MNspin Artist of the Week: Bye Bye Banshee
September 21 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Bye Bye Banshee is the side project of Minnesota songwriter and poet, Jezebel Jones, and features a line-up of outstanding twin cities musicians. Original songs—an eclectic mix of jazz/blues, folk, classical and gothic rock—are stitched together with spoken word pieces, inviting listeners to contemplate death and grief in a way that connects us with each other and with nature.
Bye Bye Banshee’s first EP–Deathfolk Magic–was recorded, mixed and mastered by Tom Garneau (Prince, Sting) and released to the public on October 5, 2018. Jim Walsh says, “This new vehicle for Minneapolis songwriter Jezebel Jones is an ancient-sounding shot of swampy blues (“If I Die In My Dreams”) and witchy folk-rock (“Skull Rattles”) that makes for an extremely haunting trip into the afterlife via song.”
