Live and Local: Jimmi Carr

Creative Penrith By Night

Jimmi Carr is a singer/songwriter and music producer from the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. He has released 7 albums under his own name, including the new album Flight Cycle, which was formed part of his recently completed PhD on cross-cultural composition. He has also released two albums with his electronic/rock fusion band Innamech.

Jimmi’s music is both original and accessible. He draws on a wide range of influences that move through roots, funk and rock. He displays an impressive pop sensibility and classic song writing skills. His style could be described as somewhere between Ray Lamontagne, Wilco and Beck. The music of Innamech is a fusion of psychedelic and prog-rock, and electronic dance music.

As a teenager, Jimmi played in a funk metal fusion outfit Tang, which toured extensively, playing major festivals and supporting bands such as D.I.G. Since then Jimmi has played his own music solo and in acoustic and electric bands. He has gigged constantly, playing on bills with acts including Xavier Rudd, Jeff Lang, Lior, Adalita, Doc Neeson and Hermitude.

Rhythms Magazine described Jimmi’s new albums as “Sparkling and diverse. An exceptional collection of vibrant music.”
