Jimmy Hall first gained popularity as the lead vocalist, saxophonist, and harmonica player for the band Wet Willie, emerging from Mobile, Alabama. His unique brand of R&B-infused rock and roll and onstage swagger propelled the group’s signature song “Keep on Smilin” to the Top 10 on the Billboard singles chart in 1974. After seven albums with Capricorn Records, Wet Willie movedforward toEpic Records releasing thesingles “Street Corner Serenade” and “Weekend,” both hitting the Top 40. Five other songs were released and placed in the Billboard Top 100. Following this significant success,the label approached Jimmy to record 2 solo albums in the 80s. “I’m Happy That Love Has Found You” was the first single and led to his appearances on TV staples such as American Bandstand, TheMidnight Special, Solid Gold and other musical variety series.Jimmy`s solo career cemented him in the pop culture landscape of the Rock era. His songs have been recorded by Gregg Allman, Jason Isbell, The Marshall Tucker Band, Blackberry Smoke, The Amazing Rhythm Aces, Johnny Russell, and many others. Additionally, Jimmy has been a vocalist and bandleader for Hank Williams, Jr. since 1992. Over the years, Jimmy has been involved in other musical endeavors-The Nighthawks, BHLT (Betts, Hall Leavell and Trucks), the Gregg Allman Band, and guest artist with multiple groups. 

     A big part of the Jimmy Hall narrative has been his extensive friendship andmusical collaborationwith Jeff Beck. Beck’s Flash album recorded in 1985, featured Jimmy Hallonvocals for “Ambitious, Stop Look and Listen, and Gets Us All in the End”and garnered a 1986 GRAMMY nomination. Jimmy toured internationally over the decades with Jeff Beck, playing in many of the world’s top performance venues.

He is also included on Jeff’s 2017 DVD/2CD album release Live at The Hollywood Bowl celebrating Jeff`s 50th year in music. 

He joined forces onstage with Billy Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Jan Hammer, Beth Hart and Steven Tyler to celebrate this honorary event.  From 2014 to 2019 Jimmy was the premier vocalist with Jeff Beck and his band on a world tour across Europe and the U.S. In August of 2019, Rolling Stone magazine praised Jimmy as, “one of the few singers who can fill (Rod) Stewart’s shoes.” 

     Following on the heels of this successful tour, Jimmy was invited to join Rock royalty sons Devon Allman and Duane Betts for the “Allman Family Revival,” a tribute to Gregg and Duane Allman`s music. They performed live at the historic re-opening of Capricorn Recording Studios in Macon, Georgia.  Regionally, Hall co-headlined the official Alabama State Bicentennial grand finale concert at the state capitol. Recently, Hall was featured on National Public Radio promoting the musical artists and other talents originating from Alabama. In 2020, the newly restored Capricorn Studios recorded Blackberry Smoke with Hall for remakes of Wet Willie classics “Keep on Smilin’” and “Grits Ain’t Groceries.” During the 2020 pandemic, Hall focused on collaborating with other songwriters to prepare songs for his highly anticipated new record, produced by Blues luminary, Joe Bonamassa. During this time period, Jimmy was featured on harmonica on Cheap Trick’s recently released album “In Another World.” The 2021 Grammy Awards selected Fisk Jubilee Singer`s Celebrating Fisk! as their award recipient for the gospel roots category.
