Recently J. Graves has been featured in NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest who said of their song “Eleven”, “Pairs well with: dancing away from your mistakes...”. Against all odds, J. Graves is back in 2020, with a crushing new EP Deathbed, and a record label Illumin, that seeks to leverage community and technology to advocate for womxn and gender non-conforming artists. Jessa Graves is joined by Aaron MacDonald on the drums and Kelly Clifton on the bass.
On Deathbed J. Graves levels up as a band. Leader Jessa Graves' voice is stronger than ever, even as she examines the relationship failure that resulted in the songs on the EP. It’s clear there will be no sophomore slump for J. Graves, the tempo is faster, the changes more frequent, the band is tighter, and the approach even more aggressive.
J. Graves is efficiency personified, the body of rock ‘n’ roll, the living example of repurposing personal and emotional refuse for growth. Through chaotic, cathartic music, technology, advocacy, and community J. Graves is defining the future of music, giving us all life, from their Deathbed.
