James Tuttle: Vocalist, Guitarist, Song writer
Membership: ASCAP

Jimmy began his music career as a guitar player. He stumbled into singing when a friend suggested he take vocal lessons so he could be a better backup singer. His early musical influences for guitar were bay area guitar legends like Dave Menneketi of Y&T, Neil Schon of Journey. In the early days Jimmy was also influenced by rock guitarists on the scene at that time like, Warren De Martini, Eddie Van Halen, Slash and George Lynch. These guitarists musical styles attributed to give Jimmy a combined style that makes his guitar playing unique. Jimmy's vocal style has been compared to that of Bon Jovi, Daughtry and Chris Robinson of the Black Crows. Jimmy has a very unique style and sound that is his own. Jimmy sings with heart and passion about topics of his growing up, past loves, and a Country Boys dreams. This really gives him his own unique vocal style. Jimmy began singing with bands in the early 80s getting his start in a Duran/Duran style pop band. Jimmy then began to play night clubs all over the Northern California Area. The bar scene was a great way to get your chops up, but Jimmy was not content to play others music.

 

Jimmy has been honing his song writing skills for years and has written over 500 songs and recorded over 5 albums. He recorded a self - titled CD with His Heavy Rock Band, "Vamp Le Stat," in the early 1990's. Jimmy was then signed to a Columbia Records Development Deal in the late 1990s. His most recent recording credit is from 2008 - 2009, releasing a CD with Contemporary Rock Band, "Planet Zer0."  In the last few years Jimmy has worked as lead vocalist, guitarist in his band "Walking Tall" - In 2014 Walking Tall released Volume I and Volume II and the band is currently working on the follow up CD.    When not recording or touring with Walking Tall, Jimmy tours and records with his band "Jimmy Tuttle Band"

Over the last few years Jimmy's Country roots have caught up with him. He was raised on his Fathers small Country Farm in Wilton, California, working his father's crops on an old tractor, milking the cows, and feeding the pigs. Fortunately, Jimmy couldn't deny his family heritage as a Country Boy at Heart, and neither could his songwriting. Almost all of His new songs written and recorded have a unique Country/ Rock lyrical theme and musical flare. Jimmy's new catchy Country/ Rock songwriting style and unique sound place him smack dab in the middle of the modern Country/ Rock music market.

As YA -All have said,
"You Can Take the Boy Outta the Country, But You Can't Take the Country Outta the Boy" - but at the end of the day, my heart belongs to Rock n Roll!
