ABOUT

The Braided Janes is an award winning, bilingual, post-punk, Latin rock band from Chicago IL USA founded in 2012 by members Jessica Rodriguez (vocals, synthesizers, guitar, tambourine),  Andrew Doyle, (bass) and Juny Alvarez (drums, caj√≥n, percussion).

 

The band formed after finalizing their previous musical collaboration, The Guardians - an electronica project co-founded by producer / songwriter Frank De La Mora and lyricist / vocalist Jessica Rodriguez which resulted in a 10 song album titled Warrior, Jessica's debut album and first time recording along with Andrew Doyle.

 

The trio reconnected with their roots weaving acoustic rock with percussive Latin beats and bilingual vocals. Each song is a gem, refined from a concept introduced during their creative jam sessions, given a heart beat and lyrical story. They mastered the ability to transcend through language and genre barriers, creating a unique and refined style of their own.

 

Their inaugural show was October of 2015. Their 4 song EP Waking The Dead debuted on April 14th 2016 on Radio One Chicago. The band later won the IMEA awards Latin Artist of The Year award in October 2016.

 

Aside from their tremendous friendship and love of music, the Braided Janes share a vision for social change -  Their debut album Waking the Dead touches base on issues such as violence against women, discrimination and the lack of accountability in the justice system. Their mission is to create music that move people on a deeper level.
