasing a more vulnerable side, this romantic single is a glimpse into the anticipated DELUXE debut album by Young Jimmy, slated for release later this year. Utilizing his unique vocals and embodying a guitar focused production to accompany the artist’s original sound, ‘Sweet Maria’ remains Hood Rock with undertones of hip-hop influences.

Past anthem ‘Pull Up To The Party’ – took it up a notch in its alternative exploration. Continuing the hood rock sound, the tune was more heavy in its delivery and differs from the romantic undertones and slower tempo of ‘Sweet Maria’. The variation in Young Jimmy’s discography proves impressive for such early days, including press from outlets like Clash, Wordplay, and the Real Ding. Expecting big things from the musician, Indie Midlands had the opportunity to chat with Young Jimmy after the release of ‘Pull Up To The Party’ – you can read the interview here.
