About the album
Solo-project of Dutch musician Jessica Sligter, formerly known as 'JÆ', who otherwise explores more experimental grounds with different formations in Norway, Holland and the USA.
Norwegian label Hubro released her full length debut ´Balls and Kittens, Draught and strangling Rain´ october 2010, under the name 'JÆ'.
Jessica's music is an eclectic mix of influences including pop, pre-war blues, classical music, rock, free improvised music and more, resulting in an intimate, beautiful sound that is kind of like those chocolate eggs: addictive, tasty, and there´s a surprise inside.
Jessica's second solo-album is due to be released in October 2012 by Hubro (under her real name). The record is mixed by Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Jesse Sykes).
