Jackie Lynn is an alter ego of Haley Fohr, who performed as Circuit Des Yeux at the Saint Ghetto Festival 2018, a performance that will be remembered for a long time to come.
But unlike Circuit Des Yeux, Jackie Lynn is not a solo project in the truest sense, as it gives her the opportunity to be part of a band. A role she grasps with both hands on her latest, second Jackie Lynn album and the accompanying tour. She is joined on stage by Cooper Crain, Rob Frye and Dan Quinlivan. These three Chicago musicians are known as Bitchin Bajas, not least because of their recurring collaboration with Bonnie Prince Billy.
Musically, too, Jackie Lynn’s sound is very different from the congenial, but also very hermetic and dark work of Circuit Des Yeux. «Casino Queen», the first single from the upcoming album (set for release in April) sounds as lively and colourful as the title suggests. A drum computer and synthesizer feature on most of Jackie Lynn’s tracks. So, it’s no wonder that Haley Fohr needs more than one platform to shine a light on her diverse musical interests. But her amazing vocals are the one thing that will always give her away.
