JIMMY and the Beautiful Mistakes
Singer and songwriter Jimmy Marino is from the Motor City, and these days he’s making music in Pittsburgh where working class roots resonate with his style of rock and roll. A multifaceted instrumentalist and prolific songwriter, Jimmy keeps his band on their toes with songs that span the musical spectrum; Rock, Roots, Blues, Folk, and even a touch of country. He grew up in the 70’s and 80’s listening to everything from classic rock to disco to new wave to punk, and he played classical music in an orchestra through his college years. So you can imagine he doesn’t feel boxed in or married to any one musical genre.
After being away from music for many years, Jimmy found himself writing and playing again after big changes in his life. Much of the material was performed solo at Pittsburgh’s open mic scene and on street corners downtown. As he ventured out, he found both friends and like-minded musicians and he asked a few of them to help him make a record. It wasn’t until a few months later that the group decided they wanted to keep playing together and so the band formally came together. It was a Beautiful Mistake. But make no mistake, they are ready to make an impact on Pittsburgh’s music scene and beyond.
Our music is inspired by the idea of mistakes being something beautiful. We are all hopelessly flawed humans, stumbling our way forward through our mistakes toward a better day and hopefully, better selves.
We hope our music speaks to you wherever you are in your life whether is a time of happiness or sorrow or contentment. Remember every mistake can become something beautiful if you let it.
