Just a bit too earnest to be truly tongue-in-cheek, Jimmy’s music celebrates and mocks the mundane while stirring the soul. Anything from cheesy pop bangers about mobile phones, to moody trad folk exploring the modern-day fur industry, Jimmy’s music has storytelling at its heart.
After performing with The Medlars and releasing their debut EP in 2017, Jimmy has gone solo, with a collection of stories spanning from family and friends, to love, nature, loneliness and life as a medic.
Accompanied by his expressive guitar playing, Nick Siepmann performs songs from the English folk tradition alongside original material which draws from history, myth and the richness of nature.
Folk music brings us the voices of our shared past, and calls us to add our own. The idea of oral tradition – learning, interpreting and sharing – is more vital and present now than it has ever been, and Nick Siepmann is here to play his part in it.
