Born on the Isle of Wight, Sol Grimshaw grew up surrounded by diverse musical influences. He learned guitar at seven and piano at eight, was mentored by a musical family, and embraced early jazz, folk, and classical genres.

Influenced by his father's love for early jazz and Hawaiian music and captivated by Django Reinhardt, Sol committed to a musical career. Studying jazz guitar at the Purcell School at 14 and later pursued a 4-year degree at the Guildhall School.

Since graduating with First Class honours, Sol has immersed himself in London’s early jazz and gypsy jazz scenes and established a stellar reputation, playing at renowned venues and collaborating with notable musicians, including members of the London Django Collective.
