Jim Quick who has established his musical reputation and permanent place at center stage in venues across the Southeast with a devoted group of concertgoers known as the Coastline Crazies.

He will finally release his first solo album, Down South that will be produced by music-master.

With the plan to take the divergent sound mainstream, Gary Nicholson will be releasing the album through iSuwanee Records/Quick-Warren Entertainment and available via all major digital outlets May 17. (Distributed by Hit Brothers Records/Sony Red Distribution).

The album’s fourteen tracks deliver what Crazies have come to expect from Quick: everything from hard-driving Carolina back-beats to Georgia Southern-rock, and Cajun inspired grooves to Texas and Delta blues. The patented sound of varied influences complemented by Quick’s sharp-witted delivery will lure more fans, listeners of country radio, as the title track is released to radioApril 25.

Jim Quick himself describes his music as “a virtual American collaboration of every facet of Southern musical culture: Country, Blues, Southern-Soul, Southern-Rock with distinctive hints of ‘Appalachian’ impressions and New Orleans ‘Rag’ Jazz–where the farm boy meets the frat house.” While some may feel the bluesy-tinged music is an outlier on Country radio, Quick contends, “it ain’t so.”
