Ep 343 – Jaguar Jonze

Jaguar Jonze:

Live at Black Bear Lodge, Fortitude Valley, 21 July 2019

Jaguar Jonze is the musical guise of Brisbane creative Deena Lynch. She began her career in music recording under her first name, Deena, releasing the albums “Lone Wolf” in 2012 and “Black Cat” in 2015. In the late 2010s she began a series of creative projects across several disciplines, each with their own name: Dusky Jonze for photography, Spectator Jonze for visual art, and Jaguar Jonze for music.

After years of hard work in the industry and a string of singles, 2020 was to be a huge year for Lynch. In February she competed in the Australian selection event of the Eurovision Song Contest, dislocating a shoulder during her performance. In March she embarked on what was supposed to be a career-making promotional tour of the United States, but the COVID-19 pandemic cut short the trip almost immediately. Adding injury to insult, shortly after returning to Australia Lynch was diagnosed with COVID herself, and spent several months recovering. In April the debut Jaguar Jonze EP “Diamonds And Liquid Gold” was released as she sat in the back of an ambulance.

This set you’re about to hear was recorded in Brisbane between Lynch’s Eurovision and American adventures. She was backed on the night by Joe Fallon on guitar, Aidan Hogg on bass and Jacob Mann on drums.

Thistle:

Live at The Bearded Lady, West End, 22 August 2019

Thistle are a Brisbane trio made up of Kassie Sofia on guitar and vocals, Caroline “Canna” Townsend on bass and Joe Teague on drums. As you’ll hear in this set, they celebrated their first anniversary as a band together in August 2019 with some partying live onstage. To paint you a picture, during the set they wore party hats and presented themselves with a supermarket-bought chocolate cake.
