Jimmy Jax Pinchak is a seventeen-year-old accomplished actor and musician who is seriously pursuing his music career. His next acting roll is that of Peter Wiggin in Ender’s Game to be released in 2013. His music career took off when Martha Troup (former manager of INXS) discovered Jimmy on the internet, checked out one of gigs and became his music manager. Jimmy has recorded his demo at Westlake Studios in Los Angeles with his original guitar driven rockers. Currently, he has formed a new band: Tom Camillo on bass, Gene Luzala on drums, Nathan Leigh on keyboards, Stan Nirenberg on guitar and Jimmy Jax Pinchak on lead guitar and vocals.
The band is a late 60s influenced blues/rock band with a contemporary feel. He has been influenced by Freddie King, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Beatles, The Allman Brothers and his favorite Eric Clapton. He also follows the Black Keyes and Gary Clark Jr.
Some of the band’s classic blues include “Trouble No More” “Going Down” and “Crossroads.” His original, “Tell Me” is a rocker which
includes a sizzling jam using his Voc Wah Wah pedal. Jimmy also demonstrates his abilities on slide with his original “Free Your Mind.” His song “Into the Fire” has a slight country rock feel to it which Jimmy co-wrote with Wally Brandt from “Whiskey Falls.” In June, JImmy goes back into the studio to record an album which he intends to release at the end of the year.
His acting career credits include doing the movements for “Know-It-All” in the computer-animated movie The Polar Express (voice and face of the character are provided by Eddie Deezen) and playing the lead in made-for-TV movie All I Want For Christmas and smaller roles in Hostage and Meteor. He also played Eddy in Over There and Mark in Let Me In, a remake of the Swedish film Let the Right One In. In 2008, Jimmy starred in the family comedy pilot “Growing Up Normal” about a child actor growing up in Hollywood, written by his father Jim Pinchak. The pilot also starred Gage Golightly, and Thomas Garner.
