On this episode of The Jam we get reacquainted with Brook D’Leau and Miss Jack Davey aka J*Davey. This duo has been sorely missed from the music scene and gave us one of their first interviews as they prepare to roll out new material. They plan to take their fans back under their wings and guide them on a journey, as they themselves have been through journeys individually and as a group.
I first meet Brook and Miss Jack some years ago as they were preparing their major label debut. Brook and Jack jumped through multiple hoops getting their album done and endured countless fans and friends asking “When is the album coming out?” and each time promising “Soon.” At long last “New Designer Drug” hit the scene and quenched the thirst of their hardcore fan base. And just like that, they seemed to disappear. During that time Brook was working with Miguel helping do music direction for his tour, and Miss Jack became a mother to a baby boy. For a few years they were individuals, and people wondered with bated breath if they had broken up. Well fear not! J*Davey is back!
In this episode we ask a series of questions from getting the history clear on how they formed, being part of the “New West” movement of the late 2000’s, and navigating the music industry with mentorship from the likes of Sa-Ra and Questlove of The Roots. And of course the question, “Where’s the new album?”, as well as how ladies can catch Brook’s attention.
