Jimblah is a producer, MC and vocalist from Adelaide, South Australia. Hailing from the Larrakia Nation in Top End Northern Territory, he is influenced by a wide range of different artists and genres, his main passion being hip hop. The most striking thing about Jimblah is not his ability to sing, rap and produce beats—it's the eyebrow-raising fact that he does them all so well. His flow alone outshines most MCs, but his tone and singing style are so memorable, so drenched in soul, it's music for the heart. His signature dusty, chopped-up melodic productions are further testament that Jimblah is truly a special talent.
His debut album Face The Fire transcends hip hop, soul or indie music scenes; it has the rare quality of being able to hang back a little, as though not desperate for your attention, knowing that you'll be drawn in before long.
Jimblah was the inaugural winner of the Hilltop Hoods Initiative (2007) and was featured as triple j Unearthed Artist of the Week. He has performed at major Australian music festivals including Big Day Out, The Dreaming Festival and Good Vibrations.
His first show with his new label was at the iconic Sydney Opera House for Dr Seuss Meets Elefant Traks (Graphic Festival) and was named by Rolling Stone in their Top 20 Acts to Watch In 2013.
In July, as part of NAIDOC week celebrations Jimblah appeared on triple j Like A Version flipping Matt Corby's 'Resolution' and debuting his new single 'March'. His album 'Phoenix' was released on 11 October 2013. It was universally adored by critics and fans and quickly stormed to #1 on the AIR Chart. Phoenix went onto to make the shortlist for the prestigious Coopers Australian Music Prize.
