J-KNEE JANUARY, musician
J-kNee January is the front woman for the rock band The Januariez. The band has played all over the Pacific Northwest, performing with local friends Watch it Sparkle, The Navins, Furniture Girls, and Seeing Blind as well as well known acts such as Nico Vega, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Quick and Easy Boys, and Hot Panda. After a chance meeting, punk legend, Alice Bag, asked The Januariez to be her backing band for a few shows which included a performance at the Women Who Rock Conference. Those shows were followed by a trip to SXSW a short Mid-South tour.
Described by Innocent Words magazine as “T.Rex with a little Thin Lizzy and Veruca Salt fronted by Ani DiFranco,” The Januariez have a little something for everyone. With a year together and 20 shows behind them, the band just finished recording their first full length album with Jack Endino. The album, Authentic, set for release October 2012, will be followed with a couple of regional tours.
