Jimmy Barnes is a Scottish-born rock singer-songwriter who grew up in Adelaide. His career, both as a solo performer and as the lead vocalist of the legendary band Cold Chisel, has made him one of the most successful and distinctive artists in Australian music history. A prolific songwriter and performer, Jimmy has been a storyteller for more than 40 years, sharing his life and passions with Australians of all ages at over ten thousand gigs throughout his adopted homeland. In the process he has amassed more #1 albums in Australia than The Beatles: four with Cold Chisel and twelve as a solo artist, including the iconic For the Working Class Man. Across his career Jimmy has sold over 12 million albums and been inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame twice. His bestselling memoirs have sold more than 400,000 copies and he has won the Australian Book Industry Award for the Biography Book of the Year twice, in 2017 and 2018 - the only Australian author to do so. Jimmy lives in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales with his wife, Jane.
