Jim Byrne – New Single – 13th Jan 2022

Songwriter Jim Byrne, who recently signed his first record deal at the age of 59, is releasing the single, ‘This Heart Of Mine Is A Blind Blind Fool’ – featuring Lesley O’Neil. It will be available from 13th January on Fox Star Records.

The song typifies the roots-based influences of his latest EP (i.e., country, blues, Cajun fiddle & accordion, and Scottish folk). It is about the tension between giving in to the temptations of a wandering heart and staying with your true love.

Born in Clydebank Jim spent his teenage years playing in punk bands and many subsequent years playing in garage bands, (most notably, The Primevals). When he set out on a solo career in 2008 he picked up his acoustic guitar and headed towards the Americana genre.
