Jimmi Hood's worldwide debut single "Rock-A-Bye, Baby (The Blues Rock Anthem)" is a high-energy, guitar-drenched celebration of American rock and roll that fuses elements of blues, rock, r&b and gospel in a high-octane rock song that keeps it masterfully real. Written, arranged and performed by Hood, this Saturday night feel good anthem produced by Hood and long-time co-producer Peter Rugile features Jimmi's songwriting, his whisky vocal, his infectious "Hey, hey..." chant and his incendiary guitar work characterized by sexy hanging notes with tickle-the-babes after-notes that are likely to have women the world over dancing a "Hallelujah" bump and grind on top of nightclub bars.
An authentic rock and roll musician, Hood is a NEW artist from the revered classic rock era and represents an unprecedented phenomenon for rock music fans, particularly those who feel they were born too late and missed the golden age of rock. Inspired by a Billboard article entitled "30+, Music For Grown-Ups, 80 Million Customers With No Place To Go", Hood developed the concept, artist's company and adult-oriented brand of Uber-Rock. Believing the "R"s in American Rock and Roll stand for "Revolution and Rebellion" Hood is defying last century's youth-oriented model, raising the bar, addressing the long-neglected adult market and intent on restoring the cultural relevance of rock on a global basis with the Uber-Rock Records release of his auspicious debut single. If you've never experienced the thrill of a game-changing rock artist, now's your chance to get onboard, become part of history and witness the birth of Jimmi Hood's Uber-Rock: Classic Rock for the 21st Century.
