Jaimee Eat World is the exclusive Jimmy Eat World discography reimagined by Jaimee Jakobczak. Along with each cover is a blog piece explaining a bit about the recording process and why the song is important to us and as of April 2021, each cover is being livestreamed on our Instagram channel for a fully indepth look at our cover-reproduction recording process.
In addition, there is a mock-umentary that’ll follow the series to its completion slated for March 13th 2024.
This is a multi-media project aimed at showcasing how music both heals and provide insight to daily struggles and experiences using the bands original recordings as its foundation. I cite many of these songs and albums as the first stepping stone in realizing my struggle with alcohol addiction had overtaken my life and many of my greatest passions; incidentally they’re also a resource I turn to regularly in my ongoing sobriety.
I share this project publicly and freely in hopes that it might help others who may be going through similar experiences.
This is a not-for-profit project that is in no way otherwise affiliated with the band other than as described and any income generated from it will be donated to alcohol addiction & recovery services. If you or someone you know needs a place to start with your own recovery, please check out my Resources page.

I’m also actively looking to share and promote other artists own Jimmy Eat World covers in partnership with this project and will be putting together a compilation album of those covers for the end of the project. You can learn more about that at the above blog post, too.
If you’ve already done some Jimmy Eat World-related work, feel free to send me a nudge and a link to it and I’d be happy to cross-promote your work.
