First Listen: Jimmy Sterling asks “What Would You Do?”

jimmysterling

Jimmy Sterling’s career started as a backup drummer for a variety of local groups around the inner-city and suburbs of Detroit.  He even performed with Motown’s Edwin Starr and Jimmy Ruffin at a very young age.  This gave Sterling the opportunity to meet his musical idol, David Ruffin, who greatly influenced his vocal style. Jimmy later met the late great General Johnson and for six years recorded and toured with Chairmen Of The Board as a backup drummer/vocalist.

Jimmy has a new single on AmpBound Records entitled “If You Were Me, What Would You Do?” It’s an upbeat tune with a perplexing problem. As Jimmy tells us, “I wrote this song because I know that someone, somewhere has experienced this situation in one way or another.” 

The old school-influenced song is our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
