I’m Jimmy and I’m a bit of a fan of something called music. I’ve interviewed more people than I can count and as a result have formed some excellent friendships with both musicians and fans alike. I also enjoy both writing my own music and performing live. You’ll either find me in the crowd having a fun time and chatting to folk or scuttling around a photo pit…
