Jimmy Nevis Lyrics
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Jimmy Nevis is a young (22 years old) alternative pop singer/songwriter and producer.
Signed to Cape Town record Label, Rude World Records, with a publishing, licensing and distribution deal with David Gresham Records, Jimmy Nevis released his debut album entitled “Subliminal” in November 2012.
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.
Nominated for awards such as SAMA Kia Record of The Year, Wawela Awards – Best Male Artist & Composer and a Channel O African Music Video Award, Nevis returns with his highly anticipated Sophomore album “The Masses”
