about

Jimmi Nolan's newest musical collection can be described in just 17 syllables, in the form of a 'Haiku', a traditional Japanese poem:

Love that comes then goes.
Life carries on, be happy.
Welcome to the world.

Through life's lessons we reach 'Milestones', the accompanying soul bearing EP to the the spirit harmonising folk single 'Make me Happy'.

About Milestones:

So much happens in one's life in 5 years - the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, through which we learn so much about ourselves and world around us. The six tracks on Jimmi Nolan's latest EP have been carefully chosen, that for him represent most sincerely these experiences and reached these so called milestones.

The debut EP, ‘Milestones’ was recorded at various studios in London including Nevo Sound Studio in Notting Hill (by accomplished producer Andy Schrav, credits include Paper Aeroplanes, Renny Field and the Hussy Hicks), Raph White and Andy O’Neil at Bowerman Studios in Chelsea. The EP features strong musical support and collaboration from Raph, Andy and Schrav, The Hussy Hicks and the rhythm section of the Foreign Beggars live band.

“I dedicate this collection to my beautiful Jade and son Séamus.” - Jimmi x

Track Name: Blizzard
Blizzard

Girl from the city
Quit school early
For life on the road
To try make something
She never came home
She was never alone

Grew up with folk
Much older than her age
Missed out her youth
To gig on the big stage
She never came home
She wasn’t full grown


She was caught in a blizzard that shadowed her soul
But heard a bird singing something sweet
Lay her head right here and shared her dream
There was something kind of bold beneath the fire and coals
Of a girl buying back belief
She never came home


Unhinged the mother
Made her decisions
Lost her brother
Set out on a mission
Cover was blown
They never came home

Struggled to find
A man that could take it
Pent up with fear
To lose such a great thing
She never found home
She was always alone


She was caught in a blizzard that shadowed her soul
But heard a bird singing something sweet
Lay her head right here and shared her dream
There was something kind of bold beneath the fire and coals
Of a girl buying back belief
She never came home
She was never alone


She had the time of her life
Chasing summers back and forth again
Running from city to town
To show the globe who she is
Now just looking for love
With all the loving world to spend
On an authentic smile
But a careful smile
Track Name: Make Me Happy
Make me Happy – Jimmi Nolan © 2014

Well the sun is shining through a bay window
I can see the reflection of a man who needs to know
You’re smiling

And I know I’m right when I say we’re blessed
With unconditional love, unconditionally
We’re smiling
Oh keep smiling

CHORUS:
Make me Happy
Just by being Happy
Make me Happy
Just by being Happy
We Happy
You Happy

Well the world is older than a turtle’s shell
Doesn’t stop you from stressing when heaven turns to hell
Keep smiling

Well it won’t be the first time and it won’t be the last
You’re taking pain from all the gravity pulling from the past
Oh keep smiling

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Oh the earth’s vice can squeeze your heart sometimes
And lift it up and drop it from height
But there’s no point in crying
Just to love
Just to care
Just to know you belong here

CHORUS to fade

Chords:

Track Name: Miracle with Eyes
Miracle with Eyes

Rolled through the ages
Rolled into love
Called to the angels
From depths of our souls
A calming feeling
Like flowered herb
Came and settled
Our nerves

Stared without breathing
At monochrome
Beyond the small head and torso
A real existence
Of yours and mine
Shivers of joy permeated our spines


CHORUS:
Send us a miracle
Some kind of miracle
We got a miracle
Look at this miracle
Miracle with Eyes


Walk down the high street
Each way I turn
Young men are dad's
Old one, much to learn
Make it look easy
Like Superman
Fly by cape
Will ya teach me how to stand


CHORUS:
Send us a miracle
Some kind of miracle
We got a miracle
Look at this miracle
Miracle with Eyes


I wake suddenly
My hair is damp
Roll over to you
Place my hand
Upon your belly
A fluttered flow
3 hearts in a row

World with its reasons
We’ll never know
Why sometimes
We can’t seen to let go
But I know something
I never did
Ask sometimes
And the universe gives


CHORUS:
Send us a miracle
Some kind of miracle
We got a miracle
Look at this miracle
Miracle with Eyes


(Falls to the water, drifts to the light
Mother cradles close with new love in her eyes)

Miracle We got a miracle
Miracle really is magical
Miracle Look at this miracle
(Face that measured change we’re no longer the same)

Miracle We found a miracle
Miracle scale beyond biblical
Miracle our perfect miracle
(Fell to the water and into a name)

Miracle love for this miracle
Miracle marking our pinnacle
Miracle beautiful miracle
