Jimmy Nevis brings his unique mix of pop and R&B stylings to the Arts Festival stage, along with his full touring band. Jimmy has received extensive commercial radio success in South Africa with the airplay of a number of his hit singles including Elephant Shoes, Heart Boxing, Balloon, 7764, Misscato, All About It, as well as his breakout new single Don’t Wanna Fight.
Nevis has been very fortunate to share the stage with some of South Africa’s top musicians, including Mi Casa, Pascal & Pearce and Kwesta. Multi award nominated, Nevis is a force to be reckoned with it comes to making South African music with international appeal. Jimmy’s sophomore album, The Masses was recorded at Jimmy’s own studio and co-produced by Ashley Valentine (Locnville, Kwesta and Chad Da Don). Driven by how the music feels, as opposed to its sound, together with a dreamy, tribal and urban edge to its production, The Masses portrays signature Jimmy Nevis qualities such as gospel undertones, quirky lyrics, soulful vocals and catchy melodies.
Nevis has performed on some of the biggest stages and festivals in the country, including Grand West Arena, Cape Town Stadium, Rocking The Daisies, and many more.
