Capaldi studied piano and voice with his father, a music teacher, and by his teens he was playing drums with his friends. At age 14 he founded the band the Sapphires and served as their lead vocalist.  In 1963 he formed the band ‘the Hellions, with friends Dave Mason (guitar) and Gordon Jackson (rhythm guitar) while Capaldi himself switched to drums. After several line up and band name changes, Jim Capaldi eventually co-founded the group ‘Traffic’ with Steve Winwood.

After Traffic broke up in 1974, Capaldi pursued a solo career. His first album, ‘Short Cut Draw Blood’, was released in 1979. He continued to release albums throughout the 1980s and 1990s, including the critically acclaimed Fierce Heart in 1983.
