J*DaVeY


With production ranging from the spastic, space-age drums of “Mr. Mister” to the celestial keys of “Might As Well”, The Beauty in Distortion plays with the variance and depth of a polished, full album. Throughout the 23 tracks, two constants bind the project together in a mystical fashion: the steamy vocal musings of Jack Davey and the bleeps, drums, and melodies of Brook D’Leau. Heralded as a cross between Prince and the B-52s, J*DaVeY is in fact influenced by too many genres to count. A fusion of funk, surf, soul, hip-hop, and electronic secret sauce, the J*DaVeY EPs will satiate starving fans from all ends of the musical spectrum.
