  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: I used Google Translate for the majority of the sources. Assuming that the publications are reliable, I looked at the type of references and what they said. Unfortunately, they are not in-depth about the subject. Some are interviews and others are mentions. I cannot locate any of the music on charts so based on what is presented, I do not feel the subject meets notability guidelines. CNMall41 (talk) 04:53, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Benjamin Schandy, also known under his stage name Jimi Somewhere, is a norwegian singer, music producer and designer.[1][2] His musical genres are alternative[3], indie and electronic pop[4].

In 2016 Jimi was named "Ukas Urørt" by norwegian radio station NRK P3.[5][6] The following year, he released his debut EP Memoria[3], through his record label Inquiring Minds. According to Schandy, he and his producer Milo Orchis recorded the entire EP in their dorm room at school[7], before posting it on SoundCloud in 2016. He later released music videos for the two singles off the EP, "Escape"[8] and "The Beach".[9]

In 2017 American magazine The Fader posted a list of 15 Scandinavian artists to listen to in 2018, with Jimi as number 9.[4] Schandy has performed at festivals such as Ekkofestival[10], by:Larm,[11] and Slottsfjell.[7] He has also performed in Berlin at the Ja Ja Ja Nordic Music Affair[12]. In 2018 he joined Norwegian indie band Boy Pablo on their European tour.[11][13]
