"My curiosity will drive me to any place I have never been before. There are three things I plan on doing for my entire life; making music, traveling and loving," Jeanne says
It’s not often that a debut record sounds as assured and powerful as Abby Jeanne’s Rebel Love. Released this March, the soul singer delivers a stunner of a vocal performance. In advance of her Cactus Club show on Sunday, November 12 with Thriftones and Abram Shook, the Milwaukee-based Jeanne discusses her debut, a busy 2017, traveling the world and her latest single.
On Rebel Love track “Aged Young (2016),” you said “2016 gave you gray hair.” How has 2017 been treating you?
I find Rebel Love a mellow, meditative and very personal album. Would you consider these songs a method of self-healing?
Has your relationship towards these songs evolved over the past nine months since the album came out?
The mood has changed drastically on your latest single, “Cosmic Beings” (“Wake up/ Your heart is on fire/ Let go/ The future looks bright”). Do you find yourself more optimistic these days?
