Jollee

“Their sound is huge, lyrically it’s fun and she is a perfect
example of why women are born to rock”
– Tracey Moyle, Good Call Live Magazine

Known for her devilish sass and theatrical performance, Jollee takes you on a wild Wonder Woman Rock n Roll ride to the other side. Combining old school rock with heavy blues; these hard rockers are recreating history and making it their own with powerfully fierce vocals, heavy drum beats, unique guitar riffs and thick bass lines, Jollee’s innovative and energetic tunes are truly unshakable.

Hailing from Gold Coast, Australia these rockers are passionate, quirky, hella funny and put on a performance you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

Q+A with Jollee - Radio Venice

Rafael Moreira

Guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer Rafael (pronounced Hafael) Moreira, began singing at age four and performing on the nylon string acoustic guitar at age six, taught by his mother, a music teacher, singer and songwriter in Brazil. With his first electric guitar at age eight, he formed a band with his two older brothers as the rhythm section and began performing live.

Rafael’s debut instrumental album Acid Guitar (an eclectic instrumental blend of Rock, Jazz and Brazilian music with vocal lines complimenting the song’s melodies and soulful, shredding guitar solos), was well ahead of its time, but the project established him with audiences worldwide as well as spotlighting him as a preeminent musician and relentless performer at concerts and clinics in the U.S., Singapore, Japan and Australia.

The Aliens That Ate Hollywood

The Aliens were formed at the request of David Catching (guitar player for Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal) to open up for his band Earthlings? at The Opium Den in Hollywood in November of 1998.

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures) was in the audience of that first gig and requested The Aliens adjourn with him out to The Rancho De La Luna recording studio in Joshua Tree, California to take part in a series of recordings he had been doing called The Desert Sessions. The Aliens were featured in Desert Sessions Volume 6.
