Jezzebelle are a two-piece from Dublin, Ireland.
“…Their high octane-propulsion, and driving dogmatic rhythms mark them out from the crowd…”
- Siobhán Long, The Ticket, Irish Times (Dirt Tracks album Review)
2009 will see a brand new album from Jezzebelle. They hit the studio in Feb/March with new songs and a new rhythm section, taking the acoustic sound of their first album ‘Dirt Tracks’ and pushing it into a new realm. They will also perform as one of the top 30 bands to be chosen for this years JD-Set competition in February, hoping to make it into the final 10 to compete for the major prize.
In June 2008 Jezzebelle headed to Los Angeles for 3 months where they completed a 55-date tour, playing venue’s like House Of Blues, Canters, Rainbow Bar & Grill and as special guest to Yogi (guitarist – Chris Cornell), Lisa Harrington (keyboardist – Smashing Pumpkins). March 2008 saw the release of The Potential Collection Vol. 2, an acoustic compilation of upbeat songs by Irish acts associated with The Zodiac Sessions (named Dublin’s finest Open Mic Night by Hotpress Magazine). Jezzebelle song Bad Seed is the opening track on the album.
To coincide with this release, the music video for Bad Seed was launched in February ’08 and has since been featured on TG4’s POP4, City Channel’s Pure Music and on the web by YouTube, MySpace and Music Scene Ireland. The album was also named Album of The Fortnight by Jackie Hayden of Hotpress Magazine following the release.
In May ’08 Jezzebelle played The Carlsberg Kilkenny Rhythm & Roots Festival for the 2nd year running and after winning last years Dublin’s NOISE Concerts Battle Of The Bands, appeared as special guests for Eric Bell (Thin Lizzy), Don Baker and Rob Strong. Right now they are writing and recording material for their new album, the follow up to their 2007 debut – Dirt Tracks.
