Ours frontman, Jimmy Gnecco, who gained worldwide critical acclaim for his dynamic vocals and songwriting style, will release his highly anticipated self-produced first solo effort, ‘The Heart’ through Bright Antenna / ILG on July 20, 2010.
Next week, in celebration of the release, Jimmy will chat live with fans about "The Heart" on uStream. The chats, which may include other surprises, are scheduled for Monday July 19th and Saturday July 24th at 7pm EST on http://www.ustream.tv/channel/jimmy-gnecco/.
On July 12, 2010 the video for “Bring You Home” debuted on AOL Music’s homepage http://music.aol.com/. A free MP3 of "Bring You Home" (Live version) is being offered through Gnecco’s website www.jimmygnecco.com.

‘The Heart’ is graceful, personal, and at times hymnal. Songs such as “Mystery” and “Take A Chance” channel Gnecco’s undeniable talent as a singer, songwriter, and musician. Gnecco performs every instrument heard on the album – guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums among others – but it’s his exceptional and soulful voice that takes center stage. His perfectly controlled falsetto on “Rest Your Soul” establishes a potent sense of intimacy that he sustains for the record’s duration.
