Jimmy Fong

In 1994, Fong was asked to play with Denver in a private performance in Malaysia for the Sultan of Kedah. "I was humbled in John Denver's presence and and was inspired by that meeting with him," Fong said.

Born in Penang, an island off the West Malaysian Coast, Jimmy Fong has been strumming his guitar since T.V was in black and white. 42 years and thousands of performances later, it's fair to say Jimmy has never been a better performer.

Mingling the sounds of East and West into beautiful music that resonates with his audience is what Jimmy does best. " I grew up with a strong musical influence from both sides" said Jimmy. But it's not just the music. It's the passion and warmth of feeling that goes into every performance that makes Jimmy Fong much more than a musician. It makes him an artist.

Right now, he is widely accepted as one of the finest acoustic guitarists/entertainers in both home countries Australia and Malaysia. Just like John Denver and James Taylor did for the generation of the late 60's & 70's, Jimmy inspires his audience. Creating a new and exciting musical genre that can be enjoyed by all. "The audience was thrilled with Jimmy and he has a great following. He writes quite a few of his own songs which are a credit to him and are most entertaining.His "Jonker Street", which tells the tale of his cultural background, is wonderful & we hope it reaches out to all his fans. Jimmy is currently working on his latest project Jonker Street. It's a candid but beautiful snapshot of Malacca through song
