On Tuesday Feb. 21st 2012 Jimmy Gresham was released from a Florida prison. Many say he was wrongly convicted and not given a fair trial. He has spent over twenty years in prison. He was originally doing 30 with no chance of parole and due to a fluke change in Florida laws, was released. Jimmy is from Ft Walton and recorded at Playground as well as released other records with other companies.

In 2007 Some of Jimmy's deep voiced soul recordings were included in "Soul Resurrection" The Playground Story Vol. 1 which led to his version of "No Way To Stop It", also recorded at Playground, being used in 2009's "Friday The 13th" film.
