Born and raised in Athlone, Cape Town, South Africa, 25-year-old Jimmy Nevis is an alternative pop singer and songwriter, producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist.
Brought up in a musical home, Nevis struggled to start his music career after matric but he decided to pursue his dreams without the help of a music qualification and wrote his first hit single Elephant Shoes in 2012. Taking his single to as many radio stations as he could, it was not long until the country recognised his talent.
Nevis has to date released three studio albums, namely Subliminal (2012), The Masses (2014) and Chimera (2018) and has had – since 2012 – four number one songs (Heartboxing, Balloon, 7764 and All About It), and four national radio top 10 songs.
Among many of his accolades, Nevis has had the opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the best musicians and producers South Africa has to offer, including MiCasa, Pascal & Pearce, Kwesta and Sketchy Bongo. He has also opened for international stars such as Tevin Campbell and Pharrell Williams, and in November 2017 performed his first solo concert at the GrandWest Arena in Cape Town.
In 2017, Nevis designed and created his own apparel and accessories range under the fashion label York Yard, with pop-up stores in the world-famous V&A Waterfront and Canal Walk shopping centres.
Jimmy's brand new album 'Chimera' drops on the 18th of May 2018 world-wide.
