Glaswegian born 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. Bronski Beat went on to have several lively pop dance hits including 'Why?' (No. 6) and a cover of former gay icon Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" (No. 3), on which they joined forces with Marc Almond.

With Richard Coles he formed The Communards who spawned the No 1 classic hit "Don't Leave Me This Way', 'So Cold The Night' (No. 8) and 'Never Can Say Goodbye' (No. 4). Jimmy then embarked on a solo career which saw him chalk up more hits including another stirring disco cover of Sylvester's 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real )' (No. 5), 'To Love Somebody' (No. 8) and Francoise Hardy's "Comment Te Dire Adieu", a duet in French with June Miles (No. 14). Jimmy has also collaborated on singles with the The Weathergirls and Sparks.

Jimmy performs his solo hits as well as the many hits he had with his two hugely successful bands - Bronski Beat & The Communards.
