Nice To Meet You: Christian Artist, Jimmy Needham!
Click on to get more deets on Jimmy’s new album, “Clear the Stage” (buy it here!), his celeb crush, and his fave music-related TV show. It’s all below!
Tell us about your new album!
Jimmy: My new album is called “Clear the Stage.” It’s my 4th record and I’ve never had more fun making an album. It’s very diverse musically. Soul, hip-hop, folk, etc…
Tell us about a defining moment in your childhood. Can be funny, sad, silly, whatever comes to mind!
J: When I was a junior in high school, I performed in our talent show. It was my first time to play guitar and sing on a stage. I sang a Third Day song called “Thief” and won Grand Champion that night. It was a big moment for me to see such an overwhelming response from the crowd. In some ways it was the catalyst for what I am doing today.
So cool! What would you do if you weren’t making music?
J: I’d like to be a teaching pastor at a church or part of some mentoring program for teens.
What hidden talent do you have besides music?
J: I can hold my breath for 3.5 minutes. 🙂
Impressive! Which artist would you like to cover one of your songs?
J: Michael Buble. He can sing better than me and sells more records too. It’s a win-win!
Which artist would you like to collab with?
J: Jon Foreman from Switchfoot or Andrew Peterson.
Do you have a celebrity crush?
J: Yes. Miss Piggy.
Good choice. Any pets?
J: No pets. Had a German Shepherd. Then had a baby. Then sold the Shepherd. The End.
Aw! What’s your favorite TV show?
J: The Sing Off. Acapella. Acamazing.
Are you on Twitter?
J: Yes! @jimmyneedham
