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.

Mum’s Tennis Friends:

Live at The Bearded Lady, West End, 19 January 2020

Mum’s Tennis Friends is a project comprised of members of Dopamine, Harry Wall and Eliza & The Delusionals. The band formed in mid-2018, when lead singer Ruby Lee deferred university and was looking to create a new project different to her usual bass-playing gigs. This set you’re about to hear was from a bushfire benefit at The Bearded Lady that raised over $1000 for the Animal Rescue Collective and the Red Cross, and was originally supposed to be the band’s last.

Ruby Lee also plays bass in Eliza & The Delusionals, who had an extensive tour of the United States booked from February to May. When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down music venues across America in March, the tour was cut short. Lee has since regrouped and redefined Mum’s Tennis Friends as a recording project and a new single is expected to be released within the next few weeks.
