Jim Valentine is the name given to the unsigned rock and roll band of James (lead vocals & guitar), Bryan (guitar), Greg (bass & backing vocals) and Carlo (drums). Based in Glasgow, Jim Valentine first arrived on the local music scene back in late 2013.
With influences ranging from Black Keys to legendary 60s groups T.Rex and The Kinks, McDonald looks and very much sounds like the frontman of a rock and roll band which looks set to take Scotland (and beyond) by storm. With a ballsy blues filtered sound, hell-for-leather guitar riffs, distinct vocals and a shot of shake, rattle and rock and roll, Jim Valentine have set about rejecting the standard X-Factor Saturday night-in types.
Jim Valentine, who are set to release their debut double a-side single this year, have previously shared the bill with The Amazing Sneakheads, Baby Strange Halfrican, Sharptooth, Dexters, Medicine Men as well as being a regular favourite at This Feeling club nights.
