    Ours Singer Jimmy Gnecco to Release Self-Produced Solo Album - Album due out on July 20

    Jimmy Gnecco, singer for Ours, who sound more like The Bends-era Radiohead than the current Radiohead does, will release his first solo album, The Heart, on July 20 through Bright Antenna. Gnecco produced the platter himself.

    Gnecco is ever the multi-tasker, who performs every instrument heard on the album – guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums among others. But he has always been heralded for his exceptionally high-pitched yet soulful voice, which asserts itself in Ours and on the solo album! He is also known for his melancholic musical moods. Of his style, Gnecco said, "There's enough pain out there without you going looking for it, but certain combinations of notes and chords can bring out compassion and a sense of connection in people. Happy or sad, I want to make music that makes my heart feel…a lot of this record is about me embracing my past and finding peace with it."

    Gnecco will tour Greg Laswell this Spring and Summer.
