Hi, Iâm Jimmy Abraham,
I was born in Chigago, raised in Goodwell, in the heart of the Oklahoma Panhandle, in Austin, Texas, and in Albuquerque. Graduated from the University of New Mexico in English Lit. My wife Allison and I worked in the Peace Corps in Malagana de Bolivar, Colombia for two years.
I went back to UNM years later for a Masters in Hispanic Literatures and taught Spanish for six years. I have published poetry in English and Spanish, and work occasionally as a translator. Other activities include letterpress printing and community volunteer work.
As a long-time part-time musician, I played with Stray Dog (a 70âs rock band, songwriting and drinking club), Lawyers, Guns, and Money (a local country rock band), and The Fiasco Bros. Bluegrass Band. My songwriting influences include early country and country blues players, songs from the folk scare of the 60âs, and an occasional nod toward Luis Bonfa or Spike Jones.
I released a CD, âSongwriterâs Notebook, Vol. 1â in 2000. My folk ballad âHayes Hotelâ won Best New Bluegrass Song honors at the 2001 Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield, Kansas. In 2005 âCreepinâ Waysâ won in the Blues category. RECENTLY "Doin' the Vooley-Voo", a tongue-in-cheek tune featuring my playground French was nominated for an award from JustPlainFolks.com
My songs have been covered by local bands, including Elliottâs Ramblers, the Stucco Sisters, and the Duke City Swampcoolers, as well as Dollars, Taxes from Dallas, and the Canote Brothers from Seattle.
I have also written a number of satirical songs including one for the Democratic National Committee called That Bush Ainât Big Enough to Hide that Quayle. (Turned out he was, though.) Ben Daitz, a Fisaco Brother, and I co-wrote Lets Make a Deal with Noriega, Travelinâ John Sunnunu, and Theyâve Got a Card, which were aired on NPR and NBC.
These unsolicited comments came back from DJâs who played âSongwriterâs Notebookâ:
â¦My favorite singer-songwriter CD of 2001!
The songs are great, with very memorable stories and tunes.
Peter Schwarz, Folk Dept. KKUP, Cupertino, CA
â¦songs that are to the point with a great melody.
I am definitely going to spin your tunes.
Dan Alloway, âFolk Furyâ KTEP El Paso, TX
Thanks, and I hope you enjoy the tunes,
in partnership with CDbaby
