"Music for the front-lines, in a time when the word revolution is alternatively mocked, pimped, played-out and ignored, Jean Jeanie makes it like another world is still possible. She evokes just about everything great in the pantheon of rock-and-roll. Patti Smith’s poetics, the art-drenched cool of St. Vincent and X-Ray Specs. The harmonies of the Wilson Sisters. The gospel according to Saints Strummer, Near and Makeba.
On stage and in the studio, Jean Jeanie performs rogue/solo, navigating vocals and multiple electronic and traditional instruments; other times she activates a cadre of musician collaborators, currently including Mike Gaworecki on lead guitar, Antonio Alejandro Madrigal Casteneda Russell on noise/keys/vocals and poetivist Thea Matthews on insights.
Future Twin is currently putting the finishing touches on her debut album and will be touring extensively alongside its release. She has shared stages with La Femme, the Black Lips, Black Angels, Heartless Bastards, Thee Oh Sees, Lightning Bolt and Two Gallants.
