We go out to the city's backyard and chat with rock singer Jim Crean. Jim is a recording/touring musician and has been rockin' the stages of different cities and towns for over 39 years! He has fronted many regional and national recording artists. He has won numerous awards in the music industry and was inducted in the Buffalo Music Hall Of Fame in 2019! Jim Crean released seven solo albums on major labels....and most recently released "Insatiable" on Carmine Appice's label Rocker Records.
Jim is not only a solo artist but has been fronting The Appice Brother's (Carmine and Vinny Appice ...and between the two of them played with iconic bands/artists such as Vanilla Fudge/ Rod Stewart/ Ozzie/ Rick Derringer/Black Sabbath/Dio/John Lennon and more) for a decade as their lead singer! He also fronts a tribute band called Hair Nation!
The City's Backyard Podcast originally met Jim backstage in Orange, CT when The Appice Brother's had their show called Drum Wars. Jim truly knows how to rock and is a very cool guy! We are so glad we went to the backyard of Buffalo this time around to get to know him better and look forward to his new album coming out in the future so we can feature more of his music and check in with him again down the road!
