http://www.jjandthehunger.com/
Jaedyn James is the lead of the eight piece ‘Raw Funk & Aggressive Soul’ band called The Hunger. Consumed by her passion at 24 years old, James quit her full time job and assembled a group of musicians based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. JJ’s work ethic, energy, and music reflect the stylings of James Brown, Etta James, Lucille Ball, Marina Abromovich, and ee cummings. The combination of a powerful, modern woman using vintage sounds and attitudes is not only refreshing, but cause to celebrate.
