Bio

Hailing from Sydney’s North, independent rock band SLIM JIMZ burst onto the scene in 2019 with the release of their debut single, “What Am I Supposed To Do”.

After years of jamming together, schoolmates Ben Roach (vocals/guitar) and Justin Sykes (lead guitar) found the missing pieces of the puzzle when they met a pair of Jims - Northern Beaches boys James McQueen (guitar) and James Dixon (drums). With the inclusion of Alex Hrdina on bass guitar, SLIM JIMZ was born.

With a unique sound stemming from a variety of distinct influences, SLIM JIMZ have received positive reviews from their latest release, with their new single 'Daydream' being added to Apple Music's 'New Music Daily' playlist. The only way is up for the guitar-heavy five piece with more singles to be released throughout 2020.

Slim Jimz taking it down a cruisy notch and wrapping their sweet hearts 'round the fire. Love the way you settle into your sound so naturally. Lifts off and moves through in the most enjoyable way.

Ben's got a helluva voice on him. He and the band have done well on this one to hit the searching, sandy rock vibe.
