Bowskill was first discovered by the legendary Jeff Healey at the age of 11 playing guitar outside of his nightclub in Toronto. Since then, he’s opened shows for such artists as ZZ Top, Dickey Betts, Garth Hudson and Deep Purple, while touring in Canada and internationally in Germany, France, Mexico, Ukraine, and at the World Expo in Japan, among others. He’s also received a Juno Award nomination (Canada’s Grammy).
On Live, Jimmy Bowskill demonstrates his amazing mastery of guitar, with one foot firmly planted in the blues and the other in rock. The album’s dozen songs include his takes on several of the artists who’ve influenced him, including Free (“Walk in My Shadow” and “Ride My Pony”), Peter Green (“Rattlesnake Shake”) and B.B. King (“Three O’clock in the Morning”). Within the trio format, Bowskill dazzles the live audience with a combination of his searing guitar work and soulful, rockin’ vocals.
His talent at such a young age has earned raves from Free/Bad Company vocal legend Paul Rodgers, who has exclaimed, "He's got a great feel. He reminds me of Paul Kossoff [Free], who we sadly lost all those years ago. He's almost the spitting image of him which is incredible."
