The best kept secret in music



"...Not everyone would have the guts to bring bagpipes to In The City, especially if you're playing somewhere like the Scholar, but Jimmy Docherty not only did it, but pulled it off spectacularly. Admittedly, they only make a brief appearance, but the Manchester-based Scot had many more tricks up his sleeve, not least his intensely powerful voice and ear for a damn fine tune. He's easily one of the best songwriters in the city at the moment and his acoustic-led sound deserves a much bigger audience..." - BBC ONLINE


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


****"Forget adjectives like accessible and mainstream, this beast has platinum sales tattooed across its scrawny, ravenous hide.. Ignore the wannabes this is about to go nuclear." The Hit Sheet**** "Jimmy is an essential new British act. To put it in a word (or three) hes f**king brilliant." Drowned in Sound**** "Blisteringly powerful toons, stuffed with more hooks than a fishermans jacket." Unsigned**** "Jimmys vocal delivery is the epitomy of controlled force, falling effortlessly from scream to short-spark. Unmissable." Metro**** "Even in the more mellow songs all eyes remained on him as he projected his clear, powerful voice, contorting in seeming pain at the effort."
