“PRS makes the most quality guitars on the planet. They are beautiful and can withstand the punishment that I put them through on stage all while staying in tune! From day one, I knew that the workmanship of these guitars were second to none. I don’t know how they can get any better but they do it every year!”
Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Jimmy Kwong is the guitarist and founding member of the Orlando-based hard rock band – SoulSwitch. Being one of the primary songwriters in the band, Jimmy is the “force” that constantly pushes them to the next level. They have played multiple shows with the likes of Korn, Sevendust, Five Finger Death Punch, and Alter Bridge. He has worked with the industries top producers/engineers/guitarists: Michael “Elvis” Baskette, Jason Suecof, Dave Holdredge, Jef Moll, and John Connolly (Sevendust).
SoulSwitch is about building connections. “I hope fans have a personal connection with the music and the lyrics. I want them to feel connected to the music. That’s how we feel when we play live. By the end of the show, they’re like family.”
“I grew up around a lot of different types of music. I have always kept an open mind to music and enjoy all genres. I love creating melodies and grooves that make you feel something inside that moves you.”
Jimmy uses PRS Custom 22’s exclusively. They can be heard on all his sound recordings and seen live at all of his shows.
SoulSwitch will be releasing their new album “RegeneratE” in early 2015.
