Jimmy Sterling started as backup drummer/vocalist with a local Detroit group called Total Capacity.  The group performed around the city and eventually landed shows backing up Carl Carlton and Motown greats Edwin Starr and Jimmy Ruffin.  While rehearsing for an up-coming tour to England with Jimmy Ruffin, brother of The Temptation's David Ruffin Jimmy Sterling was introduced to David.  After that meeting with David Ruffin, Jimmy started to watch David and his vocal style developing his own vocal stylings.


      Shortly thereafter Jimmy Sterling was asked to join General Johnson and The Chairmen of The Board where he I toured the Carolina Beach music circuit with for six years.  Leaving General Johnson and The Chairmen of The Board Jimmy Sterling found his way to Studio City California where he was signed to Americom Records.  Motown producer Art Stewart produced two singles on Jimmy Sterling the first entitled  "At Least I Tried" the second "Lets Do It" both released by Americom records.  After leaving Americom Records Art Stewart decided to take Jimmy Sterling back in the studio to record "Got To Give It Up" a platinum hit that he originally produced on Marvin Gaye.


     Jimmy Sterling has been performing with various groups on the West Coast.  CDS Records signed Jimmy Sterling in December of 2012 and rereleased "At Least I Tried" and the Art Stewart produced "Got To Give It Up" on their compilation CD "Southern Soul: From The Beach, To The Street, To The Club".
