Jessie Evans

The American saxophonist Jessie Evans debuted in 2000 in a girls’ band SUBTONIX from San Francisco. In 2002 Jessie created a project entitled THE VANISHING, in which she is the leader, saxophonist and bass guitarist. Since 2003 JESSIE had been playing in the band AUTONERVOUS, exploring more electronic sounds. 2004 brought her cooperation with Glass Candy, the legend of Portland’s music scene, and with Hannin Elias (vocalist of ATARI TEENAGE RIOT). She started working with Elias and at the same time she moved to Europe, namely Berlin. In the same year Evans and Bettina Koster, vocalist of the icon group MALARIA! established an electro-duo together. In 2007 Jessie Evans started working on her solo project, cooperating with: Budgie (SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES, THE CREATURES), Martin Wenk (Calexico), Namosh (Berlin), and above all with Toby Dammit. The album is produced by Thomas Stern (EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN/CRIME AND THE CITY SOLUTION).

Toby Dammit, who will perform with Jessie at her concert in Wrocław, is famous for his 9-year-long cooperation with Iggy Pop and at the same time he played with Swans and The Residents. The list of his other collaborators is also impressive, as it includes: Rufus Wainright, Ely Guerra, Keren Ann, Devendra Banhart, Frank Black, Johnny Depp and Neil Tennan.
