Glaswegian Jimmy Somerville first shot to fame back in 1984 with groundbreaking band Bronski Beat. "Smalltown Boy", their debut single, made the top three in Britain and was a huge hit all over Europe. It not only introduced the world to Jimmy's unusual "falsetto squeal" as he once described it, but confronted them with a lyric addressing the isolation and rejection felt by a provincial gay youth forced into leaving town. The hits continued before Jimmy left the band and formed The Communards, hits "Don't Leave Me This Way" and “For A Friend” followed before Jimmy went solo chalking up another 5 hit records.
Today Jimmy performs all over the world on 80’s revival tours and private parties.
