My Experience as a Vocalist

Described by Jack Massarik, Evening Standard as a “stylistic vocalist with fantastic in-person delivery” and “All heart, All soul, All music” by the legendary Mark Murphy, Jimmy has released two albums to date: ‘Alltogether’ through Proper Music and ‘All Upon a Lovely Summer's’ Day’ through the British Jazz label F-IRE. “A Jazz cousin of Fairport Convention’s folk-rock classic ‘Liege and lief’” – Jazzwise

Within his various ensembles, he explores various styles of singing including Jazz, Folk, Pop and the Anglo American resurgence, which he encourages his students to explore, believing that a rounded education and an understanding of stylistic fusion leads to individuality.

Since 2007 and 2017 Jimmy was the Module Leader for Performance on the BMus degree course at London College of Creative Media (LCCM) and is currently the main vocal teacher at ICMP London, and a visiting lecturer at Westminster University.

Experience As A Session Singer

As a session singer, Jimmy has recorded for Carlsberg, Bupa, Aardman films, Mcasso Music, Roger Taylor, and continues to write and arrange songs with other artists and producers, including most recently producer and arranger Sean Hargreaves at Tileyard Music.

Jimmy has toured and recorded with Sir Tom Jones, The Commitments, Rodriguez, Maroon Town, Roger Taylor, Mbawula, and exclusively on TV’s ‘The One Show’ and ‘This Morning’.

My experience as a session musician has helped me develop my teaching style to suit students of all levels as well as being able to help learners develop their confidence and performing skills. I believe through my guidance you can become the vocalist you have always wanted to be.
