a girl called jaen /David (DK) Kater/Jean Yves Ducornet�
an artist comes along whose music combines undeniable honesty and sophistication,
introspection and accessibility, vulnerability and strength. a girl named
jaen blends these qualities together seamlessly on her debut opus DUSK,
an impressive recording that couples modern electronic soundscapes with
acoustic instrumentation, and compelling lyrics with infectious hooks.

melodic sensibilities with Alanis Morissette's raw emotion, at times echoing
Shirley Manson's sensual coolness and an underground Sneaker Pimps feel,

on my own terms, to have fun musically while exploring lyrical themes
that were important or interesting to me. And to embrace some issues that
most people have trouble even acknowledging."

feature films (Love Philosophy, The Young Unknowns and Body Language),
