Get To Know: Jimothy
With music inspired by everyday life, it's not hard to find Jimothy's music so relatable.
Jimothy is a hip hop/pop artist from Camden, London, that’s as original in his sound as he is in his appearance.
His music takes on a narrative we’ve never heard before. It’s experimental, it’s polarising, and it’s concepts are things we can all relate to because it’s inspired by everyday life. From riding The London Underground which inspired his song ‘Subway System’, to ‘Fashion’ inspired by going out with your friends and really feeling your outfit, to ‘FUTURE BAE’, inspired by… well, waiting for your future bae to enter into your life, each song addresses new topics, all of which are modern and relatable. That’s why his music is so addictive.
Having made his debut in 2018 and already selling out KOKO in London, it's clear Jimothy is a talent like no other. He's also gone viral with music videos for tracks like ‘Getting Busy!’ and ‘I CAN SPEAK SPANISH’, where he uses his famous catchphrase ‘life is getting quite exciting’. In his latest track, ‘Getting Burberry Socks’, which he dropped on Valentine's Day, the singer talks about designer clothes and captures that rare feeling you get when you like how you look and how you feel.
Oh, and in his spare time, he stars in campaigns with Adidas and poses beside his very own wall art… no biggie.
