One of the true originals in Canadian music has moved from Nashville to Nova Scotia, and is celebrating with music only he could make. Jimmy Rankin's new Moving East is pure East Coast, a homecoming album featuring true stories, tall tales and bittersweet ballads, and the classic folk-rock sound that Rankin helped pioneer.
One of the most famed Canadian songwriters, Jimmy Rankin wrote such classic Rankin hits as 'North Country,' 'You Feel The Same Way Too,' and the Juno winning single 'Fare The Well Love,' voted the #1 East Coast song of all time by CBC listeners across Canada. His own hits include 'Followed Her Around,' 'Morning Bound Train,' and 'Cool Car.' Jimmy's the guy who wrote 'Mull River Shuffle' a Cape Breton anthem with an all-ages cult following, jamming dance floors and mosh pits at parties, weddings and raves as the last big song of the night.
