Bio

Sydney based outfit Jackie Brown Jr are a vibrant 5 piece known for their unique brand of music, dubbed affectionately as ‘Pulp Fiction Soul Rock’. Founded in 2014 with a mutual love for any thing to do with music making, Jackie Brown Jr combines upbeat, funk-infused elements of soul, rock and hip hop.

“‘Lake Loser’ begins as a gentle stroll for your morning coffee, evoking sunbeams through half-­closed curtains as Madeleine Mallis ​delivers her husky narrative of finding one’s feet.”
­- Ripe Music​ on 'Lake Loser'

“Jackie Brown Jr are something of a unicorn in the Australian scene, boasting extremely listenable music with a raw, original energy that is unmatched.”
­- Phantasmagoria Magazine​ on 'Jackie Brown Jr'

“It’s one of those songs that draws you in and blows your mind back out the other side. A single melody line and a couple of cymbals, and Jackie Brown Jr are singing the listener into their world for three minutes and forty­-eight seconds.”
­- Alt Media ​on 'Dud Street’

This one's the most straight up and undeniable track that I've heard from JBJ yet. It works. We all wish we could sing like Maddie.
