Jim Infantino, Singer Songwriter, Rockstar Geek
Speak Up Spoken Word Featured Performer, Wed May 26
CMJ Music Report says:
"Jim Infantino wields his razor-sharp poetic flair like a weapon, offering thought-provoking commentary that can sound both humorous and poignant at the same time. Infantino mixes a down-town Lou Reed-style hipness ... that best illustrates the band's smart, imaginative approach."
The Boston Globe says:
"Jim Infantino, ground zero of the Boston trio Jim's Big Ego, is one of those rare songwriters whose wit is as sharp as his sense of melody, and whose intellect is broad and beautifully skewed as his jumble of musical influences."
