Jim Greer Releases New Album

Producer/Songwriter/Musician Jim Greer released his new record on March 14. The record Ginger Vision was released via Rondo Brothers/ War Chant Records.

As a songwriter Greer crafts impressionistic, melodic songs that beget comparisons to contemporaries such as Sean Lennon, The Flaming Lips, etc., and classic artists like Syd Barrett or Nick Drake. Greer is joined on the album primarily by Oakland drummer/musician Tim Carter, who contributed guitar and percussion to the multi-platinum UK band Kasabian's latest album, and who has been performing live around the bay area with Greer since 1994.

Ginger Vision deals largely with the painful life circumstance of Greer's 20-month old son, Teddy, being diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer, called neuroblastoma, last year. Ginger Vision will take you through the experience Jim and his family has been enduring in 2010 till today. It is a beautiful representation of the hardships Greer is currently going through, all dedicated to his son, Teddy. Make sure to pick up a copy of Ginger today, all proceeds from sales of the album will go to Teddy's fund and assist Jim and his family in handling the costs of Teddy's treatment.
