Jimmy Yessian was a passionate live performer who connected instantly with his audiences. He performed around the United States and Europe with artists as diverse as Anthony Smith, Brian White, Jeffrey Steele, Allan Rich, Steve Dorff, Al Anderso, and Chuck Cannon, to name a few. He was appointed VP of Creative Development for Ash Street Music Publishing and was in charge of signing and developing young writers; he also signed an exclusive writers agreement with the company. Yessian was invited and performed in Venice, Italy for the World Global Party to help raise money for children’s charities from 180 countries. His song “Stand Tall America,” co-written with Gary Baker (“I Swear” and “I’m Already There”) and Jerry Williams was the featured song in the PBS aired documentary film “One Voice/ The Healing Pole” and is the lead song on the “Inspiration New York” CD.

Jimmy performed solo, founded the “Tall Men Group,” and toured and recorded Jeff Kossack as the duo – “From Different Mothers”. We miss him. He lives on through the memories and beautiful music he made with so many. We all love you Muffin Man.
