Four years after going on hiatus, Jimkata is back with a renewed sense of purpose and an extraordinary new album. Recorded in Syracuse with producer Jason Randall, Bonfires finds the trio digging deep and stretching their boundaries with bold, intoxicating arrangements fueled by swirling synthesizers and anthemic hooks. The songs here are at once modern and classic, blurring the lines between the organic and the electronic as they reckon with doubt, struggle, and perseverance in a search for truth and meaning. Like much of Jimkata’s catalog, Bonfires delivers transcendence in tight, dancefloor-ready packages, but there’s a sense of freedom at play that pushes the trio’s performances to new emotional heights, a kind of liberation that can only come from learning to let go of expectation and embrace the moment.
“I think the time away brought us all more maturity, more patience, an ability to see the bigger picture,” says singer/guitarist Evan Friedell. “We all gained a lot of perspective on life and the value of being in a band together.”
Indeed, the heart and soul of Jimkata has always been the enduring bonds between Friedell and his longtime bandmates, guitarist/keyboardist Aaron Gorsch and drummer Packy Lunn. Pals since middle school, the three launched Jimkata in 2005 while attending Ithaca College, where they quickly found an audience for their relentlessly feel-good performances, which grew from local house parties to club, theater, and festival dates on the strength of a series of critically acclaimed albums. Popdose hailed the band’s “bubbly sweetness,” while American Songwriter praised their “organic chemistry,” and Relix raved that the trio’s sound “proves that rock-based music still has a place in the world of four-on-the-floor beats.”

ABOUT CRAIG WATERS & THE FLOOD:
Deep South soul-funk by way of East Nashville, TN, Craig Waters and the Flood dive into a historically rich and genre-bending arena to create their own unique sound. With refined lyrical prowess and elite singers, CWF provides a window into a world of love and squalor, juxtaposed with turbo-funk and jazz instrumentals. This is exciting, powerful, hip-shaking music for the people, delivered by musicians at their highest level.
Born and raised in Augusta, GA, Craig Waters grew up in a musical household playing blues guitar and the trombone in conservatory big bands. As a child, Craig’s blues-playing father strongly encouraged family ear training sessions while religiously spinning records on Sunday mornings. Relocating to Athens, GA, Waters began studying with multi-Grammy award-winning organist Ike Stubblefield and Jazz guitar great Grant Green Jr. After years of touring the Southeast, Craig has developed into an accomplished guitar player and performing artist, founding Craig Waters and the Flood in 2012 as the next step in his evolution. Craig Waters and The Flood have shared bills with Marcus King Band, George Porter Jr., and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk.
In the Summer of 2015, Craig moved to Nashville, TN, and built a relationship with Matt Leigh at the illustrious recording studio, The Tracking Room, where he began to write and produce Craig Waters and the Flood’s debut record, “Love & Squalor, Vol. 1.” This record, due out in 2022, is an autobiographical novella that musically emotes scenes from Craig’s unique and challenging upbringing.
“A Love Like You,” the album’s first single, is available now for streaming and digital download on Ropeadope Records.
