JIMMY began playing music in 1996 at the age of fifteen. He chose bass as he preferred the deep tones, as well as the instrument being more percussive. One year later, he joined West Tangleyam with Matt and Paul.
His bass is the result of a project undertaken with his step-father, in an effort to save the instrument; a Fender Precision body, now with a Status Graphite neck and chrome hardware.
Jimmy’s musical influences are Queen, Def Leppard, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Fleetwood Mac. He works as a chef in a city centre Italian restaurant in Sheffield.
