Review: Jim Ivins Band "Free-P" [EP]

The newest EP from the Jim Ivins Band, "Free-P", continues their fine tradition of radio-friendly acoustic driven pop rock. Fans of their debut full-length CD, "99 cent Dreams" and the edgier "Back To Reality" EP are going to be very pleased to have a few more quality tracks from JIB to add to their mp3 players. This young band is off to a good start, already securing an opening slot for acts such as Carolina Liar, The Ataris, and Pat McGee Band.

If you are looking for music to jolt you out of bed or help you run a marathon, don't think JIB. If you are looking for something that might help you sleep, again, don't consider JIB. However, if you are looking for something in the middle - just right - that is when you would listen to JIB. JIB's brand of melodic rock is generally mid to up-tempo, and always a gentle treat for the ears. The music is organic and vocals earnest, with lyrics almost anyone whose been a teenager can relate to.

The Jim Ivins Band will appeal to all fans of acoustic based rock, so if you dig Highway 9, Sister Hazel, or the softer side of the Goo Good Dolls, be sure to check them out.
