Jim Corbin is guitarist for the Brighton based Alternative Soul band ‘Tiny Dragons’. After getting his first guitar at 13 he slowly began teaching himself for 4 years whilst playing in and out of various school bands. It was when he turned 17 that music became the only thing in his life worth focusing on and a year later enrolled at the ‘Brighton Institute of Modern Music’ where, after completing his BA Honours Degree, now focuses full time on his songwriting skills as an original artist.
Influenced by everything from classical to dance music productions and left field electronic music, his overtly broad taste in music has moulded a style of playing that now aims to explore new sounds from the guitar.
His Band “Tiny Dragons” was named due to the small size of the band but the immense sound they create. Tiny Dragons were invited to perform at London Fashion Week for world renowned fashion designer Hussein Chalayan MBE (Lady Gaga Stylist) for his Grey Line Collection. David Byrne was in attendance and was impressed with the bands alternative sound.
Fronted by Lizzie, who is captivating audiences with her stunning soulful voice that juxtaposes perfectly against her driving bass and the cinematic guitar tones, the band find inspiration in the likes of Billie Holiday and Esperenza Spalding to Faithless, Pink Floyd and Massive Attack. They take this passion and knowledge for great music and create something truly unique.
"Come Alive" is their epic debut single from their new 4 track EP released March 4th 2013 that showcases brilliantly what make this band so exciting to all that see and hear them.
“I knew from the moment I sat the FAT50H on top of my Palmer 4x12 cabinet it would deliver the goods. With sound so cinematic, warm and deep, i’ve found the voice my guitar deserves.”
