Leigh Kimmins

Leigh is a 25-year-old city hopper fresh from a stint in London and now hiding out in his native Ireland. The Irishman has lived in the English capital as well as Paris and Tokyo, gleaning influences from the underground scenes in each place. 

A recent guest mix on NTS was a chance to platform his love for African music, especially jazz from up and down the continent. He continues his jazz journey with a foray into some soulful Parisian jazz mixed together with free jazz classics from the US and beyond. 

Outside of mixing, Leigh is a fashion model who has hit the catwalks for the likes of Gucci and Louis Vuitton and also spent some time as a journalist in Liverpool and London.
