Jimmy Willden, award-winning writer, filmmaker and songwriter, returns after a six-year hiatus with his brand new CD, "Melodies of the Aftermath - THE EP"!

The journey through that long hiatus included personal struggles and set backs that directly influenced and inspired Willden. In return, the songs that came from that period of upheaval are some of his most accomplished, and most intimate.

The first single, "Stuck In Love" (to be released in early November), tells the perspective of a back-and-forth relationship, and of the ups-and-downs that come from that. In fact, the song truly represents the theme of the entire CD, which focuses on the downward spiral and ultimate personal redemptions of losing yourself in the face of love.

They say art imitates life; life imitates art. There must be truth to that, because "Melodies of the Aftermath-THE EP" represents the ultimate redemption for Jimmy Willden, whose long, independently-crafted music career has seen him lose himself in the face of love, contemplate quitting, finding the inspiration to continue, and to finally pen some of the best songs he's ever written, according to his fans.

But of course, that journey started somewhere. For Willden, it began with the release of his debut album "Beginnings" at fourteen. Since then, he has released four solo albums, two EPs, toured the western half of U.S., and attracted the attention of MTV, with one of his songs making it onto the soundtrack of the popular dating show, 'Next'.

In his spare time, Willden has also founded the #ccsongwriters group in Corpus Christi, and has written and directed a handful of award-winning films.

Now, Willden is ready to share his new music with you, with the release of "Melodies of the Aftermath-THE EP" set for Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014. In late-spring of 2015, the full album will hit stores and digital formats all over the globe.
And currently, Jimmy Willden, armed with his new live band (Jimmy Willden Band), is excited about bringing these songs to life on stage. A Texas tour is already in the works for December, hitting Corpus Christi, Austin and Dallas. In 2015, Jimmy plans to tour nationwide, and eventually hit the international stage.

Be ready. The hiatus is over, and JWB will be playing in a city near you soon!
