Volume One Press Release

Volume One Press Release

A Magazine to Have and to Hold, by the Queen of Curation.

Introducing Jimmy Hornet, a new quarterly magazine set to shine a light on the bravely creative. This publication shares the stories of established artists, musicians, authors, performers, and seeks to discover the next generation of talent along the way.

“Over the last twenty years I have owned and operated three live music venues, and two art galleries. I’ve always loved to write and to curate groovy things, whether music, art or design, in venues and galleries, so editing this magazine seems like a natural and timely progression.” Founder and Editor, Anthea Palmer.

When Jimmy Hornet the much-loved music venue was shut down during lockdowns, owner Anthea Palmer turned to the online world. The Hornet Press was launched in 2021 as a monthly digital magazine and a way of staying in touch with its musical community and customers, and it quickly built an underground following.

“When lockdowns ended it turned out we had created an audience that demanded we continue sharing stories. We decided to scour Australia for the best stories to share, and with that Jimmy Hornet the magazine was born.”

The first Jimmy Hornet venue was based in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province, China, and Palmer operated under the much coveted ‘Wholly Owned Foreign Enterprise’ certification. In addition to running the venue, Palmer created a seven city tour of South East Asia for Australian Singer Songwriters.

Jimmy Hornet, the music venue was host to a multitude of international and national acts including Tash Sultana, Jack Jones, Jimi Hocking, and Jordie Lane. It’s safe to say Anthea is a serial entrepreneur having started and launched many successful businesses. Jimmy Hornet is set to enjoy the same success with an already existing, excited and hungry audience.

The magazine is available via the Jimmy Hornet website, and retails for $25 with 1,000 copies available as a Limited Edition.
