Shimm1 is one of the most charismatic artists you'll ever meet. His wit, humour and sometimes larger than life personality transcends into his music and lyrical delivery.

Shimm1 went to Hull University to study Law, when he found his true potential – music / entertainment! After a successful stint touring with a band throughout most of the North East of England, Shimm1 returned to the Midlands and recorded a demo and played in prestige clubs like 10 Room, Feel the Noise and The Wellington Club to name a few.

Following the success of his demo he then decided to set-up business partnership with close friend Boyc… and 'Blueprint Muzic' was born. Since then he has achieved praise press reviews in the West Midlands and national media (Music Week) for singles 'You Get Me' and video featuring Damon Dash (former record label partner of Jay-Z) and 'Up Your Game'. In between time, Shimm1 has produced music videos, which have cameo'd the likes of Craig David and featured on MTV 'Spanking New', performed to 30,000 at BRMB's Party In The Park and continued to grow his Zygo Battalion organisation.

In 2007, Shimm1 dropped A/B side single 'Stereo' / 'Juicy' ('Juicy' debuts Shimm1's protégé General Kid) and produced and directed TME (The Main Event) Festival. Shimm1 won the prestigious African Caribbean Business Federation Annual Award for Young Entrepreneur 2007.
