Flint Eastwood is an alt-pop project based around the work of Detroit-based singer/songwriter Jax Anderson.
With wide-ranging influences from Spaghetti Westerns to Motown to mainstream dance pop, Anderson has built a reputation for her uncompromising style and high energy stage presence. Initially launched as more rock-oriented band project, the original quartet released their debut EP, Late Nights Bolo Ties, in 2012, melding bluesy guitar riffing and bright electronica behind Anderson's strong vocals. A few years later she reinvented Flint Eastwood as a solo venture with a lush sound geared more toward synth pop. This new incarnation reintroduced itself with the Small Victories EP in 2015. "Saviors," a collaborative single with Gosh Pith and Syblyng, arrived a year later, after which Anderson signed with New York label Neon Gold Records. "Queen," her debut single for the label, found Flint Eastwood's sound further evolving into sophisticated, bombastic pop. A collaboration with eclectic Flint-based singer/rapper Tunde Olaniran followed in early 2017. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
