Jimmy Islip is a singer / songwriter based in Leeds, England. He plays a mixture of folk, country, garage and punk, all through the eyes of a young man growing up and getting old in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
Jimmy has served time in many punk DIY bands, including That Fucking Tank, The Magnificent, Milloy and more. His solo music is an outlet for acoustic songs written over the past decade, as well as a satirical view on modern life.
Over the past couple of years he has spent a long time on the road, playing shows throughout the UK and Europe with the likes of Digger Barnes, Tim Barry, Austin Lucas, Cory Branan as well as a few dates on the Revival Tour with Chuck Ragan and co. His debut album is reflective of this, featuring collaborations with touring friends Jon Snodgrass, Digger Barnes, Helen Chambers & El Morgan.
