Bourgeoisie Paper Jam
Singles and EPs
The members of the funk powerhouse are husband and wife team, Bruce and Vox. They do ALL THE THINGS! Also, Bruce playing bass, vocals, and every other instrument under the sun, he writes/produces with his wife, who also co-writes, does vocals and plays keyboard when she’s really feeling it. But that ain’t it, chief! They also truly personify the nature of the D.I.Y. Rock Stars—a name that they coined—because not only do they write music, but they run a blog, a YouTube channel, and a podcast that caters to nurturing a D.I.Y. lifestyle (http://www.bloomingprejippie.com). They also license music for apps. The two ended up meeting and marrying in Detroit, Michigan (USA), where they have been making music since 1986. Their artistic philosophy is the same: make the music that speaks to you no matter how genre-defying it can seem sometimes. This is why they have written in so many different styles—under so many different names—that it might make you dizzy to sift through them; everything from house music to folk to jazz to experimental. Their name comes from the frustration of following pre-established rules set forth by others, but later they co-opted the sophistication and it became a method by which to subvert the rules. The music is super funky. In fact, it is the album that harkens back to the funk of Sly Stone and Prince, along with a little Johnny Guitar Watson thrown in for flavor. It’s the album for funk fans of love that music of yesterday, but with new songs.
