Born in the Caribbean Island Trinidad, Jimmy Chambers, came to England with great expectations of being a successful singer and has since realised that ambition. 


Having graduated college, Jimmy met up with up and coming vocalists of the day including Robert Palmer with whom he co-fronted the band DaDa.  


Jimmy recorded solo after the demise of DA DA and had success in the dance charts in the 80’s 

before recording an album with Paul Young and doing a world tour with him. He also performed at 

Wembley with Paul at LIVE AID in 1985. 


Following this in 1987 Jimmy teamed up with pals Jimmy Helms, George Chandler and Willy M and 

co-founded Londonbeat. Jimmy wrote the song 'I’ve Been Thinking About You’ which Londonbeat recorded. 


The group wrote a string of hits including '9am' 

which was their first UK hit and reached no. 9 in 

the charts, ‘Build It With Love’ reached no. 5 in the 

US charts and ‘I’ve been thinking about you’ that 

got to Number 1 in 27 countries!! 


Londonbeat still gig regularly all over the world.


Jimmy has also recorded with other major artists 

such as Tina Turner (Break Every Rule) and Fine Young Cannibals (The Raw and the Cooked).
