Take four classically trained musicians, add four original indie pop artists and you get some incredible tensions. A little dangerous? Perhaps. A little chaotic? Most definitely. But it's just this kind of eccentric mayhem driven by the energy and passion of performance that is the catalyst for change.

Inspired by sounds as diverse as Count Basie, Royal Crown Revue and the Beastie Boys, ‘Jimmy Styles and The Easy Company’ have their own high energy take on a genre that makes people want to drink, dance and buy records!

The sound is raw with strong instrumentals, high energy and lots of fun. The look is a retro 1920’s – 1940’s style. Over the past couple of years, here in Australia and around the world the retro/ vintage mode has exploded from the underground scene into a true cultural phenomenon. ‘Jimmy Styles and The Easy Company’ are in the front of the queue.
