Charles “Jimi,” Jimerson, originally from St. Louis, Missouri, enlisted in the Navy in July 2008. During this time Jimi began his media career shooting quick comedy sketches and low budget music videos on YouTube, simultaneously coining the name SlightlySpecial. Jimi and his younger brother Jimi “Keylo” Stock collaborated on YouTube in 2013, forging the early stages of the media production company.
Keylo, a graduate from The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences of Tempe Arizona is an experienced musical engineer and artist, making music for himself and fellow musicians. In 2017, Jimi officially undertook professional photography, taking a wide variety of photos for artists, holidays, and promotional club events in the San Diego area.
In early April 2019, Keylo moved to San Diego to work as the Chief Engineer of Jimi’s up-and-coming Media Production Company. Shortly after Keylo’s arrival Jimi met Christian Murmer, and the two discussed the idea of launching a podcast under Jimi’s brand“SlightlySpecial”.
On May 6th, 2019 SlightlySpecial Media was officially born and licensed in the state of California as a Limited Liability Company (SlightlySpecial Media LLC), with “Great Morning!” The podcast releasing its first episode on May 7th, 2019. Since its inception, the SlightlySpecial team has been working rigorously on pre and post video production, music development, sound engineering, photography, podcasts, animation, and Brand Merchandise product distribution.
