Sounds in the Suburbs presents...
JJ Gilmour plus special guests

Sat 17 August 2019

Internationally acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter JJ (Jinky) Gilmour made his recording debut in 1989 with The Silencers, one of Scotland’s top bands who enjoyed huge success throughout Europe. A naturally gifted musician, he first joined the band as a backing vocalist though later in the bands career JJ progressed seamlessly to lead vocalist.

Seven action-packed years of gigging and recording ensued during which The Silencers had gold albums, sold over half a million records for BMG/RCA, headlined major rock festivals and were regulars on hit TV shows across Europe. However, all good things must come to an end and after this successful period with the band, JJ decided he needed to take on new challenges and embarked upon a solo career.

Jinky is one of Scotland’s musical icons. One of the funniest men you could have the pleasure to be in the same room as, he’s toured with everyone from Chrissie Hynde to Steven Seagal. Recently, he’s been performing as one half of the critically-acclaimed Caezar. On his own though, Jinky is equally as superb. His stories will you have crying tears of laughter. His songs will break your heart.
