Jean Caffeine plays a punky blend of pop and folk roots. A singer songwriter and band front person, Jean has kicked out the jams in more than one continent. At home in S.F coffee houses, Texas roadhouses and in the Foreign Press club in Phonem Phen, Cambodia, she’s played festivals such as NXNE in Canada, BID in Germany, and SXSW and CMJ in the US.
Caffeine has had more lives than a cat. She drummed for 70’s SF all girl band the Urge and NYC 15-minutes-of-famers Pulsallama. They opened for the Clash, had their picture in Interview Magazine, and got kicked off a bill with PIL ltd.
Jean went on to front her own y’allternative country band Jean Caffeine’s All Nite Truckstop out of Austin, TX in the 90s.
The 21st century finds Jean on a more singer/songwriter tack, adding pop and folk rock into the mix. Previous releases include “Rig Rock Truckstop 45”, “Hard Work and a Lot of Hairspray” and the albums “Jean Caffeine’s All Nite Truckstop”, “Knocked Down 7 Times, Got up 8”, and “Idee Fixe”.
“If Austin had an answer to Chrissie Hynde, it’s Jean and her mature punk snarl. Of course as a longtime Texan, there’s a solid rootsiness to her terrific songcraft…” -Raul Hernandez, Austin Chronicle
“Miss I-was-alternative-country before-alternative-country-was-cool.” -Dallas Observer
“A cross between Brenda Lee and Patti Smith.” -Austin American Statesmen
