Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Jimmy Nevis is a young (22 years old) alternative pop singer/songwriter and producer. Jimmy is currently riding high on South African airplay with a number of hit singles including Elephant Shoes, Heartboxing, In Love With You and Balloon – All chart toppers on various South African radio stations, respectively. The Heartboxing Music Video had successfully reached the No. 1 spot on Trace Urban African Chart in early 2013.
Nevis: “I’m trying to get South Africa back into pop music. I think it’s so neglected and undermined and I love the fact that I can be a part of someone’s memory. Pop music has that power. I feel like I’ve been wanting this for so long that I have to embrace it.” Nevis has been very fortunate to share the stage with some of South Africa’s best musicians – getting the opportunity to work with the best in the business. In 2013 he collaborated with the likes of Mi Casa, Pascal & Pearce and Kwesta, and features on their recently released albums.
