Jai Malano

Jai Malano


“Whiskey & Blues” is the quintessential phrase used to describe Jai Malano. Imagine a voice as vast and wide as Texas, with a presence as bold and sensuous as the exotic swampy sands of Florida. In her gritty interpretations of ‘Hound Dog’ and ‘So Good To My Baby’, she gives a tasteful nod to the heroes of Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll. It’s that same respect and admiration for artists like Big Mama Thornton and Big Maybelle, that inspired her own clever writing skills in original tunes, ‘Dont’ and ‘Johnny Knows’. Her debut solo album entitled ‘Rocket Girl’, was released in 2015 and consists of eight original tunes as well as works by Big Joe Tex and Ike Turner. She has also independently released four singles,’Lay My Heart at Your Grave’, ’Never Look Down’. ‘Hearts Never Break Themselves’, and ‘Practice What is Right’—all available for download. Festival dates have included the Tours Festival in France (July 2015), the SJOCK Fest in Belgium (July 2015), the Bossa & Jazz Festival in Brazil (September 2015), the Dark Season Blues Festival in Norway (October 2015), the Doheny Blues Festival in Dana Point, CA (May 2015), SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX (March 2016),Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender in Las Vegas, NV (April 2016), and the ACL Music Festival in Austin, TX (October 2016). After taking time off to wed and spend time with family, Jai Malano is back, better than ever, and ready to blow you away from start to finish as a show stopping powerhouse you don’t ever want to miss.
