Bio

Saint Jacques are a diverse and extremely wholesome indie-folk-rock band from Adelaide. Their gentle homemade sound is defined by lush strings, earthy drums, twinkly guitars, soft piano and the distinct voices of the group's many singers.

2019 has seen Saint Jacques open for the likes of Alex the Astronaut, Body Type and Pinkish Blu. The group headlined the Girls Rock! Stage at a Day of Clarity 2019 in a festival line-up packed with the likes of Camp Cope, Jen Cloher, West Thebarton, Jess Day and Bec Stevens.

Expect new music from the group over the new year period, as well as a string of huge shows, both at home and interstate.

Saint Jacques are:

Jacob - guitar, singing
Joanne - singing
Katie - guitar, singing
Anna - violin, singing
Koleh - bass
Hugh - drums

If Sufjan Stevens was the leader of DMA's. Worlds colliding.

Every moment of this tune was a delicate well planned delight, filled with mystery and wonder. The lead vocals hold a raw innocence that leads into some beautiful beyond grace harmonies. Thanks for such an elegant experience.
