This is the website of Jimmy Reiter, guitar player, singer and song writer.
I have been playing with my band in clubs and on festival stages all over Europe for several years. Previously, I was the lead guitarist with US Blues singer/harmonica player Doug Jay in his band The Blue Jays as well as supporting player for numerous international Blues artists on their European tours.
I released my first solo album, the award winning "High Priest Of Nothing" in 2011, followed by "Told You So" in 2015 and "What You Need" in 2019. After three studio albums, the time had come to release a live CD in 2021. "Live" features 14 favorites from the Jimmy Reiter band's repertoire and was recorded in Osnabrück, Germany and Vienna, Austria.
In 2015 I was voted "best contemporary blues artist in Germany" and two years later, my band won the "German Blues Award" as the best German blues band.
For TrueFire, the largest online platform for educational guitar videos, I have produced two guitar courses, "Soul Guitar Guidebook" Volumes 1 and 2.
When I'm not touring with my band, I play occasional gigs or record with other artists. I can be heard on numerous CDs by colleagues of mine.
Hope to see you around!
