Jimmy 100% Sterling’s career started as a backup drummer for a variety of local groups around the inner-city and suburbs of Detroit. He even performed with Motown’s Jimmy Ruffin at a very young age. This also gave Sterling the opportunity to meet his musical idol David Ruffin who greatly influenced his vocal style. “I Lived It All” features two sterling Ruffin covers (“Heavy Love” and “Statue Of A Fool”). He later met one of the singers with The Chairmen of the Board, Danny Woods, who introduced him to the late great General Johnson. For six years he recorded, and toured with the Chairmen as a backup drummer/vocalist on the Carolina beach music circuit. After an offer from CDS Records based on the strength of his signature song, “At Least I Tried” (the 45 was a collector’s item on the Soul music ever since it’s mid 90s release) he parted with the Chairmen to pursue a career as a solo artist.
“I Lived It All” is Sterling’s debut album. The album features 13, ten of which are new tracks produced by Sir Jonathan Burton including the showstopping ballad “I’m The One That Should’ve Been”, the retro midtempo R&B of “Never Gonna Give You Up” and the aforementioned dance track “Heavy Love”. There’s also a brand new version of “At Least I Tried”, while the original version also appears as one of three bonus tracks. Jimmy 100% Sterling is one hundred percent Southern Soul meets Motown!
