Jimmy Tait

 Northcote, Victoria, AUS

Jimmy Tait take listeners on a journey of heartbreak and hope; beginning with the silence and space of their country past, and building to the bedlam and noise of the city where they now reside - all within the confines of a four minute pop song.


Now calling Melbourne home Jimmy Tait are four musicians from different parts of Australia; none of whom are actually called Jimmy. The band coined its name from front woman Sara Retallick's grandfather - Mr. James Tait a drover from north east of victoria.

Retallick is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, a singer and a songwriter. She started playing shows as Jimmy Tait in 2008. Taking on some different incarnations, the band has now settled into its current line up featuring member of The Gin Club, The Wintership and The Orphanage. The band have given support to the likes of Teeth & Tongue, The Gin Club and Graveyard Train.

Jimmy Tait are currently working on their second long player due out in March 2012.
