Music began fairly early into her childhood, as Jett started classical piano training. She added clarinet as she joined the school orchestra and shortly after, taught herself guitar. Her love of music spans across genres to include a myriad of influences from blues, to folk, to alternative/industial, to electronic to reggae/ska/dub. Dance has also been a big part of her musical evolution and she found herself on the dancefloor as a club kid exploring the alternative music scene of the late 80s and 90s. With the inception of electronic music, she was lured by the surreal sounds of acts like Rabbit in the Moon, the Hardkiss brothers, Utah Saints, and 808 State. In her hometown of Sarasota, FL, there were local djs such as Johnny Boy and Mojo introducing the sounds of Jungle/DnB where she first heard the talents of 88.3 (feat Lisa May “Wishing on a Star”), DB, Peshay, Arena 39, Chuckleberry, and Goldie.
Jett cut her first vocal demo in “99″ with a local Sarasota producer. The demo landed in the hands of Mike Nice (Mike and Charlie) with whom she collaborated on his album “Foundation Breaks”. She went on to be introduced to Micheal Brown of Black Reign Recordings/Point Audio Recordings who offered her a chance to record vocals for a couple of DnB producers he was working with and the rest is history.
Jett began work with amazing producers such as Kharm and Fluxem and has continued collaborating with producers worldwide, bringing her original vocal/lyrical ideas together with the unique and original music of such producers as LM1, Ghosts of Paraguay, Mr. Joseph, Division, BMK, Motta, Vento, A Daily Recommence, Pole Folder, Mr. Joseph, Crix, Man In A Room, ATP, Qumulus, Pete Rann, Subz, ID3, R:Monix, Danoo, Kubatko, Alexsander Markovich, Mage, Audio Habitat, to name a few. Beginning with Drum and Bass, her collaborations have expanded to include many different genres of musical composition such as IDM, Progressive House and Trance, DownTempo, Rock and other experimental forms such as Jazz and soundtrack styles, making it impossible to fit her work into a particular genre.
With more than 50 releases since 2006, Jett’s vocal collaborations have been heard on such influential podcasts as Bassdrive and LiquidsoundsUK. Her work can also be found on labels such as Offworld Recordings, Loodma, Point Audio,Telluric Recordings, Reworck, Audio Danger, Vibration, Purple Edge Recordings, In Da Jungle Recordings, Peer Pressure, Tympanik, Esprit, Corinthian, Kinetic, Liquid Brilliants, and Santorin.
Jett has started her own labels, Percussive Nature and Pretty Gritty Kitty (PGK), in an effort to escape the anonymity of simply being “the vocalist” and to bring a fairness to the world of musical artists and the financial trickle down that so often gets lost on the distribution end. Principle prevails!
