Ours frontman, Jimmy Gnecco, who gained worldwide critical acclaim for his dynamic vocals and songwriting style, will release his highly anticipated self-produced first solo effort, â€˜The Heartâ€™ through Bright Antenna / ILG on July 20, 2010. On July 12, 2010 the video for â€œBring You Homeâ€ will be featured on AOL Musicâ€™s homepage http://music.aol.com/. A free MP3 of “Bring You Home” (Live version) is being offered through Gneccoâ€™s website www.jimmygnecco.com starting today.

â€˜The Heartâ€™ is graceful, personal, and at times hymnal. Songs such as â€œMysteryâ€ and â€œTake A Chanceâ€ channel Gneccoâ€™s undeniable talent as a singer, songwriter, and musician. Gnecco performs every instrument heard on the album â€“ guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums among others â€“ but itâ€™s his exceptional and soulful voice that takes center stage. His perfectly controlled falsetto on â€œRest Your Soulâ€ establishes a potent sense of intimacy that he sustains for the recordâ€™s duration.
